What Do You Think?

 A friend of mine posted this on her  Facebook page and I told her that I thought she, and whoever started this, were trying to restrict free speech on the Discovery Channel.  She disagreed, saying that Sarah Palin didn't match the environmental outlook of the Discovery Channel and they shouldn't run a program about her.
I asked if she knew what was on the Discovery Channel, think Swamp Loggers, The Big Catch, even Mythbusters where they're shooting up pig carcus's all the time.
I then discovered that the Sarah Palin's Alaska is actually going to be on TLC (part of the Discovery Channel family of stations)  the channel that brought us Jon and Kate Plus 8 which I told her was even worse than a program about Sarah Palin.
Now I'm no fan of Sarah Palin but writing into the Discovery Channel to keep her off is wrong, definitely a violation of free speech.  What do you think?

  1. I think we show our dislike of the program or of Sarah Palin by not watching it. Unfortunately, there will probably be plenty of other people watching. I've seen enough of her and her under-educated family. You betcha!

  2. I find Sarah Palin unworthy of the media attention she and her family have been given--I'd be happy not to see her face again or hear her dreadful mangling of the English language, but----I suppose the producers of various tv shows must figure she's hot stuff. I agree that we can only boycott the programs where she appears. {For the record, I'm a Republican insofar as I'm interested in politics, but I think she's a scary choice for too many reasons!}

  3. If the Republicans nominate her I will not vote for the first time in my life, we've already elected a President who is incompetent we don't need another one.
