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 executioner’s knife for anybody who didn’t abide by her way of thinking. I think she represented an ingrown culture in that institution that’s not open to not only different ways of thinking, but angry at the fact that Ii 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.
I’m telling you is they have a culture there that is not open to real news. It’s not open to all points of view. It’s 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 can’t go around treating people like trash and pretending that anybody who has a different point of view is illegitimate.
