Liberal Media Will 'shut you down, stab you, kill you' if you disagree
Fox News political analyst and â€śSpecial Reportâ€ť panelist Juan Williams said in an interview with The Daily Callerâ€™s Ginni Thomas that mainstream media outlets â€śstabâ€ť and â€śkillâ€ť dissenting voices.
Williams was fired from National Public Radio in 2010 after saying he sometimes gets â€śnervousâ€ť when seated on an airplane with Muslims, while making a broader point about the importance of religious tolerance.
â€śI always thought it was the Archie Bunkers of the world, the right-wingers of world, who were more resistant and more closed-minded about hearing the other side,â€ť he said. â€śIn 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 who are identifiably more liberal to left-leaning who will shut you down, stab you and kill you, fire you, if they perceive that you are not telling the story in the way that they want it told.â€ť
