Juan Williams was quick to accept a few million bucks from Roger Ailes and jump to Fox News after NPR gave him the boot. He then went on a non-stop NPR-bashing tour, accusing the radio network of being “elitist and white.”
Williams is singing a different tune these days, according to Capital New York’s Glynnis MacNicol. She writes:
Fox News political analyst Juan Williams misses working for NPR “big time.”
“Because that’s such an informed and influential audience,” he told me last night at the swanky Industria Studios, a big loft and event space in the far West Village. “And the thing is that audience really liked me and I would often times help raise money for NPR.”
I asked NPR’s PR department if they wanted to comment on Williams’ remarks. “Thanks for the opportunity to but we’ll pass,” a spokesman said.
