Seems odd from the group that so ardently talks about freedom of speech. Guess that only applies if you agree with their world view. US public radio fires analyst over Muslim comments: WASHINGTON (AFP) â A top US public radio network has sacked a senior news analyst after he made disparaging remarks about Muslims on television. National Public Radio (NPR) said it notified Juan Williams late Wednesday that it was terminating his contract as a senior news analyst for NPR News. On his show "The O'Reilly Factor," host Bill O'Reilly said: "The cold truth is that in the world today, jihad, aided and abetted by some Muslim nations, is the biggest threat on the planet." Williams, who is also a political analyst for Fox News, said he concurred with O'Reilly, adding: "I think, look, political correctness can lead to some kind of paralysis where you don't address reality." The analyst said he felt nervous when boarding planes with Muslims on board. "I mean, look, Bill, I'm not a bigot. You know the kind of books I've written about the civil rights movement in this country," Williams said. "But when I get on the plane, I got to tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they are identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried. I get nervous."
