Old, Slow, Boring Dude
NPR fired him because the Council for American-Islamic Relations basically threatened them.HydroAuto said:So, Williams works for Fox as a left of center voice, his material hasn't been censored by Fox, and Fox has never raised an objection to anything Williams has said or written in other media. Fox is a private, for profit outfit.
NPR employs Williams as a voice of the center left, though this is harder to discern because of the lack of diversity at NPR. NPR fires him, not for behavior on NPR, but because they do not agree with the content of a comment he made elsewhere. NPR is funded in part by the government.
Well put, Teeter. Even someone as moderate left-leaning is Williams is now, he was fired. Incredible.Teeter said:Like the French Revolution . . . they're now sending their own to the guillotine. This is probably a wonderful reminder to the electorate how tolerant our 'betters' are . . .
The latest project: Funding The Huffington Post Investigative Fund to, quote, "create one of the largest investigative newsrooms in the country." http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,601972,00.html
In fact, The New York Times doesnâ€™t even mention the left-wing ideology of the foundation that is supplying $1.8 million to NPR so it can hire political reporters across the country.
The left-wing Open Society Foundations is donating the large sum to NPR for a project being called â€œImpact of Government.â€ The project is planning to add at least 100 reporters across the country to cover local state house politics to fill the holes left by the firing of so many local reporters due to the contraction in the field of journalism over the last decade. http://bigjournalism.com/wthuston/2...-millions-buying-political-reporters-for-npr/
