Fox Pundit Who Called Michelle Obama “Stokely Carmichael in a Designer Dress” Whines About Not Being Warmly Welcomed at Democratic Convention
When Williams spoke with Bill O’Reilly on Tuesday night, he said that his employer, Fox News, made him persona non grata at the Democratic National Convention. When asked about his reaction to it, he replied, “I’m a big boy.”
“I gotta tell you, what’s interesting here is, it’s very clear that I work with you and Fox News,” Williams said. O’Reilly then asked, “Are you stigmatized?” — to which Williams simply said, “It’s all right, I don’t mind it. It’s who I work for, I’m a proud employee. … I’m a big boy.”
“On the streets, do people give you a hard time?” O’Reilly continued.
“People just want to know, why do you work for Fox, why do you have to be there,” Williams said. Following O’Reilly’s bad joke about “disgruntled” NPR employees (Williams was fired from NPR awhile back), he added that his answer those who questioned him was that he’s his own man, and “nobody’s telling me what to say.” He went on to say that Fox allows for “honest” conversations and debates.
Honest how? Honest in the way that the network paired Sean Hannity with that parrot in a tuxedo, Alan Colmes? To Fox, balanced reporting is pairing a blowhard Republican with a subservient and submissive Democrat.
But one has to ask, what sort of reception Williams thought he was going to get at the Democratic Convention, considering he works for a network that does all it can to undermine President Obama? Or was this just another opportunity to play the victim and whimper about how poorly he’s treated?
Either way, nobody’s buying it. Sounds to me like Williams was treated kindly. Nobody attacked him or called him a bad name, so he should really just let it go. But if anyone is unkind to Williams, it’s probably because in 2009, Williams called Michelle Obama “Stokely Carmichael in a designer dress.” That, more than anything, explains any residual animosity he’s feeling from Democrats.
