Come one, come all, and give what time and energy you can to help me, Julia Williams, Green Party candidate for US Rep, MI-12, go door-to-door and hang flyers. Please contact me via my website:
So that is Julia Williams and she is a Green candidate. You may know her from her comments at Corrente. If so, you know she is opposed to the wars, to building an empire, and she is for equality for all. You can check out her website and learn more about her. If you are in her district, I hope that you will check out her website.
From one Williams to another, Juan Williams. Mr. Williams was fired from NPR. I have said I would weigh in today and I have already noted that (a) I do not think he should be fired and (b) that the totality of his remarks appear to have been missed. Politico reports that he told Good Morning America today that NPR acted in a vindictive manner.
Alicia Shephard -- NPR's non-working ombudsperson -- weighs in with her usual nit-wit nonsense, Mr. Williams, she says, should have been fired but he should have been given a chance to defend himself. Why?
If she believes the firing was right, a defense was a waste of time. Unless it was just to make Mr. Williams jump through hoops. Which does bring up the racial component that Ms. Shephard raises only to immediately deny. Ava and C.I. are covering this Sunday and I know they will do a wonderful job.
I do not think Mr. Williams deserved to be fired and his firing came in the midst of my calling out the C.E.O. and president of NPR:
Ms. Schiller is the problem. If she understood what "public broadcasting" meant, none of this would have happened.
This is C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot" for today:
