What’s In a Name! NPR Wants Off O’Reilly Factor

JuanMadman.jpgHow much does NPR not want anything to do with Fox’s O’Reilly Factor? They have apparently asked NPR correspondent Juan Williams to request that Fox remove his NPR identification whenever he appears on the show. Hard to be clearer than that!

Seems that NPR is tired of dealing with the angry emails Williams generates from his Fox appearances which land on their doorstep. To wit: Williams’ remark on the Factor a few weeks back about Michelle Obama channeling “Stokely Carmichael-in-a-designer-dress thing.” Says NPR ombudman Alicia C. Shepard:

To date, I’ve received 56 angry emails. For comparison, this year so far, listeners sent 13 emails about Steve Inskeep, 8 about Mara Liasson and 6 about Cokie Roberts — other NPR personalities who I often get emails about.

All of which makes us wonder: who’s complaining about Cokie Roberts!
