What did Barack do to Juan Williams
He has been hyper critical of Obama on Fox News, and Juan Williams is now wearing an American Flag pin to "prove" he is patriotic. What a tool.

1. Juan Williams is a Fox commentator - that's all you need to know
When he took over Talk of the Nation from Ray Suarez on NPR, I had to quit listening to it for that time period.

6. Me, too. No comparison. Ray Suarez was the best. Juan is a disgrace.

11. Charles Gibson is a Fox commentator and he received praise here
When he stormed out of the set once protesting anti-Obama rhetoric. It's all relative.

8. Juan Williams has gone through a transformation
He's written good books on African American history and was the host of a very good syndicated black talk show. The longer he was with Fox the more his views changed. I'm wondering if he has officially become a Repub.

9. He's passing for Hispanic by using Juan as his first name......
His first name is really John. John Williams sounded too Black though.

He's the token and He likes that.

He disses Obama because he is afraid that he will be upstaged.

There are some jealous folks out there, ya know.

26. Juan Williams could be "upstaged" by a potted palm.
He's a fav of the conservatives because he's willing to sugar-coat a revisionist history of civil rights. He's vacuous and banal.

18. Juan Williams is a first class
ass. I still remember years ago when he got in trouble with a sex discrimination charge.

21. I Think It's Because He's A Black Pundit....
And he feels he has to overcompensate against Obama or else he will be criticized for favoritism.

Unfortunately in his effort to try and convince his conservative friends at Fox News that he would never "favor the black guy" his comments have lost credible, objective basis.

Even Bret Hume has been more objective commenting on Obama.


If Williams is that torn when it comes to personal conflictions, he should recuse himself or be introduced as a Republican/Clinton Pundit and not a neutral observer.

27. Juan Williams is afraid of being the "black liberal" so as a result he's harder on dems...
than his republican counter parts. He's extremely annoying.

31. Juan Must Be Real Popular With Conservative Whites...
I can imagine what they are thinking....

"See, it's okay to not like the black guy... even the articulate, nice looking colored man on TV hates him!"



And then they cross over and vote for Hillary in the democratic primary.

30. Juan Wkilliams is one of the best and I would say trusted
Reporters at Fox. He is fair and shows excellent judgement of situations.

32. ever since Juan was called out as an uncle tom, he hasn't been the
same. This was way back when O'Reilly had the Sylvia's Restaurant scandal. Juan's desperate and, frankly, an embarrassment.
