You are correct on that.  I missed that problem in the column and that point 
in Chuck's earlier post.  Johnson should have attributed the comments to a 
source of some kind or clearly labeled the item as opinion or analysis.  I 
accept the point that he should have been more careful about his wording but 
I still think the item and what he included is fair game.  If you don't want 
people speculating about your future in a public forum then don't become a 
public figure.  If you want job stability, get a job outside of radio.
