I get nervous.” | Related: George Soros’ Millions Buying ‘Political Reporters’ For NPR | CAIR Asks NPR to Address Analyst’s Remarks on Muslims | NPR Statement On The Termination Of Juan Williams’ Contract | Atlanta Journal-Constitution: First interview with NPR CEO Vivian Schiller on Juan Williams firing | NPR’s ombudsman: “Even though NPR handled this situation badly, the fact remains that NPR must uphold its journalistic standards, which, after all, provide the basis that earned public radio’s reputation for quality.”
