    lay into Michael Moore in addition to Juan Williams.

    Many of these people who are so so scared of the scary scary Muslim people only talk to Muslim people in the fantasyscape of Teevee and in their own minds. I guess that is what the CEO of NPR was referring to when she suggested that Williams comments should be directed to his psychiatrist.

    This entire incident also has great meaning for the MediaElite Bubble. Those who work in TeeVee become surrounded by the context of TeeVee.. the cameras, airplanes, talking heads, makeup aritsts, corporate shills and perks, the echo chamber writ large. I think Williams started out as a pretty good reporter and analyst, but the corrosive effect of decades of BubbleLife has warped his judgment. I think an intervention is needed, and he should take some time off, go on a nationwide tour, worldwide would be better, on his bike and in his car and get to know the people whom he is commenting on.

    And come on. If you sign on to NPR with the understanding that you are a REPORTER, not a screaming talk show host, then you have to expect that at some time, you will be called out. He was. No surprise. Take it like a man, Juan.
