There are several possible outcomes from this imbroglio:
- Juan Williams gets a better job. Done: he's accepted a full time role at Fox News that came with a considerable raise.
- NPR loses it's government funding. I think this would be great, but it's not likely. By the time Congress could act on this, the fervor will have all but died down. Dang it!
- NPR's incredibly under-qualified CEO could lose her job. This seems likely to me, if there's any justice in the world.
- NPR could fire a bunch of its other
propagandistsjournalists, in order to appear fair to Juan Williams. Unlikely, I think. More likely: these journalists will start looking for other work, feeling at risk after Juan Williams' treatment.
