Praise

“Juan Williams is both dangerous and highly constructive.  He is both of these because, although he is a liberal, he is also a well-informed independent thinker.  Driven by conviction and evidence, he is not afraid to dissent from liberal orthodoxy.  He’s a liberal with whom conservatives can have an honest debate and sometimes find common ground.  And while I don’t necessarily agree with every observation or opinion in this book, it is Juan’s candid appraisal of the condition of political debate in America. It ain’t a pretty sight.”
—Karl Rove, former senior advisor to President George W. Bush
 
“For any American who fears the coarsening of our political debate has become an impediment to our progress as a people – and, more importantly, is wondering how to fix it – Juan Williams has written a book well worth reading.”
—David Axelrod, former senior advisor to President Barack Obama
 
“Ever since Juan Williams wrote Eyes on the Prize about the Civil Rights movement I’ve been an admirer.  It was painful to see him become the insect-in-the-jar last year for speaking his mind freely on Fox News.  In Muzzled Williams gets to settle mighty scores.  Its a thoughtful, poignant and well written defense of his journalism career.  And its a cautionary tale about political correctness run amok.  Highly recommended!”
—Douglas Brinkley, professor of history at Rice University and author of the New York Times bestsellers The Wilderness Warrior and The Great Deluge

“Juan Williams has written a fascinating account of what happened to him at NPR, and used it to make the case for a serious and civilized political debate. An important book and a compelling read.”
—Brit Hume, Senior Political Analyst, Fox News Channel

“Juan Williams has written a poignant and powerful book about the degradation of our democratic dialogue. He skewers right and left alike for their tendency to use labels and applause lines to try to silence opposition. Don’t fall into the trap of thinking that you already know what he is going to say. Read the book instead. You will come away, as I did, sobered about the state of our politics, and determined to demand better.”
—Stephen L. Carter, William Nelson Cromwell Professor of Law at Yale University

“Juan Williams truly understands the importance of fighting hard for honest debate in America. Though we disagree on many issues, I was pleased to help make sure that his strong voice was not silenced by those who give lip service to the First Amendment. Like his on-air appearances, Juan’s writing is smart and honest. Muzzled is the compelling story of our Constitution in action and one man’s willingness as an American to speak his mind at any cost.”
—Roger Ailes, President of Fox News Channel and Chairman of the Fox Television Stations Group

“Juan Williams has written a fascinating account of what happened to him at NPR, and used it to make the case for a serious and civilized political debate. An important book and a compelling read.”
