I'm a big NPR fan. Firing Juan Williams was a bonehead move. Executives at the taxpayer-subsidized network took what he said out of context in the same way the White House did comments by Agriculture Department official Shirley Sherrod. President Obama ended up apologizing and offering her another job. NPR should do the same for Williams, who's one of the best (and least-predictable) commentators in the business.
