    Dix Chicks went to a foreign country and trashed our pres, that rubbed her fans the wrong way and they didn't want to hear them on the radio anymore and stopped buying their music. This is night and day as to what happened to the journalist.

    Incorrect.

    The journalist in question was hired specifically to provide a conservative point of view. He behaved unprofessionally, both in the past and in the incident.

    There are also huge numbers of journalists who criticize the President every single day, with no fear of being fired.

    Your partisan blinders loom large on your face.


    Phil Donahue. Don't remember? Probably because all the "liberal" media didn't hardly touch the story. I'll let Hannity, someone I'm sure you are more comfortable with, show you in his interview with Phil:

    SEAN HANNITY (co-host): What happened at MSNBC?

    DONAHUE: Well, we were the only antiwar voice that had a show, and that, I think, made them very nervous. I mean, from the top down, they were just terrified. We had to have two conservatives on for every liberal. I was counted as two liberals.

    HANNITY: You have the force of two liberals.

    DONAHUE: I mean, you know, it's a shame, you know? Now, we were replaced by Michael Savage, and now they have Chuck [sic: Joe] Scarborough. And by the way, I wish them all well. A lot of the people who worked for me, incidentally, a wonderful crowd of very young, bright people who worked for me, some of whom have now matriculated to other programs on MSNBC. So I want them to do well, but I certainly wasn't -- it was a very, very unhappy time for me.

    HANNITY: You felt mistreated? You felt mistreated?

    DONAHUE: Well, we were very -- I was isolated, and we were very alone at the end. And then we had nobody supporting us, and our numbers were very decent. We weren't Elvis, but we were often the best number --

    HANNITY: You were the highest-rated show on the network.

    DONAHUE: Yes. And we were told to leave.

The Right knows they are Inherent Rights granted by our Creator and the Bill of Rights was to keep government from taking them away

    the Constitution isn't an enabling document is was written as a limiting document
    Awesome. When logic fails, blame God.
