NPR executive who fired Juan Williams resigns

Ellen Weiss, the National Public Radio executive who fired Juan Williams for remarks he made on Fox News about his feelings toward some Muslims, resigned Thursday following an internal investigation of the way Williams' dismissal was handled.

Vivian Schiller, the CEO and president of NPR, was also cited by the investigating panel for her handling of the matter. As a result, Schiller will not receive a bonus for 2010.

Here is Williams' reaction Thursday to news of the resignation, with him calling Weiss "the keeper of the flame of liberal orthodoxy at NPR."

I did an extended sitdown interview with Williams a few nights after the firing. You can read that here.
