    Probably, does not mean, definitely.


    Then we have A&E's responsibility in this, as they were present during the interview.
    They did not intercede, so it must have been fine by their standards.

    They would have a tough time explaining their actions if this was taken to court.
    You can't be ok with it when it is done and then turn around and cite a violation of a moral clause because some extremists come along and played the homophobe card.
    We're also told that the contracts have morality clauses that give the network the right to get rid of cast members -- but the others still have to keep the show running.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Not according the liberal Fox News. Read above.

    Or consider Fox News. You know how they hate conservatives.

    And again.
    No such clause was posted.

    All you have are assertions based on assumptions.

    Myself, I believe they exist in this case as they are the norm (that is an assumption), yet I can not say for certain because it has not been provided.

    So again.
    No such clause has been posted.

    You may be right about the contract, but whats to stop the others from showing up and just sitting in front of the cameras and drinking ice tea, or just talking among themselves about cutting the grass, or just picking their noses and talk about who has the biggest bugger.
    I confess, I did it, I let the dogs out.

    I know. Fox hates conservatives, so they are making it up. Sure.

    Not much. But that would likely end the show. There's no law requiring they stay employed.
