Juan Williams' unfortunate firing by NPR raises a question: Can we admit to having our own prejudices while arguing against other people's prejudices? Speaking on "The O'Reilly Factor" at Fox News, where he also was a paid commentator, Williams said people in "Muslim garb" on planes make him "worried" and "nervous." For that, NPR released Williams from his job as a senior news analyst, saying the remarks "were inconsistent with our editorial standards."
