I heard Juan telling his side of this one but haven't yet heard the story as told by NPR and Spooky Dude who just, more or less, bought them out.

Anybody else hear this, or am I hearing things and need to see a "psychiatrist" myself???
Naw, neither you or Williams needs to see a psychiatrist although Spooky Dude and his new organization for running Beck and Fox out of business may need some help soon.

I wonder how many people have forgotten this fact about that killer in the year since he played his terrorist game? I'll bet nearly every prog in the place has done just that

I thought when he said that that it was one of his most racist statements from his early life. Not the only one but one of the worst. I didn't read the book but said back then that it was very racist.

Whew! Good to know. I feared we all would start having to take those little pills handed out by Nurse Ratchet. It will, indeed be interesting to see how Spooky Dude reacts to all this backlash. Was it really not anticipated?

Odd that Faux packages him as something he's not...
Since you watch Fox all the time you evidently missed the intros of him where they call him a once Democrat. Hey, I was a Democrat for the first 21 years of my voting life but I finally saw the light and switched over 30 years ago, maybe nearly 40 years. I guess it is not PC for me to call myself a reformed Democrat, huh.

Has anyone watched the full clip? I wonder if the Leftists at NPR have.

Beck knew he would push old Spooky Dude into doing something like this and I think that spurred him on. It is too bad that Williams, more or less, got caught up in it all but s**t happens.

Be sure to watch Beck in about 45 minutes as he will have more to say in his imitation of Spooky Dude and about Williams, too.
