Come on

Fox News's Facebook page asks "Should Paul Krugman be fired for his comments in the New York Times?"

Er, uh, whaaaaat?? Like, why?

Hey, I, like many others, thought that Krugman's column yesterday was a pathetic POS, but why should he be fired for it? The column is not even out of the ordinary for him, and his views are pretty much in line with the publication for which he works.

It was offensive, yes. But that's what "freedom of speech" is all about. It's easy to protect speech everyone likes; the challenge is allowing unpopular views to be aired. If Krugman should be fired for his comments -- and remember, he is paid to do just that, offer his opinion -- then that would send a chilling signal to freedom lovers across the land.

Krugman is an ass, but I don't think he should be fired either. Its good enough for me that the New York Times and other media that promotes his kind of crap are struggling more every day to survive in a country that is seeing them more and more for the propagandist shills for the liberal establishment that they really are and are going elsewhere for their information.
