Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

Phil and the rest could give two ****s whether A&E has a show or not. In fact, I'm sure they're tired of being followed around. They are already wealthy, don't need the income. However A&E is a different story - they NEED the show. Their other big bread winners are slowly dying, but this show keeps rising in the ratings.
A&E is desparately looking for a way to cave without looking like they've caved. Better believe some producers will lose their jobs over this.
It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.
