Millions of Americans rely on the mainstream media to inform them. 

However, the vast majority of these media outlets have a far-Left bias and show little to no tolerance for any opinions that stray from their radical agenda. 

But Juan Williams did not hold back against this prolific mainstream media outlet. 

Juan Williams just set the record straight about his time with NPR

Although many on the Left view National Public Radio (NPR) as a moderate and unbiased news source, a quick analysis of its content shows a strong left-wing bias. 

You will be hard-pressed to find a story on NPR that casts Donald Trump and his supporters in a good light.

However, NPR’s left-leaning bias dates back further than Donald Trump. 

On Tuesday, veteran NPR editor Uri Berliner published an essay that skewered NPR’s bias.

Out of the 87 members of the NPR newsroom, he claimed that every single one of them is registered as a Democrat. 

Berliner further expressed that “an open-minded spirit no longer exists within NPR,” which is “devastating both for its journalism and its business model.”

Fox News host Juan Williams spoke out about these claims on The Ingraham Angle

He reflected on his experience working for NPR before the news outlet fired him for making allegedly “Islamophobic comments.” 

“I don’t think I’m any wild-eyed conservative, but they thought I was too conservative a black guy for their kind of company,” he said. “Not only did they fire me — they called me a psycho. I mean, they said horrible things about me quite publicly. So, no, it doesn’t surprise me what [Berliner] had to say.”

“They are very much an insulated cadre of people who think they’re right, and they have a hard time with people who are different.  Yet they threw me out the door, so this doesn’t surprise me at all,” he continued, before adding that “I think what you’re seeing now, especially after Trump, is that we live in a very polarized media landscape, and they have established a beachhead on the far-Left.”

Fox News has since reached out to NPR about this damning essay, which resulted in officials pointing to a recent staff memo issued by NPR editor-in-chief Edith Chapin.

The memo in part said that “we’re proud to stand behind the exceptional work that our desks and shows do to cover a wide range of challenging stories. We believe that inclusion — among our staff, with our sourcing, and in our overall coverage — is critical to telling the nuanced stories of this country and our world.”

Americans have turned on the mainstream media as they become more partisan

As the mainstream media becomes increasingly biased, more Americans have turned to podcasts and other forms of media. 

As a result, newsrooms around the country have seen more and more people turn away from traditional news sources like public radio and newspapers. 

However, NPR’s statement showed that many of these media officials see no problem in how they conduct business, which indicates no changes will be made anytime soon.
