Don't miss this. He is a changed, energised man who is going to develop into a sound conservative like so many before.

His demeanor tonight was unlike I have ever seen him, and all to the good.

The good thing about Juan is that he knows where the bodies are buried. Start talking, Juan.

I think it is a little too early for that pronouncement, but who knows to what a Damascus-like moment can lead.

Juan is now the liberal who's been mugged. We shall observe the metamorphosis.

Disgust is a great motivator...That’s it, never again, I’m not going to take it anymore....here’s hoping Juan has crossed that threshold and will never look back.

I’ve never seen Juan like this before. He really broke it off in NPR’s backside.

it’s much too soon to hope he will have such a comprehensive development of his views in a conservative direction, but it’s always good to see another liberal learn about the dark heart of leftist thuggery

He has always been a principled man, whether you agree or disagree with what he as to say. He never merely parroted the Leftie line and he wasn’t nasty. He is extremely intelligent, so it is no surprise he has been moving slowly toward the right, and has had interesting things to say on the way. Now he is the classic Liberal who has been brutally mugged, and mugged in this case by those he thought were his friends and allies. So yes, I believe his eyes have been opened wide and he is on the path to being a sound conservative, and God bless him. The one I feel sorry for at this point is Mara Liasson.

Whether he changes his views or not, he will be a more influential voice, and a person I respect. It’s about freedom of exppression not about an echo chamber.

Look, I hate to say this, but it is about time that Black folks in this country threw off the enslaving yolk of the Democrat Party and liberalism!!! Maybe they will wise up and really begin to believe they are truly Americans with many diversified veiwpoints and outlooks!!! They can start by supporting and voting into office the many Black Americans that are running for office as conservatives!!! Loyalty to Obama, the Democrat Party, the NAACP and the CBC has only lowered them in self esteem and to the bottom rung of the economic/oppportunity totem pole. Get with the program, Black folks!!! The attempted destruction of Juan Williams should wake you up to the reality of the Black man being used and abused by the liberal elite vermin!!! Time to assimilate into American society, not as Black people, but as American people!!!

Mara Liasson should quit in protest of the scumbags of NPR, with a thorough repudiation of their contempt for elementary ethics, freedom, and American ideals

if she remains affiliated with that cesspool then I have no sympathy for her at all

I agree. His objectivity, willingness to genuinely consider alternative viewpoints and respect for those with whom he disagrees are all I expect. That is why I like Charles Krauthamer.

I always thought he displayed flashes of sanity.

Usually he would rub me wrong, but he did show some insight on occasion that made me like him.

I have had some good friends in my life who were screwed up politically, but ultimately I think I liked them because they still had a vestigial sense of right and wrong (we know from whence that derives) and there was hope for them.

Juan to NPR President CEO Schiller:

"Have you no shame, ma'am? You and your far left wing mob fired me. Wasn't that enough for you? Do you have to try to assassinate my character, too?"

Juan was ALL FIRED UP!

I liked the old Juan. I love the new JUAN!

I always liked him across the table from Hume. He seemed a decent fellow trying to tap dance and sell rotten pudding.

But now Juan is all wee weed up! He now believes in what he is peddling. He believes it in his heart! It shows...

Congratulations Juan!

Soros' "Media Matters" already has her in their cross-hairs:

Specifically, NPR's Mara Liasson and her long-running association with Fox News has often raised questions. This might be the proper time for NPR to finally address that thorny issue.

What about Mara Liasson?

“”Have you no shame, ma’am? You and your far left wing mob fired me. Wasn’t that enough for you? Do you have to try to assassinate my character, too?”

Maybe the next time he hears Christine O’Donnell called a “witch,” or tea party members “dangerous radicals” by the same folks that screwed HIM over he’ll begin to realize the extent of their lies and motivations.

Let’s hope. I agree with many here... I’ve disagreed with him politically over the years, but he never struck me as a bad person.

She probably has a family, a mortgage and a lot of other obligations. Perhaps she can’t afford to quit on principle until someone offers her another job. She is a good reporter, it shouldn’t be too hard to find another job, and she looks good on TV. I will give her the benefit of the doubt.

The education of Mr. Williams. It’s a wonderful thing to see a mind begin to open.

I hope he really gets it and comes over to our side. The worse thing I can thing that could come out of this would be for Juan Williams to wind up as sort of a “liberal” equivalent of “conservative” David Brooks - as every conservative talk show host’s favorite lib.

I'll agree with you, he's still a worthless liberal, until he proves otherwise.

He's made his fortune, however much that may be, by being a liberal, if he wants to be conservative now, I'll welcome that change.

We will see.

It’ll be interesting to see what his tone becomes. At times, he’s looked pained with having to project the liberal “fair and balanced” position. They were not his finest moments and seemed contrived.

Maybe they’ll get another Libtard to be the Leftie voice(and please don’t let it be Airhead Kristen Powers).

One thing is for certain, Juanie needs to pony up for a new suit that fits now that he’s gotten a raise.

I would not be surprised if a number of “old style” dems see Jaun’s kick down as their re-affirmation that their democrat party is no more and the democrat party has been stolen from them by the likes of soros and the ultra libs. Who knows this may be a new watershed for anti-dem votes on 2 Nov. When a tsunami hits it ain’t just one wave.

Here’s a comment by a lib posted on MEDIAMATTERS:

“People like Liasson provide cover for the more fringe elements that are represented at Fox ‘news.’ They allow for the extremists to peddle their conspiracies right along side more factual information. By Liasson being on Fox, and not challenging their Right Wing propaganda, she allows for false equivalences to be made between competing beliefs. She legitimizes blatant lies, and apologizes for hate speech, through her regular, tacit aproval of the network’s talking points. And I stand by my Charles Krauthammer remark. Whatever of a journalist he may, at one time, have been- He is a shill for the GOP and Fox now, and for quite some time”.

I wouldn't think he'd go that far, at least not for a while if not ever. But hopefully he will take the opportunity to reexamine his beliefs in the context of what happened to him.

He also should be made aware of how many on Fox and on this forum have wished him well notwithstanding his longstanding support of liberals and liberalism. Most of us can separate the man from his views unlike those on the left who can not distinguish them and practice character assassination on those with whom they disagree.
