Juan Williams’s Day Wasn’t So Bad After All


After getting the boot from NPR over comments he made on Fox News about getting “nervous” when he sees Muslims on planes, Juan Williams received defense from many quarters. But none so lucrative as the backup that came from Fox News itself, which signed him to a $2 million, three-year contributor’s deal. “Juan has been a staunch defender of liberal viewpoints since his tenure began at Fox News in 1997,” said FNC’s Roger Ailes. “He’s an honest man whose freedom of speech is protected by Fox News on a daily basis.”
