Firing Juan

I find it (almost) amusing that NPR didn't want anyone to know that Williams was also on Fox. I can't believe I'm the only who figured that out by listening to both networks! And why not be pleased at having a contributor respected by major news programs of very different opinions? And as you pointed out, Tom,
an African American at that!

Firing Juan

I am as unhappy about the way NPR fired Juan Williams, as I am at the act itself.

It's another example of how hard the lines are between left and right and how rigid and uncompromising supposed liberal thinkers have become. If Mr. Williams was irritating NPR, or acted badly in their view, after all the years he worked for them, they might have called him in and spoken to him quietly.

That said, I've been a supporter of NPR for decades, but I find our nation's political future bleak, if they too have decided the only way to win the game is to go helmet to helmet.
