I think Liberals have misguided priorities, and must share some of the blame for any loss of freedom expeirenced under the current administration, or in the future.

I wasn't defending the comments, or the host. I guess what I'm trying to get is that are two levels of speech in America. Most speech is protected by the first amd., but that doesn't mean you won't be fired, boycotted, or otherwise punished, and I'm not saying that such a thing is always wrong; if the mainstream media declares that holocaust denial is unworthy of much discussion on their air waves or in their newspapers they are probably right, but I'm trying to look at the question of priorities, and the reason I focus on Liberals is that they are the ones that are supposed to be looking out for our civil liberties. I could give another hundred examples, but here is just one more: The show 24 has had a consistent, and gradual policy of undermining the bill of rights; each season they push the issue of torture, and "bending the rules" a little further. Yet, last season they came under the most fire for their depiction of Muslims, not their disdain for the constitution. The criticism was distressing enough to the producers that they put disclaimers, featuring Kiefer Sutherland, before and after a lot of their commercial breaks.

I live in the Bay Area and this guy is prone to rants all the time. To be honest I am surprised he did not get fired as his station is a minority owner of the SF Giants.
