Former NPR commentator Juan Williams spoke exclusively to FoxNation.com about the NPR sting video, which captured NPR senior executive Ron Schiller in a bigoted and revealing rant about conservatives, Jews and the American taxpayer. “This was an act of incredible condescension,” said Williams. “The rank hypocrisy of his remarks was telling for me. They will say things to your face about how there’s no liberal orthodoxy at NPR, how they play it straight, but now you see it for what it is. They prostitute themselves for money.”
Williams said Schiller’s remarks about the Jews dominating the newspaper industry was “outright anti-Semitism,” and labeling Tea Party members “gun-toting” “racists” reveals “their real feelings.” This is how they talk in boardrooms and editorial meetings, explained Williams. “This is how they really feel.”
Just yesterday, NPR CEO Vivian Schiller told the National Press Club that NPR needed taxpayer money to survive as an institution … but Ron Schiller revealed in the sting video that NPR doesn’t need federal funds. “They’re up on Capitol Hill saying we need money, asking for an increase in fact, telling everyone else to sacrifice so they can have icing on their cake … just to preserve their biased agenda when we’re $14 trillion in debt,” Williams said.
Ron Schiller said he was “proud” of the way Williams was fired, which contradicted the official NPR line where they “regret” they way it was handled. This really struck Williams. “This shows a real lack of remorse … these people say one thing in public, then candidly say I need to see a shrink and they’re proud of what went down … it shows exactly who the villains are.”
