at the suggestion of DougJ at Balloon-juice.com
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: http://mediamatters.org/...
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.
