It has nothing to do with the "media"... They have no power to hire or fire Roseanne or Smollett.

It all comes down to the individual network they had/have a contract with and who the network chooses to be associated with.

If your pissed about Smollett not being fired, then take it up with the Fox Broadcasting Company... If you think Roseanne being cancelled was an injustice, then take it up with ABC.

Like seriously, no offence... but get a grip.

There's no big conspiracy against the right here... Just a simple business decision.


Roseanne wasn’t a business decision. It cost the Network a fortune.



Just because it was arguably a bad business decision, doesn't mean it wasn't a 'business decision'.

ABC didn't want their network to be associated with Roseanne and her twitter comments.... Where as, Fox broadcasting company could care less about being associated with Smolett and his mock racist attack claim.

Smolett isn't as anywhere near high profile as Roseanne either. So what he did is basically in one ear and out the other for most people... Where as that whole Rosanne thing would have probably plagued ABC's family friendly reputation for years to come, if they had of stood by her

That's all it comes down to.... a calculated business decision.


The media has a huge impact in situations like this. Business cares about public opinion and brand impact. If the people are being told day in day out that a person is toxic, then they will make a decision for the good of the business.

This is obvious - even for a child.



Yeah well, apparently it wasn't "obvious" to Roseanne when she decided it would be a good idea to post that tweet, after she'd just signed a potentially multi million dollar contact with a major network.

I mean, it's not like she's gonna die poor, either way... still though, something has to be said for her being a perfect candidate to win first place for the darwin award.

A lot of the time it seems as if no one even cares about the ACTUAL HISTORY OF THE WORLD regarding manipulation of the people.

We simply do not matter.

The corporate press know their audience, who will buy their garbage, and tailor their content accordingly. But it's led us back to the yellow journalism days.

Smollett was a media/democrat darling and it's tough to admit you were wrong.

Soon the media will remember this:

We had a president from Arkansas that had multiple women accusing him of rape and assorted sexual misconduct and his victims were just a bunch of whores..

We also had a supreme court nominee that was accused of maybe being the guy that potentially touched a boob in highschool possibly maybe not sure it was him so hes a sexual predator...

So why exactly does this topic confuse you?
It's just business as usual in todays media.


Good point! On the reverse side, that same media crucified SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh because a desperate woman said he raped her, back in High School.

The liberal News Media and Democrat leaders are indeed an ENEMY that's against American peace and harmony.

Um me thinks you want to gloss over history and FACTS on rosanne .

lets point out a big fact from the past that blows your whole argument on her out of the water.

Remember when the origional rosanne was on and she was a openly flaming liberal/democratic supporter

she went to a baseball game, openly butchered the national anthem and when the crowd (understandibly) boo her she proceeded to grap her crotch and mocked the crowd.

the outcry was at least as much if not more than the (no defending BTW) tweet she did.

now go to the time of the return of rosanne .

the tweet was at least as offensive as the previous incident.

the outcry was at least as much .

The big difference was this time she was an open TRUMP SUPPORTER.

this time she is FIRED.

but hey dont let FACTS get in way of a political hypocricy

Wasn't the entire premise of the show ABC signed up to, about the iconic 'Roseanne' character and how she was a die hard Trump supporter?

I guess maybe no one at ABC ever bothered reading the script and didn't realize what they'd signed up to, till it actually aired... right?

The left are walking double standards.

This jussie guy inflicted wounds upon himself.

Caught race baiting before with a letter...

He is dangerous and needs to be terminated.

Its just the dark side of hollyweird.....

Not die hard....just a regular average working women who supports the president.

Supporting the president today in anyway is seen as die hard.
