NPR asks Juan Williams not to say he works for NPR when on Fox News

This is outrageous. NPR, due to listener pressure, has asked Juan Williams not to identify himself as working for NPR when he appears on Fox News.

NPR is funded by the federal government. NPR doesn't belong to the liberals who are its primary audience, and certainly not to the totalitarian "liberals" who have pulled this off.

This seems a pretty clear violation of the First Amendment guarantees of freedom of speech and press. Let's see if we hear a peep from our self-anointed guardians of civil liberties, the ACLU.
