Think Progress has the transcript:
JUAN WILLIAMS: You can try to minimize it, but the fact that you have Scooter Libby, so involved in justifying going to war, and in the posture of trying to smear a critic of that justification. I think is pretty revealing and pretty damaging to the Bush White House. I think they’re going to have to rebuild a sense of trust with the American People. And that’s why when Brit asked this question, why did he have to lie, he felt the need to lie if he did lie, but by all indications he’s going to say I didn’t remember it quite the way this person remembered and all the like. That’s not very strong in my book, and I think Fitzgerald did a terrific job on Friday. But the reason he felt the need was to make it clear that he was not involved in what really was a conspiracy to defame Joe Wilson.Hume is, of course referring to the practice of turning firehoses and attack dogs on blacks who dared to protest in the 1960s.
BRIT HUME: Juan, somebody needs to hose you down.
Crooks and Liars has the video here.
It's time we gave Hume a hosedown of his own. Some folks who might be interested in hearing your thoughts about this:
Holiday Inn Express
the FCC (1-888-225-5322)
and a few activists
Oprah Winfrey The Black Commentator AfroAmerica Black Action Network The National Association of Black Citizens Action The Black Electorate Black In America The National Newspaper Publishers Association/Black Press of America (202-588-8764) Congresswoman Cynthia Ann McKinney (202-225-1605) Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee (202-225-3816) The Coalition of Black Trade Unionists Michael Moore Bob Herbert of the NY Times and People for the American Way
My message (feel free to copy verbatim or write your own):
I'm writing to you today out of extreme anger. I understand your company advertises with FOX News, where Britt Hume has recently suggested a black journalist be "hosed down" for expressing a dissenting point of view on television.
Turning firehoses and attack dogs on black Americans was the brutal method used to suppress freedom of speech during the 1960s.
Open-hearted Americans of all colors have fought too long and too hard against such hatred and intolerance. While Fox News continues to condone such appalling bigotry, I cannot in good conscience buy anything from a company that supports it. Please let me know if your company plans to continue supporting such appalling behaviour, or if my family, friends and extensive Internet contacts can consider purchasing your products again.

Quote of the Day:"There is nothing more dangerous than to build a society, with a large segment of people in that society, who feel that they have no stake in it; who feel that they have nothing to lose. People who have a stake in their society, protect that society, but when they don't have it, they unconsciously want to destroy it.
-- Dr. Martin Luther King
