We are assured from NPR mouth pieces that Juan Williams was fired for expressing a personal opinion, which is against NPR rules. If those are the rules, they seem to be selectively enforced as this old footage of Nina Totenberg shows. Could it be that Juan Williams was fired for expressing a politically incorrect opinion on a conservative friendly news network while being African American? Could it be that NPR allows its reporters to wish that Republican Senators or their innocent grandkids die a slow, horrible death from AIDS and are now fired?
Mind if a conservative should call down the wrath of the Almighty upon the head of–say–Barack Obama, he or she would get different treatment indeed.
