Juan Williams: ‘It’s Not Fun Being Called a Bigot and a Bad Journalist’

Early morning’s Charlie Rose had another late night last night as the “CBS This Morning” anchor moderated a discussion¬† sponsored by The Guardian called “Commercial Pressures vs. Journalistic Standards.” FishbowlNY was there:

The panel featured someone who knows first-hand about the pressures of journalistic standards. Juan Williams was dramatically fired by NPR in 2010. Williams, who remains a contributor to Fox News, has had time to reflect on his ugly end to an 11-year tenure.

“It’s not fun being called a bigot and a bad journalist,” Williams tells FishbowlNY. “The degree to which it was about assailing my personal reputation, struck me as Kafkaesque. I didn’t know what to make of it.”
