UnNews:Update: Dr. Laura quits radio
18 August 2010
She told Larry King on Tuesday she feels freer to say what she believes needs to be said. However, the only recent utterance that was problematic was when she used the N-word repeatedly to a caller whom it offended.
She mentioned to Mr. King "some special interest group deciding...to silence a voice of dissent," a campaign that UnNews predicted on 14 August. Indeed, her producer said General Motors has pulled its advertising from the show. GM is currently owned by President Obama, who might not have understood Dr. Laura's nuanced purpose in using the N-word.
