Good Counterpoint to Juan Williams
After my post lamenting Juan Williams yesterday (see below), I'll recommend NPR's interview this morning with Cory Booker, the new mayor of Newark, New Jersey. He represents neither the pro-Establishment views of Williams, nor a traditional civil rights approach, but more of a historically informed pragmatism. This is refreshing since many NPR debates offer a narrow right vs. right center framework. It will be interesting to see who else NPR interviews for this Black Leadership series.
