    Dont care. She is meaningless to me. She is nothing but an opinion-yapper. Her title doesnt make her right or wrong either.

    Did the government say she could not say something? If not, the no, she did not lose her first amendment rights and looks particularly stupid.

    Go ahead and say the N word all you want, but don't expect the radio station to actually want you on the air afterward.
    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.

    I very much doubt she meant that literally.

    I think she may have just felt too restricted in her speech. We do seem to be getting more and more PC.

    I dunno. She did blame Eliot's philandering on his wife. WOW.

    Anywho, she's wrong on using the word "lost." Agreeing to work in the job she did entails that she gives up some rights of speech on air. She freely gave those up. Lost implies that such rights were taken from her by some form or fashion without her consent. She gave up the rights under her own free will. That's not lost.

    Then why didn't she say that? She specifically referenced her first amendment rights. Either she thinks the first amendment means something other than it does, or she was engaging in useless rhetoric. Either way, she comes off looking foolish.
