UPDATED: IRONY OF THE WEEK: NATIONAL PUBLIC RADIO SQUELCHES FREE SPEECH

Your tax dollars at work…on censorship: NPR Fires Juan Williams Over Remarks About Muslims.

Funny how Fox News never fired him over his remarks against conservative policies…Can we finally refer to NPR as ‘Minitrue disguised as a public service’ without getting any weird looks?

NPR is not exactly a federal agency.  But its operation is  financed in part by taxpayers.  That our money can be used to shut people up for  expressing an opinion is beyond disgraceful.

Hopefully the State Department won’t catch the Ground Zero Mosque imam making any “inappropriate” remarks while on tour.  It’d be terrible to see that guy lose his travel money, wouldn’t it?

UPDATE: Study: NPR not diverse.  Noooo?  Reaallyyyyy? (via Big Journalism).

If NPR is Minitrue, where is Room 101?  I must confess All Things Considered can be torture…
