Fox News - FIRE Juan Williams
We, the undersigned, demand the removal of Juan Williams from your lineup of on-air personalities. He consistently and deliberately misrepresents the truth for partisan purposes. While some of your other Democratic contributors provide views that seek to balance the conservative leanings of your network, Williams simply LIES.
The latest and most serious example is his continued misrepresentation of the President's remarks in his telephone call with the Ukranian President. Knowing that most Americans will not have actually read the transcript of that call, Williams knowingly makes the false claim that Trump "pressured" Zelinisky by threatening to withhold military aid.
Anyone who has read that transcript can immediately see that the ONLY reference to anything "military" (i.e. Javelin missiles) was made by Zelinsky, NOT Trump. And, as the New York Times reported just days after this story broke, the Ukranians have said they didn't even KNOW the aid had been temporarily delayed until a month AFTER the July 25th phone call.
Williams KNOWS all this. Yet, he still lies about it. We understand the difference between News and Commentary. But, in both cases, Fox should be committed to the Truth. Williams is not.
