Please take some time, Nick, to actually listen to the full portion of what Juan Williams stated. You parse and pontificate equally as well as Glenn Beck.

Juan, another high paid tool of Rupert Murdock, a foreign born media mogul.

I wonder if Nick ever walks downtown Minneapolis and looks over his shoulder. Oh, walking is hard for him at that time of the morning.

whether on FOX or not. Say Nick, do you have anything to say about ANYONE that doesn't sound bitter?

Nick, sounds like you are the angry one here. I thought it was only the right who had anger problems. Juan is probably the nicest, most civil lefty on the air. He constantly gets pummeled on Fox, and keeps coming back. Along w/ Rivera, Greta, Alan Colmes, etc., there actually is a counter-punch to the righties on Fox. What Juan did was opine on what 99% of all Americans also think when they are on an airplane. It is the same as your guy the Reverend Jesse Jackson feeling "relieved" when the footsteps he hears behind him when he walks in a city at night turn about to be those of whites, not blacks. You, like many of your fellow lefties, are utterly clueless. How dare you throw your own - Juan Williams - under the bus.

and I'm happy to see he parlayed his talent into a huge contract with Fox. Nicely played, Juan. Nicely played.

Nice cheap shot. Personally, I get nervous when I see p*ssed-off libs throwing their own over the cliff. What exactly do you fear about the very honest and soft-spoken Juan Williams? He is a true gentleman, and 1000 times more honest than any of you condescending libs. As much as I miss Garrison Keiller on this site, I must admit, you, Nick, are just as provocative. Heh heh heh. Keep up the good work!

It is the beauty of the free-mkt system. One group of fools cans you for being honest, and another takes you on board. Guess which one doesn't need the gov't funding?

I like NPR and will continue to listen but they were wrong to fire Juan Williams. Nick, much like the higher-ups at NPR, you didn't listen to the full discussion he had with O'Reilly. He really was taking O'Reilly and other commentators to task for stirring up anti-Muslim sentiment.
