NPR host’s involvement in Occupy D.C. leads to her firing from another show | The Cutline - Yahoo! News

Free lancer Lisa Simeone,for NPR fired because she's taken part in OWS. NPR host’s involvement in Occupy D.C. leads to her firing from another show | The Cutline - Yahoo! News NPR justifies the firing -- I don't get it. NPR seems full of it. Article ends with a spin that "it's also true" that:
this is not Simeone's first stint as an activist. In 1994, Simeone helped organize demonstrations outside a Baltimore courthouse to protest violence against women.

Insinuating that she's just up to no good.

Simeone confirmed on Thursday that she had been fired from the "Soundprint" show; NPR is "in conversations" about her role as both "World of Opera" host and Occupy D.C. protester.

"We recently learned of World of Opera host Lisa Simeone's participation in an Occupy D.C. group," NPR communications SVP Dana Davis Rehm wrote in a memo to affiliates. "We're in conversations with WDAV about how they intend to handle this. We of course take this issue very seriously.
