Within 24 hours, Juan Williams lost his job as an analyst at NPR, only to sign a lucrative $2 million contract with Fox News.

Like...

I always listened to him on Fox and thought sometimes he disagreed but normally he fit in rather well.

He was normally positioned as the Democrat or liberal voice. He defends Obama on a lot of issues but did not tow the liberal democrat line 100%. I always felt he offered pretty level headed rebuttals on the Fox opinion shows.

He offered objective opinion, unlike most of the posters in the Tinderbox. Never listened to him on NPR. Not a fan of NPR.

I know Fox News use to refer to him as a liberal which I always thought was funny because he didn't seem like much of one at least not enough to balance out the rest of the panel.

Just because Fox News says he is a liberal doesn't mean he is actually a liberal.

And because the media says someone is conservative or a nut job doesn't mean that person is either right?
See how that works?

Williams and Bob Beckel rotate in as the Obama defending liberal voice on Hannity. Williams actually reminds me a lot of cookinwithgas. Says a lot of the same things.
