We do not live in the Libertopian world that many of us write about. I am all for at-will employment and canning someone for any reason the employer wishes. However, there are some possible current-world legal issues involved here. CAIR is part of the terrorist organization Hamas and there are some questions about their influence on the NPR decision to fire Williams. Foreign agents are not supposed to do that.
Our convoluted labor laws open a whole other can of worms. NPR CEO Vivian Schiller came up with this gem: Juan Williams should have kept his feelings about Muslims between himself and "his psychiatrist or his publicist." Of course, she later backpedaled from this possible violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Her callous remarks were in a prepared statement for the Atlanta Press Club, not some offhand remark while joking around with a fellow traveler.
Now, for a little irony, I took this picture of NPR Headquarters several weeks ago:
