Juan Williams Pushes NPR Over the Edge

Guy Bensen, National Review [1], on Juan Williams:

I have great admiration for Juan Williams. Although we rarely agree on issues, his arguments almost always strike me as thoughtful, measured, and ideologically unpredictable. Having had the pleasure of meeting Juan a few times, I can also attest that he’s a heck of a nice guy. He brings so much to the table for both media outlets, and it’s a true shame that a handful of intolerant complainers can generate a phony firestorm to discredit him.

Well stated and seconded Mr. Bensen.

Robert Stacy McCain, Real Other McCain [2]:

J.P. Freire has a post about the controversy surrounding this video of a Jan. 26 appearance on “The O’Reilly Factor” where Williams calls Michelle Obama “Stokely Carmichael in a designer dress”:

Williams makes an apt analogy, see above for the supporting evidence.
