Please don't get me wrong -- although I am conservative in many ways, I do not share Phil Robertson's views on gays, blacks, etc. I just felt it was pretty ironic that some of the people who very likely were taking Robertson to task for his comments chose to ridicule the Romney family in what seemed to me to be a racist manner.

Also, it's my understanding that although Harris-Perry apologized, the sincerety of it is in question. And I read that some of the panel members refused to apologize because they felt justified in some way to say the things they did.

I just find it so hypocritical -- on both sides of the fence.
First of all Robertson was singling out me and others. and 2nd of all what was said by the MSNBC crew?

And A&E are a bunch of hypocrites because after Dog the Bounty Hunter called black people the N word they still employed him. I think they crave on controversy. Which is a shame because the arts is fading from the Arts and Entertaiment

Controversy is a part of every reality show...and every network LOVES it. Big Brother comes to mind for being the worst offender, but it seems to be pretty much every one of these shows.

As a gay man, I try to just brush this all off. What Phil or others said isn't really how the majority of the world feels and raging about it does nothing except make people look foolish.

Personally, I'm over trash TV in general. Big Brother, yes, this last time in particular was pretty bad. Usually, they have one off comment or two that people go crazy over, but this last year was multiple people. I'm sure it brought in ratings because our dumb downed society likes this kind of thing.

I really could give a crap what some Duck Hunting dude said on trash TV. It's just too bad he has any pulpit at all quite frankly. But alas, that's the country we live in now.

Well said KC <3

Ratings did go down for the return. Another year and we won't remember these people. Lol
