National Liberal Radio and the firing of Juan Williams

Ed Driscoll has a comprehensive roundup of links on NPR's termination of Juan Williams' contract.

Update: Well, at least the guy wasn't out of a job too long. Fox News has just offered Williams a $2 million deal.

Every cloud has a silver lining.

Go Fox!

He was too outspoken and 'transgressive' for the stodgy NPR listeners. Everything is upside down now, compared to the 60's - we conservatives are the 'radicals'

BTW, that kind of risk-taking business model is why Murdoch is a success, not any weird conspiracy. While the MSM's conformist approach underpins their decline.

One in a million is now Juan with two million.

NPR managed to do what Obama promised he would do...unite. There are from across the spectrum that are telling NPR they went too far.

There's more than one silver lining to this cloud, Bruce. The Left showed their true colors, Juan got the millions, Fox has even more diversity, Jim DeMint is calling for defunding, and the sure bet is NPR lost some supporters. Win-win.

Paco, the word verification is "rednec". ?? Now it changed to "roxid". New code?
