    This kind of comment cannot be considered responsible on the public airwaves.  Why assume he didn't mean what he said?

    We need to enforce quality on Our Airwaves by removing abusive people from them.  They have no Constitutional right to a job that gives them access to our property to make this kind of comment.

      I agree that he should be suspended and be required to show contrition, community service, whatever... it was an AWFUL thing to say.

      I just those things serve as a better example to people who might make the same mistake than simply "firing him."

      Firing him is about revenge. I'm talking about actually improving things, which revenge typically doesn't accomplish.  That's probably also why GLAAD wants the suspension.

        Accountability for misuse of public property to convey a vile & dangerous idea?

        He didn't misspeak or poorly phrase anything; THAT's a mistake.  He's only sorry that people are upset enough to complain about his horrific idea, not that his idea is horrific.

        I dunno about the benefits of a suspension vs firing; I do favor second chances.  However, I also don't know what this DB may have advocated previously...
