Default Rosie Does It Again

The drivell that Rosie ranted about today is outrageous. Blaming the US and Britain regardin gthe Hostage sailors and stating that the US and Britian planned the stunt, and that the World Trade Centers were blown up by the US Government. She states that steel cannot be melted by fire. Excuse me, steel IS melted by fire, how does the imbecile think steel is formed?

As of this moment forward, as long as the American Broadcasting Company, by the way... Disney is the owner of ABC, keeps this creature on their network, I will NOT watch any of their networks (so long ESPN) Disney Channel and I will fight against anybody I can to bring this conglomerate to its knees. This woman has got to go!!

Mehawk... let me put this as simply as possible. That woman wants to be the next Howard Stern. Don't fall for it.

Good Morning Michael. I agree 100% with you. Especially as a Marine, I'm offended by her!
When I heard her take on building 7, my thoughts were exactly what you stated! Just how do you think steel is made??????
As I understand it, the ratings for her show are dropping over the last 3 months, so maybe ABC will get rid of her.

Here's how it works....

Before Rosie (or any other like her) runs her big mouth...

1- The topic is addressed at length in comittee, including what she is going to say. What she will say is proposed. Possible reactions by the audience are predicted and assessed.

2- This is also sometimes run in front of focus groups, whose reaction is guaged.

3- Entertainment lawyers are consulted. Network people advised.

4- The show goes on as if it was spontaneous. Millions are duped.

I can't stand her myself, but she is accomplishing exactly what she wants. She is getting people like you and I that wouldn't even think of watching the view talk about it.

That show to me is just a bunch of people arguing. I can get that for free anywhere.

I wrote my first e-mail last night to the network. I am afraid what her powerful force will do. Some people think that one voice doesn't make a difference, but in fact it can. She is going to stir up every less than stable person in this country, and other countries.

I would be the first person to defend her right to speak, but along with free speech comes responsibility.

I have a good friend who is Egyptian by birth, but now lives in New York. He was teasing me last night about"Wow, all the pressure has been taken off the middle East for 9/11, because Rosie says the US did it."

Look at the harm Jane Fonda did. I wish Rosie would stop her ratings getting tyrants, before someone gets hurt.

Probably the best way to voice our disapproval would be to not watch her show any longer. In fact, to not give her any attention at all.

She has crossed the line from dissent to treason. She has also demonstrated that she is a candidate for the funny farm. Since I didn't see this paranoid conspiracy theory raving, was she wearing a tinfoil hat at the time?

The sad part is, people will believe her. Shockingly and I REPEAT... SHOCKINGLY , my brother, who is a police officer in Louisianna, believes what that creature says. That is so scary.

Disney has a movie coming out that I wanted to see but now I shall not see it.

I have been home this week sick. Not a fun week.

I have watched each show except for Tuesday. Still not sure if today's show was a repeat. It indicate that it was not at the end of it.
But next week the show will be on vacation.

For even MSNBC to agree that the lady should be removed from the network means alot.

I love ABC, but this is where the top management does something for the month of April. The only thing that saved them was the Easter break for the show.

It appears since she is on an anti depression drug that she is taking a trip on something- On the Thursday show she said for the building 7 to come down because bombs were planted- this type of thinking means a person is on something. Sje needs to go into de-tox now. They might use that excuse...

I am shocked that the network hasn't seen her behavoir getting worse this week.

Janmd, the bomb bit has been floating for years now, it just that she has a public platform and uses it to bring up the old stuff and make it seem new and it is, still, her personal thoughts on it.

If she was in another country that did not guarantee her RIGHT to freedom of speech, by now, she would not be in the public eye. All of these people who think this wonderful country is so wrong, go to the other countries, we won't miss you!

Your all having a laugh, you must be. Mike amazed

So some no mark "shock jock" that is now based on TV, "says things" And you all go

By watching for their thoughts and reaction, and reacting to it....you just fell into the trap ---Ratings

Its like reacting to me or Mike, is it real, is it spin, or just "playing a game" to those presentented to you. Get a grip on reality 8)

David, the reality is, that network nor its parent company, will never see a penny from my pocket and I am spreading the love to everyone I can. True enough, one person cannot make a dent in a megaconglomeration such as Disney, but 1+1=2, 2+2=4, 4+4=8 etc.

Sorry Mike, the reality is ratings. And if enough watch and react, they win.

Personally as Americans I do not feel for one minute that they actually believe what they spout, but like here "opinion" causes debate.

Its the ignorant ones that don't see that "game" that I feel sorry for... 8) Take it for what it is, okay it's on tv, but that "vehicle"does not make it right or wrong. Always ask in media, WHY IS THIS PERSON SAYING THIS?

Me its opinion, for others it is to get ratings and by reacting, it presents it to them on a plate.

David, I wholeheartedly agree with your assessments. It is all about ratings, the show has skyrocketed in the ratings since she came onboard. The companies don't care that she is ticking people off. They are thrilled that there are people watching the show, even if it's just to see what she can spout off about next.

I see through it and realize that some others, well, many others, will take her word as gospel and go with it. I am not falling into that. I don't watch the show anyways. I get my info about her from the Hannity and Colmes Show on Fox.

David, as always... <raising glass of cheer to you>

Well unless it is going to cost you money, ie subscription, then always watch what they have to say, its the only way to counter opinion.

Maybe in this case they are working on the basis or opinion that a lot of people do not agree with this war and what it actually means in the big picture for you as a country....mmm

But its debate and that is never wrong, no matter how one sided you or I may feel it is.

Unfortunately the "channel" never set up the "Mike and Dave Show" to give a counter opinion to Ms Rosie, if they did, they would get the ratings they craved

Balanced discussion, its a basic, not just one side retoric.

Michael,

I'm with ya on this one, however you have one minor problem. If you're not going to patronize the businesses that advertise on Disney stations, well........

You're not going to be able to eat any longer. All the major food companies advertise on Disney.

You're not going to be able to wear clothes any longer, either. Unless you fashion yourself something from a fig leaf. Then again, some fig tree company probably advertises on Disney channels.

Anyway, point being, that it's extremely difficult to avoid all the companies that advertise on the networks. They're just too embedded.

Dean
