CHANGE, AND MEDIA FEAR: “Isn’t it amazing how these same people that were thrilled by the idea of America electing as president a junior senator from Illinois with little qualification for the most important office in the land are now scared to death about who may be going to Congress next January?”
UPDATE: Charlie Martin emails:
I’m kind of curious whether NPR is going to reprimand Totenberg now. This was after Juan Williams was fired, so there’s certainly no excuse that she either didn’t know the policy, or that her past transgressions were before a change in policy.
Okay, I admit it: that was rhetorical. I don’t *really* wonder.
She’s popular with the tote-bag crowd; Williams wasn’t, because he challenged their idea of what a black man could say in public.
