Juan Williams: Liberal media Will ‘Shut U Down, Stab U Kill U, Fire you’ If U Disagree [VIDEO]
Daily Caller ^ | February | Grae Stafford

Posted on 02/24/2013 3:45:15 AM PST by lbryce

Fox News political analyst and “Special Report” panelist Juan Williams said in an interview with The Daily Caller’s Ginni Thomas that mainstream media outlets “stab” and “kill” dissenting voices.

Williams was fired from National Public Radio in 2010 after saying he sometimes gets “nervous” when seated on an airplane with Muslims, while making a broader point about the importance of religious tolerance.

“I always thought it was the Archie Bunkers of the world, the right wingers of world, who were more resistant and more closed-minded about hearing the other side,” he said. “In fact, what I have learned is, in a very painful way — and I can open this shirt and show you the scars and the knife wounds — is that it is big media institutions who are identifiably more liberal to left-leaning who will shut you down, stab you and kill you, fire you, if they perceive that you are not telling the story in the way that they want it told.”

Catch the rest of the Ginni Thomas’s interview with Juan Williams this week exclusively on The Daily Caller.

Yeah...there’s not even a pretense of objectivity. They used to (15 years ago) at least run stories that showed Democrats in a bad light...even if the party affiliation was never mentioned. Not anymore.

It’s “get the GOP” all the time now. And it’s not just the “news” programs. The morning shows are operated by Dems and ex-Clinton and Obama appointees. The Talk Shows on Sunday are all stacked against the Republicans. Basic questions of Democratic guests (like...what’s the deal with the 16 trillion dollar debt)are NEVER asked.

The entire “news” operation is set up to get low information voters to support Odumbo.

Precisely.

He had me convinced a few years ago with what happened to him at National People’s Radio. But I’ve been watching what he has been saying for the last two years or so.

Undeniably true. But while I once thought that it was a raw deal, I don’t any longer. Let me explain and I welcome anyone who can prove this wrong to do so....

The GOP has a full compliment of media experts but it does not take an expert to see what the MSM/Libs are doing. Yet in spite of that, the GOP pols continue to knowingly go on these shows, talk to these media outlets. And they know what the end result will be.

Palin proved beyond argument that one person with name recognition can use the net/Facebook/Twitter/YouTube to totally and completely bypass the MSM. Reagan knew that taking his unfiltered message directly to the people was the way to make things happen.

The ‘experts’ in the GOP know this as well. They would have to be totally incompetent to ‘not’ know it because as experts, it is their job to know it. The politicians themselves are not blind to the fact that Palin runs circles around the MSM spin with a Facebook page either. They see that every post she makes gets a full court press from the MSM to craft a narrative that what she said id anything but true.

Now I am only using Palin as an example here because she is the only one doing it, not because I am a fan/supporter...nor do I want to turn this into a flamewar over her. It’s what she does that the GOP completely avoids that is the problem.

If the GOP used the tools in the box, they too could bypass the MSM just as easily. They are big names and they actually hold official office. They have access to the same kind of people that work on her web and media endeavors.

But knowing and having all that knowledge and far more access to $$$$ to make it happen via fundraising and GOP coffers, They don’t. And it’s not just ‘don’t’, they flat refuse to.

Now if anyone can logically explain why that is without coming to the conclusion, supported by the facts on the ground, that the GOP intends to sabotage itself and it’s remaining supporters/move the political pendulum further left in the process, I really want to hear it.

The Watergate Theory of the MSM:

Pre-Watergate the media was ant-conservative but kept it under the radar most of the time. Walter Cronkite throwing in the towel on Vietnam being an example of blatant left wing propaganda coming out. Watergate changed everything. Post Watergate the media became hostile and anti government as long as that government was conservative or republican. They became an open left wing propaganda machine and will NOT touch a democrat regime, actually they will PROTECT it.

Speak to any former employee of your local paper or TV station. The same dynamic plays out there with local pols/’celebrities’.

The media is and has long been like any other wing of the Dems. Self serving, power hungry and agenda driven. The only way to break the cycle is the Dems have to move right. And you KNOW that ain’t happening.

Media outlets will run themselves bankrupt before giving up the agenda. How is that self serving when many reporters end up unemployed?

1: Most reporters are told and believe it’s for the greater good of liberalism.
2: The owners do not lose personal money. But they gain power for the sacrifice. And are usually promoted to some political position.

And since it’s the shareholders taking the financial hit, no biggie.

I worked in media. That’s the way the game is played.

Juan is the “token” raving liberal on Fox that is used to balance the scale of “fair and balanced news” spouted by FOX.

FOX saved money by hiring him because one Juan equals 25 raving liberals and that means that FOX only pays a single liberal employee, not 25 more.

I am beginning to agree with you...not even GOP politicians could be so stupid. Why do they continue to play the Dem/media game??? As the Dem/media complex sets the agenda, provides the questions and often interprets GOP answers in ways that work to only enhance the Democratic narrative. So, why do they do it?

Last year only Gingrich called out some of the MSM questioners. Why didn’t Romney???

I can only explain it in terms of our one party system...with two wings. It’s as though the Republicans really want the Obama agenda to go through. I became suspicious when Roberts became the fifth vote for Obamacare. Clearly it’s an unconstitutional use of the commerce clause...yet Roberts twisted the government’s argument away from the commerce clause to the taxing power in order to find it constitutional.

It’s as though the fix is in.

When I see Juan Williams on my TV, I change the channels. Same as I do with Bob Beckel and a couple or three other Broncho Bamma shills.
Funny thing though, I sure do not watch Fox News very often any more. My old Dell in the shop is a lot more honest.

The facts lead to only one conclusion. Anything else is just an excuse people make because they cannot accept that their leaders would do that to them.

Well, they did. And they do.

The simplest way to look at this is as follows.

If you were reading this stuff in a sci-fi novel or whatever, and there were the ‘Orange buzzards’ and Purple snarfblats, doing this, not the people who actually govern your lives, what conclusion would you draw?

So why try to avoid the same answer in reality?

Mark Levin has been pushing a similar theme this week: that the GOP-e wants socialism.

Until now, I had assumed that they were cowardly fools and useful idiots. My opinion is changing.

Down with the Rovebots.

Juan Williams is feinting to the right. Trying to show he is not an out and out Obama-Bot. I see this fool on Fox and need to mute him immediately or change channels. I am not going to torture myself listening to his idiot lib opinions and analysis

He is far too visible now on Fox...since Obama won Fox wants more black talking heads on. Thee are some palatable libs on Fox but he isn’t one.

A lot of us have been saying it for a while and have taken 8 ways of hell for it. Annoying as that is, I fully understand WHY people don’t want to believe it and only now, when the daily proof gets stronger and stronger, are they open to it.

Is it too late? Dunno. Will people STILL defend the GOP here on FR and trash people saying what we do? No question. But the facts don’t change.

I agree with Levin probably 95% of the time (Romney was a BIG NO) and though I rarely listen to his show (I read occasional transcripts), I think he’s dead right for saying so here.

I just hope people stop their reactionary defense, because the time to accept anything the GOP spouts at face value is long gone. They made choices and those choices destroyed trust.

Well....not the only one. There’s ready-for-burial Alan Colmes, “Bob the Beefy Boor” Beckel, Kirsten Powers (yeah maybe not so much), several liberal talk show chicks e.g. Eleanor Ratner, Marc Lamont (Stokely Rap Brown) Hill, all ready to denounce Obama critics as racists & demand that they turn in all their guns.

Fox will just have to do for now.

We’re will have to build an entire conservative alternative media from the ground up. Just like Breitbart did.

Real reporting on real news to establish credibility. Not opinions only - that stuff is a dime a dozen.

Juan got such a stab in the back from the liberals at PBS and it was Fox News that gave him a job and people like Bill O’Reilly supported him. However Juan keeps drinking the liberal kool-aid and supports the very people and their ilk who stabbed him in the back.

Yes and no. Yes in that we need forums to get our message out, but no in that rebuilding what exists (the msm) results in the MSM again. Just a matter of time.

The MSM model is headed toward extinction by it’s own hand. They did not adapt to a world with an internet in it. All their eggs are in one basket...the old model of ‘news’.

FR and many sites like the BIGS prove there is no need for that model and that in fact, it is a destructive model.

Side note on the opinion thing. At our paper, I worked with an old Ed that thought the AP was the Vatican. They could do no wrong and opinion was NEVER allowed in an AP story. We argued endlessly about it and he denied ever example I would show him on the feed.

The day we got the memo that henceforth, the AP was totally fine with combining opinion with hard news, it was like someone told him he was adopted and his adoptive parents killed his puppy with a sledgehammer.

He never got over it.

My point is that if someone who aspires to be a citizen journalist concentrates on opinion only, then few will read it. It’s hard to differentiate oneself, at least as far as us conservatives.

But hard news is another matter. There’s an entire spectrum of news left uncovered.

Locally, its all the brother-in-law deals the county commission hands out. The local weekly won’t touch those stories, because it might upset the folks who dispense the legal advertising. And that legal advertising is the ONLY thing that keeps most weekly papers afloat.

Statewide, there’s the rot of the teacher’s union that metro newspapers won’t cover.

Once the citizen journalist builds himself some credibility by actually scooping the “real” media, then a little opinion is taken seriously by the readers.

To be more specific, no one but the author makes money off a Facebook or Twitter post - except through second hand reposting. That cuts all the "consultants" and "experts" out of the loop thereby endangering their livelihood. Think how much money Karl Rove made during the last election cycle giving his "expert" advice while he wasn't running for anything himself. As always, follow the money.

I don't understand why any network would pay someone to just sit there and disagree
and lie "yes flauntingly lie" about anything positive about another political party.

And doing so by using 1% of fact mixed in with 99% disinformation then calling it truth.

Juan is a propagandist and imo not worthy of any title of the past such as journalist which used to
actually mean something to media personalities. Kisten Powers used to be
like juan but now looks at the Truth and failry discerns the politics as any
media talking head should.
