at the suggestion of DougJ at

I’m not giving those fuckers a dime until they can Juan WIlliams. I suggest you all follow my example. I realize that this lapses into boycott territory, but honestly, why should anyone pay for what we can get for free on Fox?

Why? Because i do not listen to NPR, which has largely good programming, for FOX NEWS's Juan Williams' spin and lies:

Williams brings Fox spin to NPR, says passing a Democrats-only health bill is "literally what would be called a nuclear option"

From the August 22 broadcast of NPR's Weekend Edition Saturday:

Hey Williams, when you get your head out of your bottom and smell the roses, you might find out the GOP has been obstructing since 7:51 PM PST Nov 4 2008. that is their strategy along with hurling accusations of naziism and sociallism ( communism ) Although veiled, it manifests itself in lunatics bringing weapons to presidential events. Who is the anarchist vs real americans.

Also, NPR has slowly been catering to a new audience. I was listening to an NPR broadcast about healthcare reform about three weeks ago. The guests they brought to discuss to disguss the topic; one hack from the Cato institute, and another hack from the Cato institute. A very illuminating discussion ensued, of course.

Juan Williams is a disgrace, and the patsies at NPR are too cowardly to get rid of him. A self-respecting news organization should establish a "no consorting with FOX" policy. Precious little self-respect in journalism today.

Lastly, here's the link to the segment on NPR:
If only the liberal NPR would put on two Ayn Rand institute "scholars", then they'd be Fair And Balanced.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
