NPR Exec Resigns Over Juan Williams

It looks like Juan Williams took NPR’s senior vice president of news, Ellen Weiss, down with him. Weiss has resigned following a review of her firing of Juan Williams over remarks he made on Fox’s The O’Reilly Factor. In addition to Weiss’ departure, NPR announced a plan to “review and define the roles of NPR journalists” to better fit a multi-platform news environment, “balancing the opportunities presented by such outlets and platforms with the potential for conflicts of interest that may compromise NPR's mission." On The O'Reilly Factor, Williams said that people in "Muslim garb" on planes make him nervous, and after he was fired received a three-year contract with Fox News.
