GLAAD controls most of the US media.  When they say "do this" the media will instantly respond.  This is why you see so many homo characters.  They forced The Walking Dead to add some.  So the show added two lesbians.  In the next episode, one ran away following a gun battle, and the other got shot right in the head by a 12 year old girl during the same battle.

Time for DD to move its show to CMT and away from A&E.

I'm going to get pilloried for this, but if Robertson had ridiculed the Jewish practice of circumcision, A and E would be within its rights to suspend him for that.

Corporations do not like controversy, especially when it involves segments of its audience or potential customer base.

I don't think that he will.

They (all concerned...network included) are content with the ratings appealing to their chosen audience.  Along the same attitude NBC takes in marketing MSNBC cable.

Seems that those Duck Dynasty guys actually have -their own- corporation, do they not?

It's also worth mentioning that the (in your words) "corporations" (the broadcast networks) have no problems with controversy, so long as the "controversy" attacks or smears conservatives and conservative doctrine. It's only when someone speaks out against -liberal orthodoxy-, that it becomes so "controversial" that it can't be shown on tv.

Although when it comes down to the brass tacks, it's really PROFITS that the corporations care about.

I hope Mr. Robertson sticks to his guns.

If A&E doesn't want Duck Dynasty, and all the revenue it brings in, someone else will.

The new update in Variety is that he has been fired.

But, from what I've read in the last 30 minutes, Phil Robertson was tired of doing this show and wanted to leave.

So what better way to leave?  Endear yourself to your devotees, but say just the right thing to make yourself a martyr so you'll be popular among the people you want to be popular with.

That was epic when the girl shot her! Was totally not expecting the kids to come to the rescue! It angers me that they added a lesbian character because of outside pressure groups.  Just like every commercial has to have a black person in it.

As far as Duck Dynasty goes they would make a ton of money by creating their own channel IMO like Glenn Beck's Blaze or like you said switch to CMT.  I can clearly tell you that gays are going to be watching Bravo not Duck Dynasty.

However, he did give them the ammo these groups have been desperately looking for since the show began.

Exactly.  The Robertsons have all kinds of options.

CMT is owned by Viacom which owns MTV, Bravo, Logo and other bastions of morality.

I agree look at the success of shows on Netflix? I buy movies on Amazon which I can watch on my computer, iPhone, iPad, and my home television whenever or wherever I am. 

My Comcast let's me watch live tv on my phone, computer or tablet wherever I am. 

The only problem for Duck Dynasty is I imagine there is a larger older demographics.  People like my dad who would have no clue how to work the technology.

I am sure the rest of the family is under contract  with A&E unless they sign year to year....if that is the case they are stuck there until their contract is up...with all the revenue they bring in A&E probably will hold them to it..
