Firing Juan

Juan Williams has moved on - NPR's loss, in my view. This part of the story is finished.

The unresolved part is more worrisome. The mismanagement of this affair is appalling! NPR has a great legacy which will be eroded quickly by inept leadership. It's not possible for any of us to determine whether Vivian Schiller is competent, but her "psychiatrist" comments in Atlanta should be viewed as a standards violation equal to (or greater than) Juan's. I'd like to see the affiliates organization insist that NPR's board take ownership of this problem and assure us all that a thorough, independent review is conducted immediately. NPR has accepted $1.8M from George Soros. Competent leadership is required to manage the relationship with his group and other influencers who would seek to mold the network's contribution.
