Losing Freedom Of Speech?

Oct. 21) — NPR has fired longtime news analyst Juan Williams after he told the Fox News Channel that he gets nervous when he sees Muslims on airplanes.

Williams appeared on “The O’Reilly Factor” on Monday, and host Bill O’Reilly asked him what he thought about the idea that America is facing a “Muslim dilemma.” The Fox News personality caused a stir recently on ABC’s “The View,” when co-hosts Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg walked off the set to protest his comments blaming Muslims for the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

NPR Fires Analyst For Saying He's Scared of Muslims 
Longtime NPR news analyst Juan Williams was fired because comments he made on Fox News “were inconsistent with our editorial standards and practices,” NPR said in a statement.
Are we losing our freedom of speech? Should he fear his employer?  This man stated an opinion of what a large portion  of  the American population may think, and he gets fired for voicing his own opinion? We preach tolerance, we preach peace, we preach freedom of speech.  A lot of things can be scary, but an opinion!? Was his personal opinion grounds for being fired? This is America, this your voice!! We’ll be tackling this subject on Sunday’s show.
