    now you can include among your cohort of supporters the westboro church, which has announced its intent to picket A&E. that should make you very proud of such an association
    kind of like A&E being proud of its association with phil robertson
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    A&E surely realized this from the beginning. They rode the Duck train as long as they could.

    I think the issue could have been avoided if the interviewer hadn't set him up. He HAD to know how Robertsin was going to answer the question and if he did, he shouldn't have asked the question.

    The Libbos might want to temper their outrage. The Duck Dynasty vote has already gotten one United States congressman elected. It would suck for the Libbos if every single member of theDuck block voted against a Democrat, because of the way the Libbos treated Phil Robertson.

    Making a big deal out of this is a bad business decision for A&E and a bad political move for the Libbos.
    a) why wouldn't the interviewer ask these kinds of questions? To spare Robertson from having to answer? that's not being a good interviewer

    b) From reading the GQ article, it sounds like Robertson just rambles on all day, stream-of-consciousness; don't know that many questions had to be asked. The interviewer said Robertson had no problem if you interrupted his stream of talk and diverted it, but he pretty much expounded on his various themes all the time. I hope you read the full article.

    c) Robertson is free to say what he wants to say. A&E is free to suspend him for that. I don't remember Palin leaping to Bashir's defense when Bashir made not-so-nice comments about Palin. What is different about this case? Oh yeah, Robertson isn't a liberal; conservatives apparently have "more" free speech rights than liberals, according to Fox news and such....

    d) I watched the show a couple times and didn't see the allure. However, I have nothing against the Robertson family; yea for them for creating a show that so many want to watch. But now that they are media figures, they have to live by the informal rules of the media - or if they don't want to, their business may suffer. Or may not.

    While you blame this all on liberals, do you yourself really agree with his comments? you don't find them at all offensive, even if you don't think they merit suspension? is there no conservative out there who can say "He can say what he wants, but I found his comments offensive too?"

    It got him a million or more fans, I really wasnt a fan of the show that much. Not really a hunter, but I hate it when a persons 1A rights and livelyhood are threatened by the very people that demand tolerance and understanding.

    "freedom of speech" isn't just for speech you agree with.
