This is NOT a free speech issue. The government did not restrict his speech in any way.
This is an employment performance issue. Jay’s employer didn’t like the way he was doing his job. Jay’s employer is not required by any law to let him say anything he wants on their radio signal.
Unless Jay has a contract requiring the station to allow him to say whatever he wants on the air, this is a simple matter of the employer deciding to change the content of the show during those hours.
You’re right. Employer bowed to PC pressure. They’ll probably replace him with someone less controversial which will probably make their ratings decline. But at least they did the “right” thing in the eyes of the political elite. Liberals imposing their version of the fairness doctrine.
Did the fruitcake that ripped Ms. California lose his job yet? Just wondering.
