Juan Williams was fired from NPR. I don't agree with a lot of what Juan has to say but fire him? NO WAY! The NPR are hypocrits!!!!

I do not listen to public radio channels or for the most part public TV. They were stupid to fire him when they were about to start their fund raising and this also benefits the Tea Party movement. I suspect this will be in the news long after the elections are over.

It may also result in litigation as the "head" of NPR suggested publicly that Juan might need help with his mental health! As I recall, someone made that allegation on this politics forum not too long ago.

It certainly appears that the left has nothing more to run on.

NPR is now just another Soros front organization.

I don't always agree with the man, BUT, he is ALWAYS honest and forthcoming with his thoughts and opinions, and I CANNOT disagree with that!

NPR was his employer. They have a personal conduct policy, saying that if you're going to represent them in public you will conduct yourself in a manner befitting them. They felt he failed to do that.

BTW, this was not his first scrap with NPR. They continually asked him not to refer to himself as "NPR Correspondent" during his other media appearances.

Strange that they did not hold other employees to the same standard. They ruined their fund raising and at the beginning too. Unless Soros is willing to take over the expenses, this could be the beginning of the end of NPR. There appears to be a taste on both sides of the isle to cut federal funding and many states will cut funding too.

Well if what he did was ohhhhhh! Soooooo bad!? Then what about that woman, who still holds a job there, who wished aids on a politicians child. Can someone tell me if that's ok to wish on someone?

I will try to find her name again but the legislator was Jesse Helms and she extended it to his grand children too. Another instance was involving religion and the rapture. They felt that if 6,000 Christians disappeared the world would be a better place and they laughed.

It is pretty hard to have "ethics rules" when you have NO ethics. We talked about this at lunch yesterday and even the D's at the table felt NPR was trash.

According to very competent attorneys that clause is void and unenforceable because NPR has failed to enforce it either consistently or evenhandedly, both with Mr. Williams and others on their staff.

We tossed that about over lunch (two attorneys in the group) and he is a fool if he does not sue! Also today, it was discovered that Soros had given over 2M to NPR.

And Totenberg is NPR's award-winning legal affairs correspondent?

That may be one of the most despicable comments I've seen (including the d-bag laughing in the background of the above clip). Wow. It's not bad enough that she wishes God strike Helms w/AIDs through transfusion, but then has the audacity to add "and maybe his grandkids"? Are you kidding me?

...I'm just glad I stopped listening to NPR long, long ago.

I don't think it will have any significant impact on their funding. Soros' $2 million is a drop in the bucket of an approximately $168 million budget, and government funding is only 2% of that according to a CBS story on the affair. Still the vast majority of NPR funding is from public donations, hence National PUBLIC Radio. I think it will go on as before.
