Juan Williams Should Have Been Given a Choice -- NPR or Fox

Mark Green | Posted 05.25.2011 | Media
Mark Green

The result was right though the process wasn't. Since you can't ride two horses in different directions, Williams should have been given a choice -- be a civil, thoughtful analyst on NPR or a demagogic winger on Fox.

Crazier Than a Fox

Chez Pazienza

The way it stands right now, Glenn Beck is the David Lee Roth of Fox News. There's the band, and then there's him -- and what's good for one isn't necessarily good for the other.

Stern Should Join Imus on the Fox Business Network

Charles Warner | Posted 05.25.2011 | Media
Charles Warner

Stern has become expendable and almost irrelevant except to a shrinking audience of aging slobs. So, what is such a rich has-been going to do? He should join another irrelevant, trash-talking, rich has-been, Don Imus.

Jeffrey Feldman | Posted 05.25.2011 | Politics
Jeffrey Feldman

Why would one of the most powerful figures in the American Catholic clergy step into the anti-Muslim hysteria waving a lie? Maybe somebody on the Archbishop's team is a regular viewer of Fox News.

Jackson Williams

What Beck traffics in is not legitimate news, and it's not even legitimate commentary about news. It's just gibberish, with fundamentalist Christianity thrown in.

Ari Rabin-Havt

A long line of inmates enters and exits a prison yard. As the lone black inmate reenters society, he peers into the camera with a menacing glance. The ad plays on "fears of the dangerous, violent, black male."

Is Limbaugh Verboten at Fox?

Michael Wolff | Posted 05.25.2011 | Media
Michael Wolff

The most natural topic in the world for Fox News -- a positive look at a leading conservative -- is peculiarly absent from the network. Radio silence. Not a whisper. Could it be because Limbaugh, in the book, aimed a choice zinger at Bill O'Reilly?
