Seriously, NPR, what the hell is a "news analyst"?


My favorite media guru, the NYU "mindcaster" Jay Rosen, weighs in on a bizarre aspect of the Juan Williams bruhaha, which is that NPR has people who have the ability to "analyze" what the news means while remaining completely free of dreaded "opinions." Good sidetrip into the mind of arguably the most insipid person in all of Beltway journalism, the inscrutable Cokie Roberts.
