In case you hadn’t heard already, Juan Williams (an opinion giver on npr – National Public Radio) was fired, supposedly, for making honest comments about what he feels when he sees Muslims on an airplane.
Many people think it had more to do with the fact that he said it while on the hated Fox News. npr basically claims that it had more to do with the fact that their employees are not allowed to have their own opinions, or at least share them on the air.
It seems more likely that they CAN have opinions, but only if they are left leaning opinions. There are many instances of “reporters” on npr spouting their opinions. Specifically, one “reporter” wishing that a certain Republican (or his grandchildren) would contract AIDS.
It’s a little annoying to me that npr is funded with tax money from my paychecks. It’s a little more disconcerting that the lefties (in love with the ever increasing control that government exerts over our lives) have their own radio propaganda arm. What scares me most is that so many people I interact with on a daily basis listen to npr and can’t hear their bias.
Maybe the Juan Williams incident will wake them up.
