NPR fires analyst for Islampohopic statement

” (Insert media outlet here) fires analyst for Islamophobic statement”
Now there is a headline you don’t see everyday. I want to commend the people at NPR who made this decision to terminate the contract of Juan Williams. This was bound to happen sooner or later with his track record of appearances on Faux News. Media Matters asked last year about Williams’ violation of NPR Code of Ethics. There are far too many “journalists” (if you can call some of these people that) who are trying to make a career from spreading Islamophobia.

While appearing on Bill O’Reilly’s show, Williams said,

“Look, Bill, I’m not a bigot. You know the kind of books I’ve written about the civil rights movement in this country. But when I get on the plane, I got to tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they are identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried. I get nervous.”

 Does Juan Williams also wonder if any of his fellow Latinos on those airplanes are smuggling drugs or illegal immigrants with false documentation? O’Reilly of course has never been shy about his hatred of Muslims. By now everyone has seen his remarks with Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg on “The View”.

Faux News has been rolling out the full court press in O’Reilly’s defense.

O’Reilly’s own defense of his comments have been quiet stupid. Media Matters has good article pointing the major flaws in his thinking.

Once again I want to thank NPR for making the right call here.

Bill O’Reilly interviews Jon Stewart

If you haven’t heard yet Jon Stewart returned to Fox “News” tonight. He taped an interview for Bill O’Reilly’s show. Part 1 of the interview aired today and at times looked heavily edited like everything else on Fox. As usual Jon Stewart went into the lion’s den and did take his shots against the entire network. Check it out.

Howard Kurtz of CNN and Washing Post is reporting that Fox will have the full unedited interview on their website tomorrow.

Glenn Beck wants to be set on fire

Just watch this clip first and I’ll continue after that.

How do advertisers let this crap get on the air? Are you kidding me? This is what works for the psychos on the right? This is what people are watching? Am I awake here? This guy is insane. It’s a sad state of affairs when Bill O’Reilly is left as the “sane” voice on Fox News. Scary…I know.

Someone send Beck to an institution…..and fast….for his own sake. Really Beck, you want President Obama to set you on fire? “We want common sense”….your words here Beck….How about you exercise some of that yourself. President Obama is disenfranchising people? Really? Why doesn’t Beck come out and say something about the mockery the Republicans are making of an election result in Minnesota. Why don’t I hear Beck complaining about the Alaska GOP wanting a redo on the Senate elections? Why are the psychos on the right complaining about “Obama’s bow” when there are plenty of pictures and videos Bush was literally hands in hand with the Saudi King (google it)?

Once again…let me just say it again….how do advertisers let this crap get on the air? Come on Ruport…..pull this crap off the air.

Scarborough: “Fake News Versus FOX News”

Scarborough: “Fake News Versus FOX News”

Last night Scarborough covered the little feud going on between Fox and Comedy Central (for those late comers to the party you can see part one here and part two here).

Video – WMV Video – QT

Scarborough seems to think that Stewart gets a free pass because he is left of center. Anyone who watches TDS knows that Stewart will take the opportunity to point out mistakes made by any politician, right or left. It just so happens that we have a government totally controlled by the right and they happen to make very easy targets right now.

Joe Scarborough
From MSNBC

MSNBC host Joe Scarborough asks whether Bill O’Reilly has a point when he argues that Jon Stewart isn’t really running a “fake news” show. (great clips included)

As a primer:

  • Jon Stewart’s first appearance on “The O’Reilly Factor”
  • Bill O’Reilly’s subsequent appearance on “The Daily Show”
