Juan Williams talked to Bill O'Reilly about his favorite subject on Monday's "O'Reilly Factor": the awfulness of NPR.

Speaking with Bill O'Reilly about his new book "Muzzled: The Assault on Honest Debate,” Williams criticized NPR for stifling free speech. Williams, who was fired from NPR after making controversial comments about Muslims, said that the media overly is protective of Islam.

"They would label you as a bad guy for saying, you know what, there are extremists in the Muslim community who pose a worldwide threat," he said.

Williams said that he had been "emotionally screwed up" and "hurt" by the scandal. When O'Reilly asked what NPR's problem was with him, Williams jokingly responded, "I guess they don't like you. And guess what—they don't like me." He said that he felt like NPR thought he was "legitimizing the devil" by appearing on Fox News.
