Fox News political analyst and âSpecial Reportâ panelist Juan Williams said in an interview with The Daily Callerâs Ginni Thomas that mainstream media outlets âstabâ and âkillâ dissenting voices.
Williams was fired from National Public Radio in 2010 after saying he sometimes gets ânervousâ when seated on an airplane with Muslims, while making a broader point about the importance of religious tolerance.
âI always thought it was the right-wingers of the world who were more resistant and more closed-minded about hearing the other side,â he said. âIn fact, what I have learned is, in a very painful way â and I can open this shirt and show you the scars and the knife wounds â is that it is big media institutions that are identifiably more liberal to left-leaning who will shut you down, stab you and kill you, fire you. [They] don't want a black guy saying this."
