After he commented on The O’Reilly Factor in 2009, “Michelle Obama, you know, she’s got this Stokely Carmichael in a designer dress thing going,” NPR President and CEO Vivian Schiller ordered Fox News to stop referring to him as an NPR broadcaster. NPR terminated his contract on Wednesday, October 20, 2010, two days after he made anti-Muslim remarks.
