The Ducks stay put

I guess when the media moguls at A&E did the math, they realized that “Stupid is as stupid” does, because they are letting the Duck-man back on the show:

Phil Robertson, the patriarch of A&E’s Duck Dynasty clan who was suspended from his hit reality series on Dec. 18 following some incendiary comments about gay people, won’t be put on hiatus after all.

The network and the Robertson family announced Friday that Phil will still be part of the series — and since he didn’t miss any filming, his temporary suspension will have no effect on the upcoming fifth season.

Without that show A&E is dead in the water. It was obvious how this was gonna play out, and the rednecks that the left so loves to hate and make fun of won. HAH! What a smart bunch these progressives are, huh?

Gore v. Olby

Current TV has apparently sacked Keith Olberman after less than a year. This has caused thousand of people to cry, “Wait a minute? Current TV still exists?! Really?!” Really.

Editorially, Countdown had never been better. But for more than a year I have been imploring Al Gore and Joel Hyatt to resolve our issues internally, while I’ve been not publicizing my complaints, and keeping the show alive for the sake of its loyal viewers and even more loyal staff. Nevertheless, Mr. Gore and Mr. Hyatt, instead of abiding by their promises and obligations and investing in a quality news program, finally thought it was more economical to try to get out of my contract.

It goes almost without saying that the claims against me implied in Current’s statement are untrue and will be proved so in the legal actions I will be filing against them presently.

Al Gore v. Keith Olberman? As someone else said on Twitter, whoever loses, America wins.
