    Actually, you must have got distracted because this thread was about the first ammendment.

    It may have started that way, but then you and Tex decided to play the "race card".

    The first amendment, by the way, says that the government will not impede rights of free speech. Advertisers have never been subject to that requirement and have imposed their own standards of decency on the programs they support since the earliest days of broadcasting. No first amendment rights are involved. Many here are quick to point out that calls for fairness and balance in broadcasting are nothing more or less than a leftist effort to impose limits on Rush. FOX, and the other true believers. I have no problem with Beck broadcasting his meandering mindless musings, and I have no problem with people that choose to listen. I also have no problem with people who refuse to purchase products from his advertisers and no problem if his show is canceled for lack of financial support and he is forced to do something else to earn his minimum wage of $30 million/year. All of those activities are consistent with the first amendment and crocodile tears do not impress me.

    I think Obama is one of the least racist people I have ever seen in a public position.
    I'm not so sure of that. If he is 1/2 white and 1/2 black, why does he choose to mostly refer to himself as an African-American?

    And he definitely played the color card in his campaign.

    And he was quick to call the Cambridge police stupid, before he knew all the facts (by his own admission).

    And, yes, I actually know somebody who voted for O and cited to me that McCain was not a US citizen because he was born in Panama. If one person had that influence them, there are likely others.

    I would agree that the advertisers are free to pull their ads. The organized group that encouraged them is also entitled to free speech.

    After all have had their chance to speak, we make our decision as to who may be most accurate in their view.

    Roger......you're as looney as a $2 bill......surely your posting that video was tongue in cheek....if not you are drinking some serious kool-aid.

    Anybody in their right mind can see that context was in jest.

    Are you referring to me? WHAT race card?

    Explain how you think Beck is one of the most racist people you've ever seen?

    Of course it should be on the air. That is what the first ammendment is all about. It doesn't say that we have the freedom of speech as long as nobody is offended.

    Perhaps they just don't want the truth exposed...
    I agree with you 100%. Beck has the right to say what he wants, short of yelling "fire" in a movie theatre. But its not government censorship if enough people are turned off by him that they write or quit patronizing his sponsors, and they decide to pull the plug on him. That's the people exercising their rights to buy or not to buy from his sponsors.

    This is the same as when Imus made the comments about the girls basketball team. (which I don't think he intended as racist, but public opinion said otherwise)

    If Beck gets canned because the free market spoke out, and can no longer justify his airtime based on market analysis, that's America.
