NPR RACISTS? Hume: Race had role in NPR firing Williams.

“In the culture of NPR, appearing on Fox is a sin,” Hume said on “Fox News Sunday,” with regular panelist Williams sitting a few seats away. “And in the culture of NPR, for an African-American man like Juan, regardless of his personal stature, to be there and be kind of a Bill Cosby liberal, not a down-the-line liberal, is a sin as well. They’ve been gunning for him for years.”

Williams also called the firing a “pretext,” saying he was personally offended by NPR CEO Vivian Schiller’s public suggestion that Williams needed to see a psychiatrist, which he called “character assassination.”

Not a smart move for NPR.
