Upon hearing the news about Juan Williams and his separation from National Public Radio (NPR), I could not even generate a yawn. The tension between NPR and his work at Fox News was brewing for some time. Thus, the manufactured outrage is outsized to the reality of the situation. Mr. Williams knew that he was pushing the envelope and he got what he wanted a lucrative contract from Fox News.
- I think Mr. Williams plays at being a “liberal” (like Alan Colmes). I think his conflict with NPR was to burnish his credentials as a conservative.
- In reading about this situation, I thought about Hosea 8:7 .
