Better question: does anyone here even watch The View?

For the record, I'm against any self-appointed moral quality control experts trying to have anyone fired from TV or radio shows because the person in question seems to offend them. That includes the idiots Rush Limbaugh and Don Imus in case anyone is wondering, but this thread is not about those buffoons.

Leave Rosie alone and get on with more important things. Hey, maybe her PR people are behind that petition.

Ditto Stampeder.

If you don't like Rosie, don't watch.

My TVs come with an off switch. I don't like something - I use it!

What is that number supposed to tell us? Its at 71,036 as of this writing, which means an insignificant trickle (276 signatories per hour) by Internet standards. And then there's this jewel on the petition's main masthead:

Who says that "Hugh Jass" and "Seymour Butz" aren't real people?

I say leave Rosie and her big yap alone, turn the dial and watch something else. Ditto for Imus and guys like him / worse than he is.

I would like to see a survivor series with Rosie, Oprah, the Donald and Imus.....or instead of Imus maybe Jerry Springer....

It could be at the north pole in January.....

Considering that "The View" has had a ratings increase since Rosie joined, I doubt that any petition would have any effect.

I believe that "The View" is the only ABC daytime show that is increasing its audience size.

That's why I think Rosie's PR people are behind this.

I do watch the view and would eliminate Barbara WaWa before Rosie and then get rid of Elizabeth, the George Bush supporter. The ratings are up and the advertisers are generaly happy......judging by the number of product give-a-ways. Barbara is from the old school whose time has come and passed.

Rosie should be allowed to say what she wants. It is free speach. If I don't like it, I won't watch. In my opinion, Imus did a lot less, but Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson used it to get themselves into the media and promote censorship. Bring back Imus!
