Dr. Laura announced on Larry King tonight that she
Then... her apology isn't real?
Apparently people who hate the use of the "N word" are a hate group. You know, like those "hate groups" that hate hate groups, or those intolerant hypocrites who refuse to tolerate intolerance.
The few times I've heard her, it was a "Say what?" moment.
Also and probably more important to her station, several b-i-g sponsors have taken their dollars away from the show not only from this latest dust up but from other hateful things she has pronounced on her show.
Don't let the door hit you in the .... on your way out.

Have not heard the 5 min audio...don't really care to. I assume that what is said is accurate since she apologized for it....its time for her to go.
I never was a big fan. We would occasionally hear her when we were on a roadtrip and were looking for something to listen to and she was all we could find. I will say, that I agreed with her take on most calls...as you all have portrayed it....hush up with the whining and take responsibility for your situation and do something positive....those were usually the types of things she would espouse...and I agreed.
Now, it seems like she could take her own advice. Stop whining. Throw yourself on the mercy of your employer, your listeners, your sponsors and let them decide...or, back out, resign and say once again on the way out, "I am sorry. I was wrong. I thank you all for allowing me to do this for 30 yrs."
Just my thoughts.
If the whole clip is listened to.. You'll hear her say she didn't help that woman properly. She goes on to say in that clip on Larry King that people don't want to debate anymore, what they want to do is get rid of you, take your job. They boycott your advertisers and send hate filled emails. She said they were within their right to do that, but what gets her is how they go after her, demand her job and are so hateful. Seems pretty indicative of the world today, even online. People shouting 'tolerance' really don't have it themselves. She apologized, admitted she was wrong.. time to move on but that's not good enough anymore.
Hmm.. I think she has valid points. I never really learned anything from her show, seems like pretty common sense answers to me.
