    Plus, there's the whole business of standing for free speech on principle and so forth.

    But Juan wasn't so much fired for what he said as for what he said AND going on Fox News and saying it as "NPR Correspondent Juan Williams" in full defiance of NPR's own guidelines that he'd already broken before.

    Shep Smith could go on Maddow and tell everyone what he thinks of teabaggers and Glenn Beck, and Fox would be totally within their rights to fire him.

    It's just the latest right-wing poutrage de jour, rendered in blank verse via the poetic stylings of Snowball Snooki.
