Let me get right wing punditry’s arguments straight here. It’s right and good to fire Dave Weigel from the Washington Post for making private criticisms of a single individual who had personally fucked him over, so long as the individual insulted was conservative. But it’s wrong to fire Juan Williams for making public statements implying that millions of people who are innocent of any crimes are potential terrorists because they share a faith that’s different from most of conservative America?
Here’s my question then: If Juan Williams had been fired for called Matt Drudge a turd-eater, then right wing America would be giving NPR a medal, right?
Is there anything I’m missing in this assessment?
