    Suspended. For horribly insensitive comments about blacks and gays. He's still employed.

    TV is about branding. You cannot have an outstanding name if the person who represents you has taken Robertson's approach to speaking to the media.

    Bingo.

    That reason would be airing feces-laden shows like Duck Dynasty in the first place.
    If that's your concern, then Waste Management inc. should be taking over MSNBC.

    If I owned a company that had a publicly known spokesman for my product/s doing TV commercials and/or promotional tours and that individual gave an interview, publicly making misogynistic, racist and/or bigoted statements, then that spokesmen would no longer be representing my company/products.

    Here is the video. Where?

    If he has said any such thing, and they hired him with this being out there, it was known in advance of his hiring what his opinion was.
    They are then acting negligently towards him, especially as it was a false representation of a comment he made.

    They're idiots, but I support their right to boycott.

    Essentially, the same opinion I had for those stupid loudmouths who boycott Chick-Fil-A.

    You'd be wrong. Since the premier of Duck Dynasty A&E viewership rose 17%, almost entirely on the backs of that one show.

    People don't need to boycott A&E really. If the family walks away from A&E and Duck Dynasty goes off the air then the channel will drop back into obscurity on it's own.

    I remember the bp spill and I told myself I'd never get bp gas again.

    I'll be the first to admit I'm not good with boycotts. Lol I pulled up to a bp has station and though oh **** it's a bp, then I said **** it and went inside and paid for some gas. I'm horrible.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Duck Dynasty didn't make A & E and this show won't break A & E one way or the other. They'll be just fine. And if their overall ratings some how do drop(doubt it)it will be temporary as people have short memories, and it won't take the TV viewing masses long to find some other celluloid controversy to display their fauxrage over.

    What else is on A&E that gets ratings even close to Duck Dynasty?
