Juan Williams Fired From NPR

I found it interesting that NPR felt the need to fire Juan Williams the other day for his comments on Faux News about being nervous when flying with devout Muslims. Wasn't Williams simply expressing the feeling many xenophobes have been expressing for years? But what I find even more interesting is how many Conservatives are going ballistic over the firing with many even calling for the boycott of NPR.

Of course the interesting part isn't the Conservative's call for a boycott as one would have expected that, it is that they would think that folks at NPR would be worried about losing people that never listen to NPR to begin with...

UPDATE: Love it! NPR reps in Washington are reportedly getting numerous scripted calls stating that due to the Williams firing, they will never "watch" NPR again.
