Juan Williams hit it off with the I-man on the July 11 broadcast of Imus in the Morning. Apparently, Williams, who was fired by NPR in 2010, is the "foil" for the conservative personalities on Fox News. When Imus asked if Fox News was "right wing," Williams responded with "given what I'm up against, I think that's the way it comes across. If you're arguing politics with Krauthammer and Brit Hume or Eric Boiling or Dana Perino–everybody’s on the right so you say, hey, wait a minute there’s another way to think of this. But, in general, I don't know I would define myself as a liberal. I know most of the audience wouldn’t --But obviously, that is my job to be a foil for strong right-wing views."
However, while midway through the interview when Imus and Williams were talking about the real criticisms with Fox News, Mr. Williams reiterated that Fox News does disseminate serious content with journalistic integrity, especially in their six o'clock slot [Special Report], but then made a bizarre statement concerning how he was able to be on the network due to his conservativeleanings. This coming from a man who claims to be "foil" for "right wing views."
What is it about liberal media members making misogynistic comments towards conservative women?
Take for example Bob Beckel, the co-host of Fox News's The Five, who told FBN's Don Imus a few weeks ago, "If I was Juan [Williams] I'd wake up next to [Michelle Malkin] with a shotgun" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
