´Hung out to dry´: Duck Dynasty star
and family hit out at A&E

Mail On Line (UK), by Will Paine

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 12/22/2013 7:37:31 AM

Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson and his family believe they have been ‘hung out to dry’ by TV network A&E after he was suspended for homophobic comments made in a magazine interview, MailOnline can reveal. Sources within the close-knit Louisiana clan say they are convinced A&E are manipulating the controversial situation to bring them – and particularly Robertson – back into line after Television executives grew tired of the family pushing their deeply-held, Christian beliefs. They also think the network could have done something to stop the controversial GQ article being made public, because an A&E representative was present during the interview

New York journalists know that virtually the entire editorial staff at GQ is openly gay.
If the Ducks see an agenda here they know what they see.

Phil Robertson is a Man´s Man....he took care of his wife, family, and built a fortune...he has principals, has rock-bound integrity and says what he thinks...no wonder AE wants to control him

I´ve never seen an episode of Duck D, but I like the fact that they are an "Exploding Head" show.

Read where Willie said last night A&E thought everyone would laugh at the rednecks - his family. They had no idea their popularity or influence would be like it is. He also said that when Phil (daddy duck) asked why they cut off the end of his prayer that mentions Jesus, they told him "...we don´t want to upset Muslims."

What happened to the thread we had last night on this? It disappeared within about an hour of being posted.

As I said last night, the quotes in this article are NOT coming from the Robertsons, but rather, "A source close to the family, who asked not to be named, told MailOnline."

Is anyone else as suspicious of unnamed sources as I am.

This does not sound like something that would come from the Robertsons, and until I her one of them ask why A&E didn´t stop the interview, I don´t believe it, and I don´t believe they have "hit out" at A&E.

They said what they said: they can not imagine the show going forward without Phil at the helm.

The Robertsons don´t need A & E . They don´t even need the money. They are completely self reliant , responsible Christians and if anyone watched or read their books then you´d know that they were just fine and happy before all the fame and have said that if it all went away they would still have their faith and each other. They have, do and will continue to live off the land and God´s bounty. Many of us that watch the show don´t watch other reality shows where they use four letter words instead of a decent vocabulary while stabbing one another in the back. While the Robertsons many have a southern accent their vocabularies are far superior to any other reality ´stars´. Too bad for A&E that the accent that they thought meant their stars were stupid backfired on the arrogant elitist and ignorant network executives.

This controversy is so painfully obviously a set up.
A&E thought they were hiring some redneck Christians for viewers to laugh at. What they got was the Robertsons, a wonderful Christian family who viewers fell in love with.

I don´t hate gays. But I have a very hard time not hating people who presume to tell me what I believe, think, or feel or what my motives are -- especially those who would angrily argue with me after I correct them. Who the hell do they think they are? Yeesh.

If the quotes are true, the Robertson family appears to be suggesting that the A&E representative should have prevented Phil from saying the things he did. Why? Don´t they agree with Phil´s sentiments?

Phil´s a grown-up man. He said what he said. Now the family is repudiating it, and blaming it on A&E. Sorry, folks. That´s more than a bit hypocritical.

Phil Robertson expressed his strongly held beliefs. A&E, instead of respecting his beliefs, decided to try and silence him. You may disagree with someone´s beliefs but you still have to treat them with respect. The Robertson´s should take their show to a different network since A&E is behaving so unprofessionally.

Protecting one another´s freedom to voice our opinions does not imply an obligation to treat those opinions with respect. Just to allow them to be voiced. We´re free to ridicule people who express hare-brained and delusional opinions, like those who preach that Communism is a just form of government, or that if we would eliminate our military then the rest of the world would follow.

No, #15, what is being "suggested" is that it is hypocritical of A&E to suspend Phil from the show since their representative was there when he did the interview. They knew what he was saying. If they had been so "disappointed" about it, or offended by it, and wanted him not to say it, they should have stopped him at that time or do something about the publishing of the piece - not wait until it is published and then condemn him and suspend him. The fact that they have known it all this time and did nothing makes the whole thing smack of a set up to attempt to gain more control over Phil and prevent him from voicing his Christian beliefs. It is somewhat of an understatement to say that, if that was their plan, it backfired.

Yes, he certainly is a grown man, and a strong one. He hasn´t backed down from what he said and has no intention of doing so. He is very likely to repeat what he said or some variation of it as he spends quite a bit of time teaching the Bible.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Steve Huber, an affable salesman who is still paying off an unexpected medical bill, was not among the millions of Americans who signed up for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act during the enrollment period that ended March 31. After seeing television ads for Kentucky’s new online insurance marketplace, Mr. Huber, 57, made several attempts to explore the website but found it too complicated. Moreover, his income has dropped in recent years, he said, and he felt certain that he could not afford coverage. So he never priced plans or researched whether he qualified for financial assistance. “I

When it comes to immigration, many Republican members of the House have long distrusted their leader, Speaker John Boehner. Now, things have gotten even worse. Boehner has assured members who oppose comprehensive immigration reform that nothing will be done on the issue until the Obama administration "can be trusted to enforce our laws." Given the average GOP Congressman´s view of Barack Obama, that means "never." That´s certainly how many members interpreted the speaker´s words.

Vice President Joe Biden is warning his Democratic base to drop the apathy and pledge to vote in the fall midterms or see the administration´s achievements like Obamacare get sunk by a Republican majority in the House and Senate. He headlined his latest scare-mail “If we lose,” and warned that the GOP will pass the tough budget authored by Rep. Paul Ryan, and repeal Obamacare. “If Republicans hold on to their majority in the House and win back control of the Senate in November -- and believe me, that´s a real possibility -- then I can guarantee you that we´ll

Michael Lewis’s latest best-seller, Flash Boys, released on March 31, depicts what he describes as the latest financial outrage in a “story of scandals… linked together tail to trunk like circus elephants.” This time it’s high-frequency trading, the use of algorithms and super-fast computing that allows stock trades to be executed automatically in a matter of milliseconds. Lewis argues that many high-frequency trading firms make money by essentially trading in front of large orders that they can see coming in before anyone else, thanks to super-fast data connections with stock exchanges.

Dozens of suspected al Qaeda fighters have been killed in the latest in a string of strikes against the terror organization’s Yemen affiliate over the weekend, Yemeni officials say, just days after the affiliate released a video of a large daytime militant rally. A Yemeni official with the Supreme Security Committee told ABC News overnight that on April 19, an American drone strike took out 10 members of al Qaeda but also killed three civilians who were nearby. The civilians “were in a pickup truck that suddenly appeared next to the car that was targeted,” the official said. The next day the

Obama Handles Russia Like Republicans:

President Obama came to office nursing dreams "of forging a new partnership" with a stubborn rival. When times got tough, he abandoned the relationship and adopted dusty zero-sum gain policies of his predecessors. To allies and rivals alike, he looks naïve, weak, and disconnected. This is the portrait presented Sunday by Peter Baker in his front-page New York Times story titled, "In Cold War Echo, Obama Strategy Writes Off Putin." What struck me about the piece is the unstated parallel between Obama´s handling of Russia and Republicans, and how in both cases the gap between promise and performance illustrates a fundamental

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections.
