    Epub Muzzled Kindle À Ç nuiun.de Ç muzzled epub, Muzzled PDFMuzzled is Juan Williams' report on his much publicized firing from National Public Radio apparently because he said it was hard not to see people getting on a plane in Muslim garb and not be concerned that they identified themselves so strongly with their religion This said Williams is a natural reaction but we mustn't let it influence our view of moderate Muslims This is a fairly frank statement and I think it reflects well on the reporter that he is aware of his own prejudices and consciously tries to avoid them NPR didn't see it that way and fired him abruptly over the phone after many years on the air His former boss then implied he was mentally unbalanced he should talk about that with his psychiatrist The resulting controversy was immense That a medium that pays a man to talk about what he thinks should fire him for saying what he thinks on another network and on another medium seemed to many a symptom of the assault o

    Epub Muzzled Kindle À Ç nuiun.de Ç muzzled epub, Muzzled PDFJuan Williams book is an interesting read Most people would agree that he is right that politics have become too partisan and too negative However political moderatism has been losing ground Mr Williams explains why the moderate movement is failing and how the political extremes are able to control the debateHe also tells the story of how he was fired from NPR While he generally liked most of the people he worked with His disagreed with their leadership in particular their insistance on having all their people share the same viewpoints They had a problem with him associating with Fox News He spends some time comparing Fox to NPR with the main difference being at least Fox will expose viewers to people who disagree with the prevailing conservatism of the hosts Juan goes from ther
