A&E chooses profits over gays, Duck Dynasty over GLAAD -- Washington Times
A&E's sudden turnaround on Phil Robertson and "Duck Dynasty" should have surprised no one. "Duck Dynasty" is the most popular program on A&E, the second most watched program on cable television after AMC's "The Walking Dead." The show's fans were furious at the suspension, and A&E was immediately faced with the choice of kneecapping itself, or outraging GLAAD and people who don't watch the show anyway ...
The show's fans make up a pathetic minority of Americans. It will be interesting to see if the fad hangs on.

If it has more in numbers in fans than gays I'd say it's more than a fad, Lides.

GLBTs also make up a "pathetic" 3.5 percent minority of the US population, which is probably why A&E reversed itself, outraging GLAAD and the rest of the gay alphabet who probably don't even watch its most popular and lucrative show.

They SUSPENDED HIM. The suspension is over now.

If you want to manufacture some mythic moral victory out of this be my guest.I like watching you behave like a loon.

Happy New Year

Will you be joining the rest of us in 2014 and the new millenium or will you still stay stuck in the mythic past?

SUSPENDED HIM from what?

Phil Robertson didn't miss shooting a single episode of Duck Dynasty before his so-called "suspension" was over!

And yet, supporters make up a majority of the population.

Once again, we'll see how long this redneck fad lasts.

So what. The point is he wasn't fired so to claim so what "victory" occurred?
Once again the religious right wingnuts are grasping at straws and you a gleefully following the lemmings.

So what was Robertson suspended from when he didn't miss a day's shooting of A&E's Duck Dynasty?

The only thing that failed was A&E's so-called suspension of Phil Robertson.

After A&E crunched the numbers of GLBTs, Robertson was back from his "suspension" after missing 0 shows.

This was also an epic failure for GLAAD, which will think twice before trying to intimidate another TV network into bowing to its gay demands.
