Robertson said what he believed, and wouldn't back down. A&E didn't expect that. A&E thought it could suspend Phil, he'd apologize, and it would be over. It didn't work out the way.  The uproar was a factor, but there is no way A&E wanted to see DD leave.

GLAAD is a bunch of bullies, and usually a bully will lose when someone stands up to them.  They win by making the victims run scared.
"...And these atomic bombs which science burst upon the world that night were strange, even to the men who used them."  H. G. Wells, The World Set Free, 1914

"The one pervading evil of democracy is the tyranny of the majority, or rather of that party, not always the majority, that succeeds, by force or fraud, in carrying elections." -Lord Acton

It's actually an example of marketing genius.

Ultimate self deprecation...to keep it getting bumped to the top of the 'thread' (daily news cycle)

They're certainly getting a lot of mileage out of it.

It works on the playground.  I'm just GLAD that GLAAD lost.
