U.S. Politics; Who Watches the Watchers?

Recommended Posts

My wife, who is normally much more of a glass-half-full person than I, pointed out that dumping Roseanne might be as much of doing the right thing for Disney-ABC as just doing the right thing.

They didn't want to lose their advertisers, she said. That brings back the old monetary considerations that motivate nearly everything in American society.

Roseanne has efficiently poisoned her own brand by letting her racist personality out on Twitter. (thank you, Ambien?). Unlike members of Congress, private corporations do respond to the potential reactions of their supporters.

Despite the ratings of the show, I don’t think it’s likely to be picked up by anyone else -- not even a network with the low standards of Fox.

Roseanne should get together with Mel Gibson to compare self-destructive abilities.
