Because NPR fired him, he must be ... "conservative!"

How ridiculous is this: ABC News labels Juan Williams -- Juan Williams!! -- a "conservative" in a story about National Public Radio CEO Vivian Schiller resigning:

NPR's embattled chief executive resigned today after the top fundraiser for NPR said offensive things about Republicans and the Tea Party during an undercover sting orchestrated by conservative activist James O'Keefe.

Vivian Schiller, the ousted CEO, had also come under fire in recent months for NPR's firing of conservative commentator Juan Williams last October.

The only Williams could be considered "conservative" is either 1) you're so far left that "merely left" is "de facto conservative," or 2) his working for Fox News now automatically makes him a boogeyman (aka "conservative").

I agree wholeheartedly with your point (which is somehow lost on ABC news and other sundry MSM types). But on the other hand, I do wonder if Fox News is starting to rub off on Juan Williams. I've occasionally seen him on Hannity in debate format, representing the liberal point of view, but his positions are sounding more and more perfunctory, almost obligatory. I am starting to wonder if he really believes it any more.
