    Difference is HBO after a certain hour doesn't care what people say. Her sponsors on the other hand do care and so she was fired. This has nothing to do with her 1st amendment rights because they weren't taken away. It has to do with her not being able to taking responsibility for what she said.

    So conservatives are just as guilty of this as liberals are.
    That is just not true.
    A tit on the super bowl is not the same as the Right monitoring the Left just looking for something they can use against them. Do you have proof it was just Conservatives making a stink. I tend to believe it was a collection of people especially parents who were offended. You don't expect to see bare breasts when you're watching the super bowl with your kids. Well, maybe now you do.
    Name me one time a conservative has said someone should just be shut down.
    The left does it all the time.
    On journolist they were discussing what it would take to shut down Fox. Hell, I think they were suggesting the government should go in and just do it or something like that. If that's not a bunch of liberals trying to silence speech, I don't know what is.
    If you liberals expect to keep your first amendment rights you need to start standing up to this craziness instead of applauding it.

    She's a hypocritical **** who has no comprehension of how the Constitution works. Dot.

    If one of her callers whined like that, she'd make fun of them and then hang up on them.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    And I'm not talking about the companies that employ people. I'm simply talking about those discussing the issue. Dr. Laura is dragged through the mud for NOT calling someone the n-word, but explaining that people DO say it over and over and over again on HBO, but those who actually CALL SOMEONE the n-word are deemed as hilarious by some. I don't get it.

    No, it's called being vigilant in our duty to protect the first amendment.

    The first amendment is not at issue here. In fact, I can't remember any case off the top of my head where some one had their first amendment rights trampled. Perhaps you can give some examples.

    So, of course, you're completely behind the effort by muslims to build a mosque near ground zero, right? Because, of course, you wouldn't want the government to infringe on the free practice of their beliefs. Right?
