Fired for Criticizing American Cars

James Briggs says he was fired by The Daily Telegram of Adrian, Michigan after he wrote in last Saturday's column

"Maybe I'm hitting a late rebellious streak. Maybe I'm simply unpatriotic, ungrateful or un-American,"

"Or maybe the domestic automakers have slipped so far down that purchasing an American vehicle has become moronic. I'll go with that answer."

Briggs says the publisher told him it was "insensitive for me to write such a column given our proximity to the Big Three ". When he refused to apologize for something he believed, Briggs was fired. The publisher says "His account of the events is inaccurate" but refused further comment.
