    Do you agree with Dr. Laura that she lost her First Amendment rights?

    Yes
    No
    I don't know

    Here is a video showing what she said on Larry King Live:

    Here whole attitude reminds me of people who go on a private forum and than complain when the mods on the forum don't like something against the rules of the forum. Its just idiotic.

    I don't find it humorous. The left has been trying for a long time to shut down talk radio and Fox. I guess it really is true that they only believe in speech that agrees with them. Do you really want to be Venezuala? If not, then you should be condemning people like media matters.
    Yeah, and the right has been trying for a long time to shut down talk radio that isn't Fox. Take, for example, the nipple slip from the Super Bowl. It was conservatives who tried to use the FCC to censor content on radio and television that conservatives found offensive.

    So conservatives are just as guilty of this as liberals are.

    The problem with asking "Who's next?" is that you are setting yourself up for confirmation, regardless of its legitimacy, because there will always be some sort of free speech controversey in this country.

    I was under the impression that Dr. Laura was a strong proponent of personal responsibility for one's actions.

    Irony.

    After hearing more of the clip she may not be a racist but she's an idiot. Of course many of us already knew that. She hasn't lost any rights she just finally went too far. This is not political at all. To say that it is OK to say such an offensive word because some other people say it is just stupid. By that logic everything is OK as long as someone else does it first. If she can't understand the difference between a black comedian saying the word(which I don't really like either) and a friend or co-worker saying it she really is too stupid to be allowed in public alone. It's much like the b-word. Female comedians say it and it can be funny. Tina Fey did a really funny bit on SNL about Hillary Clinton being called a b**** saying , "B****s get things done." This doesn't make that word acceptable in every day conversation. For example, I would tell my boss that she was a b**** who could get things done? If I did say that and got fired would the be a violation of my rights?

    Once again Barb, it wasn't just the use of the word but well, basically how much of a cold-hearted bitch she was that got her off the air and a fundmental misunderstanding of the use of the word. The lady said it over and over again full well knowing that she was going to annoy or offend some people, and she says she wants to have a conversation about it. Ok. Would you want to have a conversation with someone that says a prejudice term like "fag fag fag fag" or "wetback wetback wetback" over and over again, would you even take them seriously after that?

    Also dangerous road? When has anyone ever been against speaking their mind? Ask the neo-cons that are so for freedom of speech what they think of the patriot act and the like. Besides that really what she says I have less problem with as much as the lady continues to come off as the victim and it is so damn obvious that she is going to use that angle to benefit someway or another. I don't know how to listen to her show or where her websites are but I could bet she is doing it right now, and will continue to do it here and there as long as she can.

    I must admit the vast left wing conspiracy to shut out people we don't like is amusing. Yup, we made Dr. Laura lose it on the air. It's all our fault.
