9. Lou Dobbs show said it starts next Monday... is that really right??


If so, how on earth would that work? Maybe Lou had bogus info?

I agree though.. a 2-week suspension sounds like a petty slap on the wrist.

14. A quest on Lou said there's been over 10,000 letters sent in asking for that..

.. She said they want MSNBC to "do the right thing"!

I'll have to check Lou's show transcript later.. I can't recall her name.

20. Yeah, really...

Very unfortunate that he not only stuck up for him 110%, but he it was a virtual (disgusting) love-fest of an interview.

What a shame.

19. I am AMAZED at how many people are defending this guy
I can't stand what he said and knowing his history, he needs to be retired .... on his own or by corporate fiat.

I'm thinking that if enough people keep talking about this, it coujld well have an impact on his future.

On the OTHER hand, maybe this is a chance to change the fundamental nature and fundamental guest list for his program.

And fer krissakes, no matter what, get those fucking assholes he surrounds himself with OFF the air now.

Personally, I want him gone now.
