    It was because of his flipping the viewpoint that terrorism was cowardice in comparison to our modern warfighting capabilities. It was not because of Iraq.

    Or, can you show me the government regulation that controls a person writing for a paper that he doesn't own?

    Personally, I think this newspaper is owned by a bunch of pussies, that have no idea what "free press" and "free speech" are really about; they're nothing more than political hacks that happen to own a rag-sheet of a newspaper.
    Good thing no one has said that. What has been said is that you do not have a constitutional right to work at some one else's newspaper, make editorial decisions for some one else's newspaper, determine content at some one else's newspaper. Any newspaper can if they choose not hire some one, can not publish something, can fire employees. Those are all perfectly constitutional.. No one has a right to dictate to an owner of a newspaper what they will publish.

    See, I was right, you where confused.

    Well, you were cursing, insulting people's intelligence, using 'libbo' this and 'libbo' that every other post, questioning if we've read the constitution as if you're some constitutional scholar... what part of that is not immature and partisan?

    That's right, that's a conservative's style of civil discourse. (see what I did there)

    But the masses who subscribe to the newspaper can make clear to the business owner that they do not like what he is doing, and can threaten to make him lose a lot of money. This would then allow the business owner to think to himself, "well, jiminy cricket...I love me some money...and this little opinionated bastard is potentially costing me a lot of money." So he lets opinionated bastard go so he can make sure he gets 'mo money.

    As far as I can tell nobody's suggested that the government can do anything of the sort. They have said that a private newspaper could fire an employee for a controversial headline that could cost them money.

    THAT MAKES NO SENSE in the context of this discussion. Are you saying that everybody has the right to have their opinions in editorial form in any news publication they wish, and it is a violation of their rights if the newspaper doesn't print it because only god may decide what is and is not in a newspaper? Either that's exactly what you're saying, or you are very confused about this issue.

    You call yourself a "libertarian," which I have noticed from your posts you are not. Either way, libertarians have strongly supported at will employment throughout this political era and previous ones. Your viewpoints are so hopelessly mixed up that it's impossible to even know where to start addressing your posts. Another thing about libertarianism - it embraces the idea that consumers will regulate the marketplace themselves. That's what happened here. Yet you have a problem with it? I think it's time you changed your "lean" from Libertarian to Hyper-Partisan Neoconservative.

    The editor should have been fired for such an outrageous Headline for his OpEd. The Presidency deserves more respect than that. Too bad the same standard isn't upheld when it's a Republican President.

    Why would we want him in our ranks? We already have to put up with Horowitz.

    My bad. but he was fired because he disagreed with Bush.

    During a debate about terrorism, Maher disagreed with President George W. Bush‘s characterization of the terrorists as “cowards” — noting that “we” (the U.S. military) have been the cowards for remotely bombing countries while the terrorists stayed in the very planes that crashed into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

    “We have been the cowards, lobbing cruise missiles from 2,000 miles away. That’s cowardly,” Maher said according to transcripts (video below). “Staying in the airplane when it hits the building, say what you want about it, it’s not cowardly,” he concluded.
