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.
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:
This is not a legal document. We understand the petition can easily be frauded and the identity of each individual signee can never be verified.
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!
