Southern Man

The political blogs are all abuzz with the firing of Juan Williams from NPR, who apparently irritated listeners by daring to appear on Fox News and utter opinions that they found unpalatable. Yet, Fox commentators regularly appear on the liberal media and do much the same thing - Bill O'Reilly comes to mind - and Fox viewers do not make regular demands for Bill's head. And there was no outcry when Williams, an NPR regular, appeared on Fox. Could it be that Fox News listeners are more tolerant of diversity and opposing opinions than are NPR listeners?

Michael Barone says this much better here. Hat tip to - well, a bunch of political blogs.
