Freedom of speech has ONLY to do with government action, not with media coverage. Everyone is free to be an a***e and the government won't interfere. But common human decency should govern what a person says in public, and Robertson is not displaying common human decency! Nuff said...

  I am all for common human decency! My parents taught decency and their lives were examples of decency-----
Ever notice, however, that there are MANY TV personalities without decency?! I have noticed, just in changing channels, there are "entertainers" of both sexes with evil mouths.
Sadly, they have audiences who thrive on vile stuff...they enjoy profanity and obscenities ---- Bill Maher, Howard Stern, Kathy Griffin and many others excel in vulgarity. There is so much of the nasty stuff that the shock has long worn off. Art Linkletter, God rest his kind soul, said he was most disappointed in television "vulgarity"---
Networks never had to bleep Mr. Linkletter's words. He was class!

How I wish decency could be restored in entertainment!

    Yes. I was surprised to read about Melissa Harris Perry's segment regarding the Romney family. I completely agree that that discussion was inappropriate. it isn't about right or left, conservative or liberal, it's about common human decency and kindness. One would think we could all agree in at least that aspect of life.

    My brother and his cohorts defended this fellow's "right" to free speech. I wonder if he is still their hero now that the information about his views on marriage have come to light. (He said men should marry their women while they are young teenagers so that they can train them to be proper wives.) Sounds too much like Warren Jeffs to me.
