    Gotta love the tolerance…

    Guilt by association. Had he the sense to appear on MSNBC rather than FOX, he could offer any opinion he wants.

    That crazy NPR, thinking it’s a good idea to make reporters keep their opinions out of it, and to let the opinionated pundits talk.

    Shouldn’t Gwen Ifill be fired from PBS as well, John?

    Got me. What’s PBS’s policy about that?

    I’ll wait for your defense of Faux News’ blurring of the lines between reporter and pundit.

    Is it like one of those vaudeville / Fawlty Towers skits where the same guy keeps coming back to the reception desk, but wearing a different hat that reflects his role?

    NPR folks can hope Limbaugh dies, or that Helms or one of his grand kids get aids, but What Williams said is fireable. Amazing. BTW, Nina Totenburg still works there after the things she’s said. I guess the left won’t accept any uppity-ness.

    You found racism in the NPR management’s statements?

    That NPR producer did not have a reasonable expectation that her remarks about Rush were going to be public. She wrote on a private journalist list-serve. Also, you don’t know what’s in her contract as a producer. Nina’s remarks are from 1995. Was the same contract in place at that time? For all we know, the policy was changed *because* of Nina’s remarks.
