‘I wondered why NPR didn’t simply discipline Williams’

Washington Post
A WP chatter asks Poynter's Kelly McBride why NPR "didn't simply discipline Juan Williams and ask him to issue an on-air apology" for his remarks. She responds: "I think NPR has been pretty open about the fact that they have had some problems in the past with Juan's opinions on Fox. So discipline may have been out of the question. But ultimately, I think NPR and Fox have such different journalism values, I don't think the arrangement could last."
