Well, the Food Network will never be the same again! Yes, Paula Dean allegedly made racist remarks which prompted the Food Network to not renewing her contract.

This will be a big loss for the Food Network! Because, Paul Dean drew millions & millions of viewers. Paula Dean has become an icon with her down home family oriented southern cooking show! And, I suspect, this will infuriate millions of viewers who will never watch the Food Network again.

Yes, Paula Dean has been (from the beginning) one of the heavy-hitters on the Network - along with several other well-know cooks & chefs.

Emeril Lengazie (not sure about spelling of his name) was the first super-star chef - which actually put the Food Network on the map. And of course, he is now gone.

I guess the Food Network will just put one more trash show like "Cup Cake Wars" or some other "Chopped" show on to fill the void Paula will leave.

I predict - The Food Network's glory days are behind them as their ratings go down, down down...

I wonder how many of the self-righteous leadership at the Food Network are guilty of the same at one-time-or-another in their life.

Rap singers say the N word in their songs.
Media says nothing. Paula Deen admits she said the N word years ago, and the media demolishes her because of who she is.

Gene,
Yes, and just look at all the RACIAL SLURS (by very prominent Republicans)- and all the right-wing media - that OBAMA HAS HAD TO ENDURE since (and before) he became president.

WHY IS IT THAT NOT ONE OF THESE REPUBLICANS OR LIMBAUGH, BECK, FOX, HANNITY OR THE REST OF THE RIGHT-WING PROPAGANDA MACHINE HAD NOT BEEN TAKEN TO TASK FOR RACIAL SLURES TO THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES???

SOMETHING IS VERY VERY VERY WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE...

So, you're insuating that all other networks except FOX's ratings are going down???

Well, let me set you straight - CNN , CNBC & MSNBC are in business of reporting news & also making viewers aware of lies coming form the Republican party and the right-wing media.

FOX NEWS & THE REST OF THE RIGHT-WING MEDIA ARE IN THE BUSINESS OF ENTERTAINMENT - THEY ARE NOT RELIABLE NEWS SOURCES.

Yes, people flock to shows that will entertian them - FOX fills that bill by constantly being on the attack of the Democratic party. Yes, lot's of people like to hear Fox villify Democrats - this same calibar of people usually like good fight & wrestling matches.

Yes, Fox's ratings remain high - BUT TV/RADIO RATINGS DON'T MEAN SQUAT at the ballot box - as we've seen in the last two presidential elections...

I don't know Paula Dean, Don't watch the Food Network and Don't know if she used the N word or not.

I do have a good fry pan sold under her name. I've cooked up some great fried chicken in it. Works good for thin and crispy corn bread too.

Thanks Paula...

Back in the 60's when Paula D says she uttered the N word, it was common practice. Even now when blacks are mad at each other, they call each other the N word. We have all learned and know that it is not acceptable now but back then it was acceptable. What about blacks calling whites "Honkies" or "Crackers"? Who gets in trouble for that?

It has little to do with what she said back then and a lot to do with the bad publicity she brought on herself and her employer.

Any employer can fire you for this.

For example...If you get arrested for whatever and the news reports who you are employed with then that is grounds for termination.

In other words if you do something that makes your employer look bad even after work hours you can be dismissed.

I don't think the Food Network would have lost a dime if they had kept her on but I do believe they will lose firing her. She has a great big following. It will hurt their business more than it will hurt hers.

Comrade,
You've got to be kidding!!! There have been so instances of Republican politicians & the right wing- media making VERY UGLY RACIAL SLURS ABOUT PRESIDENT OBAMA - way too many to remember. You're just trying to cloud the issue by putting ME on the defense - BUT I REFUSE TO FALL INTO YOUR TRAP!

Every poster on this forum knows this is true - both DEMOCRAT & REPUBLICAN! No, I don't owe you an answer to your stupid question.
Because your question doesn't even deserve an answer!

I fail to see what Paula Deen's firing has to do with Democrats or Republicans.

You people need therapy.

Because they're afraid that rather than racial slurs they will call hi what he really is (that would be the M word)
