AIR DATE: August 31, 2011

Journalist Juan Williams left NPR in a very public firing last year, after he made comments about "people who are in Muslim garb" on TV.  NPR said he overstepped his bounds as an analyst, and Juan retorted that his free speech was being muzzled.  He's turned that into a new book: Muzzled: The Assault on Honest Debate.  We talk with journalist Juan Williams about where speech is stifled in America, and what he's doing in post-NPR life.

Great interview with Jaun Williams. I liked what he had to say about the political discourse here. Politics and the system of government in this country is broken, and badly broken at that ... I have had the pleasure of living in 7 different countries and have nevr encountered an atmosphere as caustic as I find here today The Fouding Fathers of this great country were idealistic when they drafted the Constitution. Given the way governement here has been designed - it cannot work without compromise Noone- I repeat noone in politics today wants to do this; compromise has become a dirty word

When will Mr. Williams begin his own 'fair and balanced' network?
