  •  Yeah, I think so too... (7+ / 0-)

    but it's not like going over that line was the intention, she and her panel tripped - Phil took a Flying Leap into the Over-the-End Zone then IMO he and his family spiked the ball.

      they planned that picture in that segment.  There was clearly no other reason to put it there other than to do some kind of ridicule of the family because of that child.  It's not like that picture randomly came up in that segment without anybody knowing it was going to come up.  So,I think you are giving them a little too much of a pass when you say it wasn't intended.   It pretty clearly was planned to use the picture and focus on that child as the basis of SOME kind of ridicule.

      But like I said, it crossed the line, MHP rightfully apologized, and I suspect that means it's done.  I don't see anybody -- not even conservatives -- harping on it, or signing petitions or demanding the network kick her off or anything like that. so this one played out pretty much like it should have, in my opinion.

        of the previous two segments, which I just posted - i don't think that was the intent.  She was looking for commentary from the panel, and they'll previously done the bit about the interracial little girl who got slammed in the Cheeriors commercial, perpetuating what they'd just decried wasn't the point.   I'd like to see more of the segment for a better understanding, but I can't find it - I think it's been removed.
