    While Boo takes a break to repair his battle-damage, check ou this article that slams A&E for their "rookie mistakes". It echoes what I've been saying all along: this is a baaaaad business move on A&E's part.

    How do you suppose A&E is going to enforce the contractual obligations?

    Sue the Robertsons? First off, they would deal with the revenue loss and spend a ton of money in court. Second, it would be a PR disaster, what with a buncha millionare, fancy pants, suit-n-tie TV honchos from Hollywood pickin' on America's favorite family. A&E sueing the Robertsons because they simply want to express their religious views? That's going to go over like a turd in a punch bowl.

    Let's say the Robertsons give in and do the show and sabotage the crap out of it on set; give negative interviews off set.

    The only option they have is to bury the hatvhet with Phil and hope it all goes away.

    Although they almost never substantiate their assertions, they always insist that the citations we provide to call them on their BS are either biased or not detailed enough. They always have some excuse why the source is not convincing. Ironic, since Grant, Excon and Grant rarely provide citations for the things they claim.

    Thats their issue and not mine.

    And there's no court.

    Watch how easy this is with Boo's own words in a post on this very page....
