Question: Why are Bill O'Reilly and the rest of the FOX Noise blonde blue-eyed blonde morons still employed?
DOUBLE STANDARD, that's why!
White bigots can get away with spewing their racist bilge on these republican Tea party so-called networks like FOX, with impunity!
This is becuase FOX is owned by bigot Rupert Murdoch! He not only allows these racists free reign, but encourages them to spew their hatful divisive racist bilge!
What a clueless imbecile! You are the one who sounds like a true racist! The reason Juan was fired was because the Liberal minded individuals that run NPR did not want to hear Juan’s opinion. They were out to silence what he had to say. It had nothing to do with race. As for Fox’s blonde “blue-eyed blondes” as your racist remarks indicate, have not been fire because they are the TOP RANKING shows in America! It is simple supply and demand. Which is something that your pea brain will not comprehend nor will your bigotry overcome.

You guys have got to be kidding me! Let's not forget Timothy McVeigh was the single most deadliest terorist before 911. A good Christian man who served in our military. That doesn't make all Christians terrorists. I know many, many Muslims who are peace-loving, tax paying, US citizens. Juan's comments allow more and more people to justify thinking exactly the way you guys do. Now go listen to Rush and Bill so you know what to parrot tomorrow, and have a great day.
Former, McVeigh was a lone nutcase, and didn't commit his crime in the name of Christianity, or of any religion. The Muslim terrorists do,and they are supported by the leaders of that so-called religion. I have heard Imam after Imam support suicide bombing and call for the destruction of the west. Did you hear any Baptist preachers speak up for McVeigh? No.

Fox has hired Juan Williams for a 3 million $ contract as soon as he was fired from NPR. That will only enhance their ratings. It's amazing how you can be fair and balanced, tell the truth, and hire beautiful "blue eyed blondes" and the left wing idiots still hate you. They have the best ratings for a reason, and the reason is not because they are lying to the American public. They're exposing the haters and the haters hate them.

Juan Williams should not have been fired. BUT all this talk about the First Amendment is just stupid. His rights were not violated. Sarah Palin is still learning what the First Amendment is, hence her recent twitter post.

Lets see if I have this right Muslims attack our embassies, then they set of a bomb in the world trade center, then they attack the USS Cole, there are various attacks by Muslims all over the world in the name of there god. Then 3 airplanes are flown into some buildings in the United States by Muslims a 4th is flown into the ground with all passengers aboard. A man shouting Allah Akbar kills a bunch of people at one of our army bases and a person does not have the right to say that they feel feaful and nervous if somebody is dressed in Muslim garb in an airport. Really????

Why do people like this always use somebody else that has done something wrong to try to get the conversation on another tack. The point of the whole things is not who did what when but do you have a right to express your feelings about a matter. Hmm seems like you don't according to Political Correctness which is whatever the person that says they are being politically correct thinks. What A Bunch Of Stinkin Thinkin.

It's a non-profit entity buddy. If you actually take the time to listen to it, it has no agenda. It's probably the most unbiased neutral news and analysis along wiht PBS. MSNBC, CNN, Fox, ABC and CBS are all run by coporations with a bottom line, therefore they each have their own agenda for dictating a narrative which best fits their view of society/country. PUBLIC funded news which is not paid for by tax payers contrary to what you are already convinced of, has no shareholders to apease, ergo they have no said agendas. If this all too much for you to take in "Osama" feel free to e-mail me and i'd be glad to discuss it more with you. Also just because a news outlet doesn't portray your view of the world does not make it inferior. I personally despise Fox News but i respect that you like it, you should try that sometime, respecting those who have a different opinion than you.

That should tell you something about the quality of the news the number of people that consume it grows if it is the truth and if it is a lie the consumers abandon it. Kinda like going to restaruants and ordering fried chicken and they bring you a bowl of beef stew. When you check out and and complain they tell you you got fried chicken. Don't think I would continue to go to that restaruant. But it seems you would. Really???

If they were to take a better look at insurgents and criminals one would know that; Look innocent, dress like those around you, and act like a good O'boy can give you more BANG for your cause. It is the home-grown killers we need to be more aware of when one is concured about one's life and families. Take a closer look at Ft. Hood killer, the shoe bomber, and those men on the airline.
Their skin color was that of Hispanics first,and Asian Indians second. Wow! what a eye opener, who will be the next home grown killer to make the new?

Again? Yeah, I'm not sure if you've heard, but Jewish people are not too fond of Nazi Cross Burnings. That's a practice of KKK members here in America who have a deep anti-semitic undertone to their backwards messages. Do not pose your white supremecist ideals as legitimate concerns. You are only showing yourself to be overwhelmingly ignorant and definitely no longer worthy of my thoughts.

Actually since this is a Public corporation funded with tax money the censorship of Juan does fall under the first amendment.

<quoted text>McVeigh was one sick minded individual who committed one act of terrorism, how many sick minded Muslims have committed terroristic acts through out the world? You're right McVeigh's act does not make all Christians terrorists, but all terrorists have been Muslims. McVeigh did not want to kill Muslims, on the other hand, Muslims want to kill anyone that is not a Muslim. Islam, a religion of Peace, I think not! You have a nice day.
Did you know McVeigh was connected to the muslim terrorists? Terry Nichols went to the Phillipines to meet with the terrorists.
Alot of people don't know this information.

They STILL to this day will not release the video of McVeigh in front of the Federal building talking with a middle eastern man before the destruction.
