    Self-disclosure: I am a hardcore Libertarian, so I'm all for freedom of speech and freedom of expression. However, a lot of those comments don't seem to understand (Or overlook.) that OTHER people have free speech also, some of those other people being executives and studio presidents. Besides, if CNN HAS to keep her on just because she has free speech, that would be FORCING them to pay and associate with her. Now whether CNN, etc, SHOULD can Kathy is a different issue (I think that they should. If for no other reason than that she seems to be blaming other people.), but I'm still baffled that we have the same people come out and throw out "Free Speech" and the "First Amendment." whenever a celebrity gets in trouble for saying or doing something controversial. And the sad thing is that I think that the majority of people don't understand how free speech works either.

    As for Bill Maher, I saw the clip of the segment/show, and he was clearly joking. So, people are really getting worked up over nothing. Still, it was not an appropriate word to use, and hopefully Maher will be more careful in the future. HBO will hopefully keep his show. If they do cancel him because of that (And it's a safe bet that they won't.), well, it is still their network. So, yes, it's being overblown, but that's just the kind of stuff that happens when you speak in public.

Agree Free-Speech does not mean not being held accountable for what one says. And if you cannot handle the reactions (as long as they arnt breaking the law themselves) maybe they should think before speaking them. By they I mean ANYONE. \:\)
