Fox News analyst Juan Williams is 'stabbed' by liberals

Veteran journalist and political analyst Juan Williams said in an interview with Ginni Thomas of The Daily Caller that establishment media regularly “stab” and “kill” dissenting voices such as his own. Famously fired by the taxpayer-funded National Public Radio outlet in 2010, Williams was released by NPR after saying he feels “nervous” when seated on an airplane with Muslims, even while speaking to the importance of religious tolerance.

When asked by Thomas about what he has learned from the experience, Williams said “I always thought it was the Archie Bunkers of the world, the right-wingers of world, who were more resistant and more closed-minded about hearing the other side.”  He added, “In fact, what I have learned is, in a very painful way — and I can open this shirt and show you the scars and the knife wounds — is that it is big media institutions who are identifiably more liberal to left-leaning who will shut you down, stab you and kill you, fire you, if they perceive that you are not telling the story in the way that they want it told.”

Referring to changes in journalism since he began his career at the Washington Post in 1978, Williams said “The big change for me is that if you brought Walter Cronkite to life in this moment he would be an abject failure as a journalist.” He said that media cater to "niches" in the public consciousness, while he decried a loss of a sense of commonality among Americans.

Ginni Thomas is the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, who is also the target of criticism by liberals.
