Obviously it is newsworthy if I post on a Friday instead of my regular Sunday and Wednesday (did any of you realize I had a schedule?)
It seems Juan Williams of National Public Radio fame had spent too much time over at Fox News commenting on the news of the day and has now lost his contract with NPR. For those readers outside the country, NPR is funded in part by the government and some will say it is the only way liberal radio can survive. Of course Fox News is deemed a branch of the right wing conservative movement so you can see the rub.
It is interesting that NPR would use the excuse that their reporters and analysts are not supposed to provide personal opinion but rather merely ask questions. You can make your opinion known simply by editorial decisions on editing, who to interview and how you ask questions.
In the end, Juan ends up with a $2 million contract from Fox News so we won’t be seeing him on the unemployment line.
