National Public Radio

Juan Williams was fired from NPR this week for saying he got “nervous” when he got on a plane and saw Muslims in “Muslim garb.”
National Public Radio has fired news analyst Juan Williams after Williams appeared on a Fox News broadcast and shared a personal opinion about Muslims and airplanes. Now Republicans are saying it was censorship, and want public funding of NPR stopped. Don Shelby says the debate over Williams’ words has gone beyond what he said.
