    You must not have looked too hard- it was all over the morning major networks. I saw it on ABC's 'Good Morning America'....

    Dunno, I haven't watched A & E in years. But I do know that TV shows come and go. Tastes in entertainment change and A & E was strong before this show and will be solid after. The fantasy that A & E will crash and burn without this show is just that "fantasy" Most who turns off A & E today because of this will be tuning in to them down the road, sure thing.

    Gotta be more committed.

    I still won't gas up at a Citgo, even though that bastard is dead - may he burn in hell.

    I don't see what all the hub-bub is about....

    My understanding:

    A&E felt that Phil's comments weren't in line with the image A&E wanted to portray for comments he made in an interview with GQ.

    The suspended him.

    My thoughts:

    Phil is entitled to his opinion.

    A&E took DD on their network knowing opinions of the people involved in DD.

    A&E shouldn't be surprised about the comments he made off the show.

    Phil shouldn't be surprised at A&E's reaction.

    A&E has profited from DD and that removing Phil is, at least somewhat, hypocritical.

    There will be some consequence for their decision to remove him in the form of public backlash, but a month from now most will have forgotten.

    Having said that, Phil knew there were going to be consequences to his actions and chose to make the statement he made anyway. Good for him for standing up for what he believes.

    A&E feels that Phil does not represent the image that they want to portray and they are fully within their right to remove him.

    As much as everyone wants to claim that this will hurt A&E in the end I think it's a wash at worst and I think the situation could be salvaged to A&E's benifit....

    First, for every Redneck Christian viewer they lose, they'll gain someone from the LGBT community who heard about what A&E did and will flock to the network to find programming that caters to them.

    I mean a Redneck show on Arts and Entertainment?

    My prediction is A&E will sell the rights to the show for mega bucks to a network that caters to rednecks like CMT (Country Music TV network). That's a match made in heaven and I bet CMT would fork out the bucks to get the rights. I would think anyone that watches DD will appreciate this as the members of the show are less likely to have their Christian references edited out of the show...

    A&E could take the bucks and make shows that cater to it's growing LGBT audience, thanks to this debacle.

    Other than this, did A&E really do something wrong?

    Me either.
    Maybe since the war on Christmas is winding down, aggrieved Christians need something else to snivel about?

    No, it's their network and Robertson works for them.
    No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.

    Ok, I have seen the light. I love and support the 1.4 million who have rallied and shown their support towards an individual who made hateful and bigoted statements about gays. Bravo!

    No, they did nothing wrong - just like MSNBC, Chick-Fil-A, and other institutions did nothing wrong when they decided to perform actions against someone that didn't follow their goals and mission statements. They all made business decisions - that's it.

    it shows the left.... , have no tolerance at all, for anything that they disagree with.
