CHANGE: Juan Williams, NPR and the Death of Liberalism. It’s just sad to see racism has taken over so many of America’s top institutions. First the Tea Party, now this. . . .

UPDATE: A call to defund NPR.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Reader Dale Beihoffer writes: “According to the NYT story on Juan Williams, ombudswoman Alicia C. Shepard said that Juan was a ‘lightning rod’ for NPR, noting that ‘she had received 378 listener e-mails in 2008 listing complaints and frustrations about Mr. Williams.’ Your readers should be able to do much better than 378 emails to her!”

Well, I don’t see the point emailing ‘em, really, but what wimps. Is that all it takes to get someone fired at NPR? 378 people with five minutes and an Internet connection? Point noted. . . .
