    Do you think Olbermann should have been let go?

    I think that is entirely MSNBC's decision. To be honest, I don't know why he was let go or what the controversy is, I just don't care enough.

    from What if

    Slightly off topic, but everyone here is aware that the Citizens United decision was all about preventing boycotts based on political contributions, right?

    If corporations are "persons", and money is "speech", then it seems it would follow that boycotts are "speech" as well.
    CU is the Dred Scot decision of our era. It is interesting that in 1857, the SC ruled that a person is property without rights. A century and a half later, the SC rules that property is a person with rights. We have fallen so far down the rabbit hole that we should be eating chow mein for dinner and it will not be foreign food.

    Ah, but you obviously care more about Beck. So, can I conclude that if it is a liberal whack job, then you really don't pay attention, but if that voice comes from the right you're all over it?

    I think that you should avoid concluding. You seem to lack this skill.

    I don't think the average liberal whackjob's voice is loud enough to matter to me, but we deal with Glenn Beck's slavering zombie followers daily on DP (see this thread). I would care less about Glenn Beck if his followers weren't so annoying.

    It's basically how I feel about BYU football.

    Actually no. I got pulled into this thread for reasons other than interest, and saw statements I felt I needed to reply to. Whether Beck gets fired or not is entirely FOX's decision, and I won't lose sleep over it either way. Mostly I have just been correcting some misunderstandings of capitalism.

    Excuse me Redress, but why is that comment in double quotation marks?

    I'd love for you to make a new topic thread of this as I'd like to debate you on the accuracy of it as an analogy. Here though, beyond a mere passing observation, it's way off-topic.

    And I think you should avoid this sort of elitism you show here. It makes you look petty and small.

    Ah, so voices of opinion that disagree with yours annoy you....Seek help.

    I told you Ailes was a sharp cookie. He knows his business and won't let some jerk bamboozle him.
