ANSWER #1 of 2

Everyone seems to misunderstand what freedom of speech means. It means the GOVERNMENT cannot stop you from voicing your opinion in certain things (unless of course you are inciting violence or causing panic). That does not mean that there are no consequences for things you say. If a professor stood in class and voiced racist remarks, you bet your butt that professor would be fired. If a tv host makes a sexist comment, same thing goes. Sorry, you cannot speak whatever you want without consequences. That's not how life works.

This guy could go out on the street and say what ever he wants to anyone who will listen. That doesn't mean his employer has to accept it. They have every right to expect proper behavior from their on-air commentators.
