Yes, lets start by firing the congressmen that dipped into the Hush fund.

Why is no one talking about the hush fund in the PoundMeToo age??

Blackface should not be offensive at all. It's just another "feel sorry" for their culture, sorry but it is. Don't recall hearing any issues with the Wayans brothers playing 2 white chicks. Oh probably because it's ok for them to do it, it's ok for them to say N*****, enough of the double standards.

Well they are trying to get out of the contract. Before this they were all ready renegotiations occurring. This was also a prerecorded show meaning plenty of time to kill it if they wanted. In fact they were running re runs anyway until negotiations finished.

Here was her problem shes a conservative and that has little value on that network. So any opinion show she will fail. I tried watching her show i wanted to like it but truth it was bad.

Fallon is somewhat sane. Kimmel and Colbert have much to keep hidden. If Republicans/Trump remain in control, their crimes against other people will eventually be brought to light/exposed.

NBC is a business, involved in a capitalistic, free enterprise and apparently they felt Kelly was a detriment to their bottom line. Megyn would have been fine and allowed to keep her job if she hadn't run her racist mouth on the air.

She makes a habit of being offensive and Fox didn't want her in their organization either. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes!!

If Megyn wants to express her racism she should start her own network like Alex Jones. It's called CAPITALISM, you got a problem with that move to some socialist country where you can be happy!!

Love it or leave it!!

I have yet to see anyone arguing nbc didn’t have the right to fire her

The point is that they are hypocrites and will allow people in their air to do the same “racist” thing Megyn did, only worse because they actually wore black face, because it makes them money

Further proof that charges of racism are meaningless at this point, as they have been so watered down and selectively applied

All about the ratings. She wasn't pulling the numbers so they saw the opportunity and pulled the chord. If Kimmel was sucking in the ratings, he would be one screw up away from the same fate.

Wait so all she said was back in her day it wasnt a problem, with the caveat that they had to be portraying a black character, and they considered that a racist offense and fired her?

Damn, that's messed up. If they wanted to fire her, for low ratings, or because you don't think she is a good fit for your network because of her views, then do so. Don't try to find some cowardly way out as if She did something so unforgiveable that you just Had to grt rid of her. It makes her look like scum and could effect her future employment.

How can they define that as racist? Saying that you remembered things being a certain way during your childhood is racist?

When you are a white person, any old thing can be considered racist.

Again, nobody is saying legal action like "suing" should take place. Quit trying to make us out to be drama queens just to make yourselves feel a little better about being one. Yeah, business is cutthroat, you're allowed to be a hypocrite, we get that! We can still call out their reasoning as total nonsense while still standing up for their right to do it. That's the American way.

I think you just enjoy being difficult. Do you think her comment was racist?
Or was it just "racial"? (whatever the heck that means...)

Edit- Nevermind, I see you have condemned her entire mouth as "racist". It's not that I had any hope that you would use common sense, I just wanted to see if you would make a fool of yourself by taking it that far.

"Wait a minute, you mean to tell me she actually said that, at one time she remembered people wearing blackface for Halloween with no negative consequences? Well Damn her for having and sharing that memory which many other people also remember and shared! Damn her to heck! She shoulda kept her racist mouth shut..."


White people CANNOT wear blackface. White people have NEVER been allowed to wear blackface.

Oceania is at war with Eastasia. Oceana has ALWAYS been at war with Eastasia.

They could've just said "the show was bad."

But they saw an opportunity to once again smear the conservatives as a bunch of racists.

You have the audacity to say racism is meaningless after some rightwing hatefilled man murders 12 Jewish people in a Synagogue hate crime, includeing little kids. You don't think that was racist?

You just lost all credibility you once had imo. You give the word callous new meaning.

Is that what I said?

But sure I can play hyperbolic too

So you are saying Megan Kelly is as bad as the guy who shot up the synagogue

How terrible of you

My point is that when you cry wolf over and over it becomes meaningless, a and dumb jokes or comments are treated as the same as genuine racist acts

Yet you chose to act like that has something to do with the shooter to insult me

Great work

They way it gets tossed around as a label for everything does make it meaningless. I got called racist for not voting for Obama and for disliking Obamacare. The label gets used as a means of attempting to silence dissent such that when true racism and true Nazi show up ... people don't know exactly what to say except to be outraged that it's been implied by our very own political leadership and media that we have anything in common with him ... and that certain posters think nothing of doing the same in the same breath that they chide us for daring to say the words lack meaning.

It all goes into the pot

People began saying the PC people of the left were trying to silence people - but that fight was in reality trying to tell all people they had no right to criticize anyone. Now anything goes. Mission accomplished

For what it's worth - I think Megyn is willfully ignorant and egotistical. Like a lot of people. Not racist

She is more inclined to work her non-PC angle than to think about what it is she really believes. Her street cred (and star power) depends on it

NBC had to make a decision - and it's the same decision anyone would make - including Fox. When they cross a line - they back track. They will never eat crow - but they cover their ass like nobody's business

Well this isn't the first time she said thongs that made people mad. Like when she said Santa was white like he actually exists. And if course had to admit Jesus might not have been white. Shes special like that and apparently only grew up around white people.

And that's the problem.

Why is anyone above criticism? When you put people above criticism, you are trying to imply they are untouchable, akin to saints or even gods.

a reply to: Spiramirabilis

I don’t mind nbc or any company for having standards and then holding people that are employed by them to account

The issue is you are wrong when you say that any company would have made this decision, at least if you mean based in Kelly’s comment

I know this because Kimmel and fallon have gone beyond just commenting on black face, and actually worn it. Yet they remain because they are profitable and have the right politics

I tired with the selective enforcement and criticism on what is racism

That is why stories like this further make accusations of racism meaningless, as it becomes obvious the standards are fluid to what’s beneficial to those levying the charge

I can't even take you seriously ketsuko. You hate liberals so much it's palpable - and nearly in every post

Half the time when I'm trying to have a genuine conversation with you you won't even reply

Sorry - maybe we can try again another time?

I'm tired of people taking the accusations personally and making it about the left - when obvious racism is obvious

People want to make this partisan and take it personally instead of locking arms and fighting the same battles together

As tired as you are of whatever it is you're trying to say here - I am tired of the dishonesty and the hypocrisy
