Was He “Muzzled?” Juan Williams One Year Later [via KUT]
Apparently, Juan Williams is going to be at the Texas Book Festival this weekend. I might have to make the trek up to Austin, if only for the lulz.

NPR Ombudsman: On Murdoch and Liberal Bias at NPR
The story is the ongoing phone-tapping and bribery scandal battering  Rupert Murdoch and his media conglomerate, News Corp.  Investigations,  suits and shareholder revolt are growing here and in Britain.  But the  many accusations of liberal bias in NPR’s coverage prove, at least in  this case, to be more perception than reality.  They may also be  politically motivated.

Juan Williams Is Now a Clown

"I think it is good news for NPR if they can get someone who I think has been the keeper of a flame of liberal orthodox out of NPR…I think she represented a very ingrown, incestuous culture in that institution that’s not open to not only different ways of thinking but angry at the fact that I would even talk or be on FOX…to my mind, this is good news for NPR for people who care about news in America."

Fox News Chief Blasts NPR 'Nazis'

Daily Beast:

“They are, of course, Nazis. They have a kind of Nazi attitude. They are the left wing of Nazism. These guys don’t want any other point of view. They don’t even feel guilty using tax dollars to spout their propaganda. They are basically Air America with government funding to keep…

*sigh

I think our large Jewish audience in our market would beg to differ.

From the Gawker Comments…

  • The irony: Far Right wing “nutbars” so pissed about Williams being fired about being afraid of Muslims bombing a plane that they send a bomb themselves.
  • People who have threatened lives at NPR scorecard:
    Crackers - 1 
    Muslims - 0
  • I must admit … when I see someone wearing a Powdermilk Biscuit T-Shirt get on a plane … I am a little afraid …

Why NPR Matters

"NPR, whatever its failings, is one of the few current inheritors of the tradition of the ambitious, first-rate news organization… In their current anti-NPR initiative, Fox and the Republicans would like to suggest that the main way NPR differs from Fox is that most NPR employees vote Democratic. That is a difference, but the real difference is what they are trying to do. NPR shows are built around gathering and analyzing the news, rather than using it as a springboard for opinions. And while of course the selection of stories and analysts is subjective and can show a bias, in a serious news organization the bias is something to be worked against rather than embraced. NPR, like the New York Times, has an ombudsman. Does Fox? [I think the answer is No.]”
