    -----would you sue NPR for firing you for violating their policies?

    I would not at all. I would look at it as something bigger and better for me is just waiting to happen. I also would not want the stress of a lawsuit with my newly-found freedom to be weighing on my mind. I also would think that NPR would get theirs, so to speak and I would have nothing to do with it but laugh all the way to the bank....:eusa_clap:

    I'd just let it go.

    The heads of NPR are doing enough damage all by themselves.

    Exactly!!! It's weird, when you do wrong to others, how that comes right back on you, speaking generally.

    He should sue for breach of contract, if his attorney thinks it's winnable, yes.

    He signed a 2 million dollars contact with FOX right after it happened, so he'll be ok. While NPR firing him was BS it's not like Juan is hurting, and I think the coverage that the incident is producing is showing everyone what NPR is really about.

    If he sues, that will just be petty.

    Let them stew in their own sanctimony.

    Why not, if he has a case.

    People in the media have clauses in their contract that allow them to be dismissed for any behavior that their employer feels reflects poorly on them. It's called the "moral clause"
