    Oh so now you're back pedalling and making out like you didn't say EXACTLY what you said above.

    I understand completely why you would attempt that.

    It's a ****ing tweet, not an article for the Harvard Law Review.
    Formally or informally, the first amendment refers to government actions. This has exactly nothing to do with the first amendment.

    I, for the record, can't stand her. But I'm also not gonna complain that she's a bitch when she acted like a bitch. You don't play with a scorpion and then wonder why it stung you.
    When I heard the actual recording, I actually thought to myself "What the **** did this dumb broad expect Dr. Furburger to say, anyway?"

    Well you go and tell that to the vast majority of the nation who use the term as a catch all for their right to speak freely.

    Actually, no, I'm not. She exercised poor judgement on air. When the **** flew, as a result, she claimed that her first amendment rights were violated. That isn't taking ownership of one's personal choices.

    She acted like a moron and got burned. Welcome to the world of corporate broadcasting. Actions have consequences.

However, in common language, First Amendment Rights is a perfect catch all to relate, succinctly, how she feels a violation against her right to speak freely.

    As RightinNYC said...I am pretty sure most intelligent people understood she didnt mean it literally.
    I would agree with you if it was the government. It wasn't it was her sponsors that disagreed with what she was saying so they dropped her. If she had said it once or twice then I would have her back in saying that it is kind of silly. But to me saying it eleven times in five minutes, even if trying to make a point, is a bit excessive.

    She was completely misrepresented by several influential spin organizations. Now she is suffering publically and financially. That's an attack on her right to speak freely, even if it didn't come from the government.

    She owned it. She apologized. She also made certain to point out where the spin took place. That's also personal responsibility.
