Coffee with Juan Williams On the opposition to President Obama's agenda, NPR's Juan Williams says there's more at play than just politics. Though, he says to call it racism might be going too far. The writer and Fox News contributor comes to town Monday as part of the Town Hall of Cleveland Series. Before he does, he'll join us on the next Sound of Ideas to talk about what's actually happening in Washington, who has the power and where U.S. policy might be headed. You're invited too so grab a cup of coffee and join in, Monday morning at 9 on 90.3.

I’ve long admired Mr. Williams’ work.  My question is how can he reconcile working for the Fox Network, that deliberately distorts the facts and is nothing more than tabloid journalism (and I use the term journalism loosely in their case).

Rep Joe Wilson’s outburst was triggered by The Presidents statement that illegal (undocumented) aliens would not be covered. Is anyone following the bill to discover what the reality is?

Kirk Miller 10:02 AM 9/21/09

I disagree with Mr. William’s assertion that the two-party system provides “balance”. On the contrary, it creates a stalemate that limits progress, especially given that both the Democratic and Republican parties are generally beholden to the same corporate interests for their hold power.

Amo--it’s an important question about illegal immigrants, and NPR has found answers. They’re here:

Mr Williams,

I must be completely honest with you sir. At first I didnt really care for input or what you had to say on the Fox news network. I have however always respected you, because you stand up for what you believe in and state the fact. After watching the O’Riley show, where you were rudely insulted and they way you handled yourself, made me an immediate fan. God Bless you and your family Mr Williams, and Im sorry that you have to take that kind of abuse. Also sir, I would like to know how I can hear your radio show? I am a Soldier in the U.S Army and have over 14years of service and currently stationed in Ft Campbell, Ky home of the 101st Airborne Division...Thank you for your time sir, Im sure you receive millions of emails daily...God and Country
