NPR turns down President Bush interview

Posted at 8:24 AM on September 26, 2007 by Bill Wareham (2 Comments)

The short version: Interview opportunity offered specifically to Juan Williams and NPR brass didn't want White House cherry-picking interviewer. More from Washington Post.

I am surprised that NPR lost this opportunity. Does the network have so little faith in its own journalists that it gives Fox News, of all things, access to the president that NPR could have had in order to maintain control?

Williams gave an almost hagiographic interview of the President the last time he did it for NPR.
