Was The Atlantic right to fire Kevin Williamson?
Less than a month after hiring conservative writer Kevin Williamson, The Atlantic fired him in the face of intense backlash. Critics of Williamson point to his controversial stances, including his notion that women who have abortions should be "hanged," and believe his incendiary language shouldn't be allowed into the mainstream. However, many have questioned Williamson's firing, citing his contributions to public dialogue and arguing that his termination amounts to an effort to silence conservative voices in the media.
