Apparently since they can’t get people to stop watching Fox they can retaliate against those who dare cross the Fox line:

Specifically, in a conversation about Islamic terrorism, Williams said on the O’Reilly Factor that he sometimes had fear on airplanes seeing muslim passengers in Islamic garb.

NPR said Juan Williams’ comments “undermined his credibility as a news analyst with NPR” and “his remarks on the O’Reilly Factor … were inconsistent with our editorial standards.”

For reference, NPR recently ran a segment on how to speak “tea bagger”.

Michelle Malkin reminds us of the new Soros money, Jimmie Bise talks about Fox phobia and big journalism gives us a useful NPR list.

Me? I’m reminded of this post just a few five days ago:

“NPR has the right approach because they are in the business of serving the public,” She said. “I think it is perfectly consistent to require a higher standard of impartiality.”

That these two stories took place in the same week is serious Irony overload.

But I’ve met Pam Geller, one of the most fearless foes of Jihad there is. I’ve met the people she has associated with and I’ve seen what they have gone through to protest us.

Beck has the right to his opinion but Pam knows the facts and I trust her.

However Stacy bottom lines it best:

If the protesters against Wilders are “anti-fascist,” then what does that make Wilders? He’s a “fascist” in the same sense that Mark Steyn is a fascist — which is to say, someone the Left hates.

Yup that’s about it.

If Fox is suppressing the video that mean they know they just walked into a minefield. Will any other cable network take advantage?

O’Keefe not withstanding, A million members of the left must be going Kryten today.

Fox is the most trusted television news network in the country, according to a new poll out Tuesday.

A Public Policy Polling nationwide survey of 1,151 registered voters Jan. 18-19 found that 49 percent of Americans trusted Fox News, 10 percentage points more than any other network.

Thirty-seven percent said they didn’t trust Fox, also the lowest level of distrust that any of the networks recorded.

There is some serious gloating going on

Meanwhile on the left: disbelief and resignation.

I used to get upset about this sort of thing, but now? Pft. Whatever.

Couple this with a new influx of corporate cash into political advertising and… well hey, democracy was nice while it lasted.

Boom!

Just remember this would not have been possible without the long term cooperation of the MSM. Acorn videos, Van Jones, Tea Parties, “Racism”, Ken Gladney, Anita Dunn, Kevin Jennings, ¿Quien sabe? and Sarah Palin’s “Acknowledged Grandchild”, all ignored, misrepresented, delayed or otherwise not covered by the MSM…

…and that’s just in the last year!

The difference, how many days did it that the MSM to cover O’Keefe and Acorn, days, even weeks.

How many days did it take Fox to cover the story? On the net same day. On TV? I saw it this morning.

That’s it in a nutshell!

Oh and Fox, don’t get cocky, if you fall into the MSM’s habits you will suffer the same fate and deserve it.

…but there were plenty of people waiting outside to get in to see the President who were not let in. In my opinion this Fox report is misleading.

Cameron was inside and I wasn’t so I don’t doubt that he saw a hall that was not filled, but it wasn’t for lack of supporters as at least 500 people that I presume were Coakley supporters were not let in. I know since I was in the middle of them.

In fact I personally spoke to a woman with a cane and a pronounced limp who had been passed through but was sent back due to fire limitations. (more on her later tonight). Perhaps it was a question of security. There were easily more Scott Brown people outside protesting than Coakley people waiting to come in (more on that later) so maybe they were worried about screening out people who opposed the president and the candidate getting in so the campaign had to keep a tight leash to avoid mass heckling.

Either way the implication that she could not fill the hall is false and should be clarified by Fox.

However Cameron is absolutely correct that there is no comparison in terms of enthusiasm. Perhaps because I am less experienced than Robert Stacy but after what I saw today in BOSTON proper, continuing the Game 7 parallel it is the bottom of the 5th with the Sox up 8-1

Update: I like Gateway pundit a lot but it would be a good idea to correct this post on the subject.

Update 2: Stacy was there with the Brown people and can back me up.

Update 3: Holy Guacamole 2 instalances in one month! (eat your heart out Charles) and for once I’m at my PC when it happens! Welcome Instapundit readers I’ve had Robert Stacy McCain crashing on my couch this week proving that my wife is part of the World’s greatest family. You can read my first hand reports (and low brow humor ) here And you can find Stacy’s coverage on both his site, the American Spectator blog and the green room.

As we say in the North End. “Leave the candidate, bring the cannoli
