    Do you ever listen to NPR?

    Let's dissect this steaming pile of shit, that projectile-diarrhea discharge from Williams' own lying, phony mouth:

    This is evidence of one-party rule

    What party? What "rule"? Are you - and Williams - implying Democratic "rule"? In what way? Endorsement of Democratic candidates by the news division?


    Hiring based on party affiliation?


    Fail #1.

    ...and one sided thinking at NPR

    What "one side" would that be? The Brookings Institution side? Wait...there are more American Enterprise Institute representatives on NPR shows than there are Brookings Institution representatives.

    The "anti-war" side?

    Wait...NPR's news division has provided probably more pure coverage of the recent American war involvements than any other news organization. They report. Period. I remember listening to Anne Garrels' live coverage of the very first bomb of Rummy's and B**h's "Shock and Awe" terrorist attack invasion, with "just the facts, Ma'am".

    The "Obama" side?

    I hear more coverage of Teabaggers, more interviews with righting Republicans, more reporting on the minority party on NPR member stations than I hear on any other legitimate news outlet.

    Fail #2.

    that leads to enforced ideology, speech and writing.

    Well, gee, Juan baby, do you call enforcing a strict journalistic code of ethics "enforced ideology"? If so, I'll take that sort of "enforcement" from my preferred news source any day.

    Want some "news", Juan-baby? Here's some "news": when a moneygrubbing hack like you spends more and more time in Shout 'n Pout kindergarten classrooms like O'Lielly's "show", and begins to sound more and more like O'Lielly himself, and eventually demonstrates a complete Stockholm Syndrome metamorphosis, that moneygrubbing hack really has forfeited any and all rights to call himself a "news analyst".

    If your job at NPR, Juan-baby, was "news analyst", you were unfit for the job, dude. Your employer should have fired you months ago.

    Fail #3.

    It leads to people, especially journalists, being sent to the gulag for raising the wrong questions

    "The gulag", Juan-baby? That would be the gulag of $2 million salaries, no journalistic credentials required? That would be the gulag where there is no code of ethics, because "ethics" and "Fox" cannot coexist in the same sentence, and neither can "journalist" and "Fox"?

    "Wrong questions"? In case you forgot, little Juannie, you were supposed to be a newsman at NPR. A newsman, little Juannie, asks questions and reports the answers. A newsman doesn't vomit forth his opinions and call that emesis "raising questions". A newsman doesn't participate in the kindergarten sandbox venue of Fox and O'Lielly, screeching in an effort to outscreech others on the set.

    What would you know about being a "journalist" anyway, L'il Juannie?

    Fail #4.

    and displaying independence of thought.

    Really, dude, if you're a journalist, we're not really interested in your "independence of thought", we're just interested in your reporting of the facts. You see, Juan-Fail, you've spent way too much time around the likes of O'Lielly and Beck, so much time that you actually believe that what they do constitutes "thinking".

    It doesn't.

    It constitutes "lying".

    And "independence"?

    What journalists mean by "independence", Loser Juan, is "lack of any personal bias in reporting". They do not mean "independence from facts". You've completely wandered away from that distinction.

    You are not a "journalist".

    You have no place in a reputable news organization like NPR.

    Fail #5.

    Total fail at life, Juannie-baby. Go pout for somebody else. You are such a transparent fraud, baby, that it is painfully obvious that all you've wanted for a long time was to be freed from the shackles of responsible journalism so that you could pocket Murdoch's big steaming piles of money and rant and screech with the rest of 'em.

    Welcome home, FoxJuan. Now stop whining, shut up, and just go away.

      I thought Juan Williams being shown the door for his comment about being afraid of Muslims on the plane was a raw deal, but I thought he should have been shown the door long ago for being painfully shallow and uninteresting as an analyst. Journalist? Really?

      The person who defines reality wins.
