Let’s Cut Through the “He’s Suspended” BS, Shall We?
MILLIONAIRE TV STAR INSULTS GAY PEOPLE AND IMPLIES THAT NON-CHRISTIANS ARE INHERENTLY MURDEROUS, APPARENTLY KEEPS HIS JOB
If we’re going to talk about Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty, let’s start by remembering something: Martin Bashir actually lost his job at MSNBC. So did Alec Baldwin. A decade ago, Dan Rather really lost his job at CBS, and effectively lost his career with it.
Phil Robertson, a man for whom the right is crying a river of tears, actually hasn’t lost his job, and isn’t even being taken off the air:
A&E has placed Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson on indefinite hiatus following anti-gay remarks he made in a recent profile in GQ….
He’ll likely appear in season four, which bows Jan. 15, since production is largely wrapped….
Oh. So if new episodes featuring Phil are already in the can and will begin airing next month, and filming for the season is nearly complete, how significant is this “hiatus”?
