Juan Williams provides a scathing inside look into the culture that prevails at NPR. What emerges is far worse than any of us might have imagined. Mr. Williams was fired for candidly describing his feelings, despite the fact that he carefully qualified everything he said, yet NPR's efforts to control and marginalize him have been longstanding and systematic.

I listen to NPR regularly, however their bias comes across in many ways--they are about as "fair and balanced" as FOX News. The big difference is that Juan Williams could go on NPR and air opinions that run counter to the FOX bias with no fear of receiving a call from FOX terminating his contract.
