Yes, like the Univision presenter fired over the Michelle Obama comment

Yes, and it's all the fault of the liberals, damn them to hell and back!
No, in cases of possible racism firing is appropriate
No, Clarkson was fired for the right reasons, violence against a producer. Violence is unacceptable.
No, like in the Honey Boo Boo case they did it for the right reasons
No, this is not the liberals but the right of companies to protect their image.

11 Liberal Rules for Racism in America
Obama is a clown in blackface. Oops! I misspoke. My bad.
Top Gear existed before Clarkson and when he became a presenter there it was a dull factual show focused on reviewing cars. Clarkson and his producer together made changes that made the show popular. The shows is now a comedy show with a bit of car review dotted here and there.
That's the challenge - make a car review show more about reviewing cars (and thus dull) or focus on the satire and interpersonal side of the show which seems to have appealed worldwide.
That said - Top Gear was never popular enough in the UK (even under Clarkson) to make it to BBC1. It's one of those strange phenomena where the show is more popular overseas than at home. If Clarkson goes to commercial telly, the name "Top Gear" stays with the BBC unless it is bought by commercial TV.
I don't see how someone being fired for physically attacking a co-worker falls under the "political correctness" label.
