NPR Ombudsman on Juan Williams catastrophe

In my first post on this NPR catastrophe I noted:
“NPR Ombudsman promises commentary to come.
Given the nature of her past commentary, this should be ‘interesting’.”
As expected, Alicia Shepard did not disappoint.

A tiny fraction of her commentary sheds light on the fact that NPR is getting hammered just as hard and just as uniformly by Leftists and NPR loyalists as anybody else:
“Thursday was a day like none I’ve experienced since coming to NPR in October 2007. Office phone lines rang non-stop like an alarm bell with no off button. We’ve received more than 8,000 emails, a record with nothing a close second….

At noon, the deluge of email crashed NPR’s ‘Contact Us’ form on the web site.

The overwhelming majority are angry, furious, outraged. They want NPR to hire him back immediately. If NPR doesn't, they want all public funding of public radio to stop. They promise to never donate again. They are as mad as hell, and want everyone to know it. It was daunting to answer the phone and hear so much unrestrained anger.”
The rest of Alicia’s typically excessively verbose nonsense was the usual, predictable, far left propagandistic claptrap which NPR and their Ombudsman are both famous for. When Leftists are cornered -- especially when cornered by virtue of their own insanity -- they always resort to the logical fallacy of the tired old moral equivalence pseudo-argument. In this case, Ms. Shepard wondered out loud:
“I can only imagine how Williams, who has chronicled and championed the Civil Rights movement, would have reacted if another prominent journalist had said:

‘But when I get on the plane, I got to tell you, if I see an African American male in Dashiki with a big Afro, I get worried. I get nervous.’ ”
Gee, Alicia, I don’t know. But, if African American males -- using airplanes as guided missles -- ever perpetrate anything even remotely as murderously evil as 9/11, I’ll get back to you on that -- ya’ blind as a bat blond headed BIMBO!

Yep -- Bimbo.

But, I suppose you're too dense and far too well indoctrinated to comprehend either the fact of the matter or the implied assault on the tyranny of Political Correctness.
