NPR CEO Vivian Schiller: Juan Williams should have kept his feelings about Muslims between himself and "his psychiatrist or his publicist."

She is about to be fired.
It is well overdue on pulling the TAXPAYER funding of this commie front group....The 1st amend does not just apply to liberal commies...
I wonder what NPR’s reaction will be when a Fatwa is issued against Juan and if he is then killed as a result of their labeling him as anti-muslim?
Way to be classy Vivian. It’s not bad enough you deny a man his free speech, you do it by demeaning him as well. Maybe your psychiatrist needs to deal with your Napoleon complex and your need to exercise inappropriate power over others. But then I guess free speech is only for liberals when bashing Christians, isn’t it?
I think She was just engaging in opinion and punditry in violation of the new NPR rules.
No worries, they will be privatized very soon!
These “liberals” look more and more effete and insular every day. Every hour, even.
In fact, they are not “liberals” at all, at least not in the classical Rousseau sense, but rather they are totalitarians in the Mao sense.
Looks like Ms. Schiller has opened herself to a nice little liable lawsuit. NPR was likely within its rights to fire Williams, but her comments very likely cross the legal line. I hope so.
What can we do to stop our tax dollars going to support NPR?
Juan Williams is a commentator. She is saying a commentator should keep his opinions to himself or his psychiatrist. Awful and idiotic comment by her. I think it’s ironic.
“She is about to be fired.”
Yup. Too bad the whole lot of NPR isn’t, too.
What a coincidence. Earlier there was a story about the shrinks’ association/board or what have you classifying dissent as a mental illness.
NPR can be reached here:
Call them and tell them you will BOYCOTT their SPONSORS until they stop their CEO’s RACISM and re-hire Juan Williams.
>>She is about to be fired.<<
I think you are right. Still, she should just stop digging. She’s already in awfully deep.
Typical Stalinist racist smear using the color of psychiatry.
NPR is proterrorist, antiWestern, proStalinist.
How Soviet of her.
In the former Soviet Union, one way dissidents were dealt with was to throw them in “mental hospitals”.
Show of hands at NPR who feels nervous on a plane with Mooselips on it? Hypocrites.
Pray for America
I don’t care about Juan and his ignorance regarding conservatives, but I care even less for NPR. Americans shouldn’t have to fund that garbage.
Actually, the quickest and easiest way to have an affect on NPR...is to demand that the NPR HQ’s and entire establishment...leave DC. Congress has BRAC’ed the military and accomplished several moves involving parts of the US gov’t...so a move for NPR would be in order.
My suggestions? Knoxville, TN or Branson, Missouri. The logic here is that 95 percent of the journalists would say no, and they’d have to rebuild from scratch. I suspect that this new environment would do wonders for the attitude and the topics that are regularly featured.
Pretty soon, the NPR will be spending money on re-education camps and requiring all employees to attend or else...
Schiller’s manner became less severe.
“I am taking trouble with you, Juan,” she said, “because you are worth trouble. You know perfectly well what is the matter with you. You have known it for years, though you have fought against the knowledge. You are mentally deranged.”
wonder how many times Viv has talked to $oro$ in the last 48 hours? Perhaps she can show her phone records?
Pray for America
Perhaps NPR CEO Vivian Schiller’s comments should be kept to herself.
She should be “ask to resign” (govt speak for fired) for any number of things, running an govt funded orginization with a so heavily liberal/socialist bias that it wreaks, allowing a double standard regarding NPR employees who do not express said liberal/socialist viewpoint, and on and on.
RE: She is about to be fired.
If she’s the CEO of this government funded organization , who is her boss?
An afront to all those suffering from mental illness.
Obama has gone to their head and they are coming out of the woodwork...the imbedded communist parasites that is. Well too bad they are out of OPM..
Today Fox signed Juan to a new three-year contract for nearly $2 million. Meanwhile, conservative figures blast the public radio network for its response to Williams’ comments about Muslims.
She reports to the NPR board:
Actually just cut off tax funding is the best way to rid ourselves of these pests.
Liberals give themselves passes on their own hatred. Trust me - her hateful comment will be seen as ‘objective news analysis”.... We should start a thread of ugly things these folks have said ... course it would be so long it might crash the servers...
The NPR entities are another example of the nonprofit laws gone crazy in America. Like 100’s of thousands of other bogus “charities” NPR should not exist unless it is run like any other business and pays taxes. There should be no nonprofits in the country (there are zero in Mexico, for example) unless the entity feeds, clothes or houses people.
Read the NPR financials and see what a huge waste this is:
I know the psychiatrist she should see. Dr. Malik Nasan.
Oh, that’s a neutral and objective statement.
Oh, that’s a neutral and objective statement.
My suggestions? Knoxville, TN
Don’t suggest that. We’re going to have enough problems with the new RINO Governor, soon to be elected.
The lady needs to be fired and I hope that Juan has a cause of action against NPR and Ms. Vivian.
Liberals generally get real nasty when they feel you’ve crossed them.
May I add one more “city” to your list.
Robbinsville, North Carolina. About 100 miles west of Gimmorah of the South, A_Sheville.
Lovely place, beautiful scenery(Joyce Kilmer Wilderness), and wonderful normal looking folks.
Humor me one more, New Port Tennessee.
Caddis the Elder
(it's so similar to the U.N., why not?)
Her higher ups are the ones that told her to fire him, she said in an earlier article that the decision was made up the ladder.
Bob Gibbs and now Vivian Schiller want people to get their heads examined. Projection anyone?
I AM a psychiatrist, and I just wrote him a hand-written letter on my stationary offering him my support and condolences.
The man doesn’t need my professional help - he simply needs an employer that honors the role of free speech in a democratic republic.
I will report back if I get a response from the Ombudsman.
