A few of you have emailed and asked if I’m going to comment on Juan Williams– how about hearing from a far more distinguished employee of WAMU, instead? I’m referring to Diane Rehm; Williams will be on the second hour of The Diane Rehm Show, tomorrow.
Juan Williams is a political commentator for Fox News and until last week he was also a news analyst for NPR. He joined NPR in 1999 as the daily host of Talk of The Nation, and in recent years he’s served as an NPR senior national correspondent. His comments on Fox’s The O’Reilly Factor last week prompted a seemingly abrupt dismissal from NPR. Juan Williams talks about his career, his roles as news analyst and commentator, and his reaction to the recent controversy over his dismissal from NPR. [link]
