The Left will probably consider Juan Williams remarks today on Fox as evidence that he does need a psychiatrist. He was asked about the resignation of Ellen Weiss, the NPR executive who fired Williams over voicing his concerns seeing Muslims on airplanes. It [NPR] has become very ingrown if not incestuous in terms of their perspective. She had executioners knife for anybody who didnt abide by her way of thinking.
I think she represented an ingrown culture in that institution thats not open to not only different ways of thinking, but angry at the fact that I would even talk or be on Fox, angry at the fact that people have different perspectives and a conservative perspective might emerge on Fox or NPR. To my mind this is good news for NPR and people who care about news in America.
Im telling you is they have a culture there that is not open to real news. Its not open to all points of view. Its not open to the real world around it and the many different dynamics and perspectives and stories that animate the news in America.
If they want to be Pravda, if they want to be issue propaganda
fine. I think everybody knows the real story here. The real story is you cant go around treating people like trash and pretending that anybody who has a different point of view is illegitimate.
He is a stone nut. I always mute him.
Juan is Fox’s token black racist.
Actually The Science channel hasn’t gone for the stupid stuff. That’s mostly The Learning Channel which is populated with ghosts, aliens, and all manner of other worthless fluff. Science still manages to have pretty good standards.
Discovery used to be more science focused, but now seems rather fixated on reality work shows (Deadliest Catch, Ice Road Truckers, etc) and some of the ghost nonsense.
History also has managed to stick to mostly good stuff.
‘Day drop-a two bomb’.
Even their "do-it-yourself" shows like This Old House and Ask This Old House push those curly-Q compact fluorescent light bulbs like they're the saving grace.
Never said it did.
