What Juan Williams Said...

...that got him fired.

We didn't hear this live, but according to industry publication Radio Ink Magazine, Williams said the following on The O'Reilly Factor:
"When I get on the plane ... if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they are identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried. I get nervous."
I wonder if Williams got worried and nervous as soon as those words left his mouth, thinking he might get fired for uttering them.

For an insider's view of the Juan Williams firing, here's some insight from one of our local NPR guys, Colin McEnroe.

What's your take on the situation? Is this one radio voice that shouldn't have been kicked off the air so abruptly?
