Interesting incident within the NPR (National Public Radio) internal offices this past week:

Juan Williams, a  longtime news analyst for NPR, recently made comments concerning the national concern surrounding  Muslims within social discussion while appearing on The O’Reilly Factor, aired on the Fox News channel Monday night. Such comments lead to Williams’ contract being terminated by NPR.

Bill O’Reilly, host of The O’Reilly Factor, recently made an appearance on the ABC television show, The View, in which he “directly blamed” all Muslims for the 9/11 attacks. O’Reilly was looking for supported arguments for this statement on his own show, The O’Reilly Factor, in which Juan Williams appeared.
