Dr. Laura Schlessinger just told Larry King that she is quitting radio when her contract expires at the end of this year.

Another conservative voice silenced.
Schlessinger said this was her decision, but she also said she had lost sponsors for her recent comments on race.
I mean, I didn’t think anyone watched CNN anymore.
Damn! I really enjoyed her. Damn, damn, damn.
She suc8s anyway
Good riddance.. I couldn’t stand her..
I’m glad. Her show always displaces Hannity and other political oriented shows I’d much rather listen to.
Sorry, but women’s marital problems don’t really interest me.
okay did she really say something bad?
okay did she really say something bad?
Can’t believe she’ll be gone forever. Everybody gets tired of a grind. She’ll be back.
Any reasons given?
Yes..."i am my kids mom"
Good. The most annoying woman on the dial will finally shut her yap.
She stood up for children and Men in a way no one else did or will.
She was the last rational bastion against the storm of self-indulgent selfishness of the modern American jerkwad.
This is a huge loss for all of us.
Take the money and run.. I wish her well..
You can only take so many arrows and knives in the back and then it becomes personal..
My only alternative to Rush Limbaugh.
>>Good riddance.. I couldnt stand her..<<
I understand. Having men be Men and orienting lives towards protection of kids is a sucky attitude.
I can see why you didn’t like her message.
Yup. The N word.
People are finding out that even if you are trying to make an important point on race (like Dr. Laura), or whatever, if that word comes out of your mouth unless you are a liberal race baiting black, you will be absolutely destroyed by the MSM.
It’s irrational, but that’s the way it is. You can’t even say, someone said it.
Her recent use of Nig*** Nig*** Nig*** on the air probably did her in. I’m surprised she survived the nude photos. Talk about bad decisions. She was the soup nazi of self help.
Well, she really was a nagger.
Seventeen years on radio.
Anyone who speaks out against homosexuality is destroyed.
She used to be on at noon following Rush...I had to be sure to change the dial before I went into the office so I could avoid her shill when I went to lunch.
For the life of me I have no idea why people call her. She only beats the crud out of anyone who calls into her show. She is simply way too sanctimonious and condescending.
She said the “n” word to make a point in a conversation with a black woman who was complaining about her white husband’s insensitive friends.
So did she actually use the n-word offensively or did she just say the n-word when discussing the n-word?
Aaahhh She hurt some little feelings !!tough they should grow up and earn some respect then.
No. She was obviously canned.
i’m glad she’s going! i’m conservative but she would make my blood boil she’s nothing but a hypocrite that’s why i stopped listening to her
The race card wins again.
Most importantly, she spoke against the homosexual agenda and life-style.
These days, that’s enough to get you retired fast.
Another annoying trait is her always assuming she had all the facts when a caller was telling a story.
Then there was the nude photos from her younger days. If you haven't seen them, don't go looking.
Overall I suppose her quitting is a loss.
"The reason is I want to regain my First Amendment rights. I want to be able to say what's on my mind and in my heart and what I think is helpful and useful without somebody getting angry, some special interest group deciding this is the time to silence a voice of dissent and attack affiliates, attack sponsors. I'm sort of done with that."

I just listened to the audio. I REALLY thought her comments were spot on. She wasn’t being racist at all. She was exposing the hypocrisy. Some people are just too overly sensitive and CAN’T have an honest discussion about ‘race’. Pathetic.
I took my kids to see the latest Shrek movie and the donkey character (Eddie Murphy) used the ‘cracker’ term. There is certainly a double standard. Can’t have it both ways.
When I lived in the UK....I had many people call me a ‘Yank’. Sometimes it was used in a pleasant, kidding manner....sometimes in a vicious tone. I was once asked if I minded being called that from someone who happened to be acting like a complete a$$hole....I replied, “Well I don’t exactly run around calling Brits ‘limeys’, do I?” He replied...”Fair enough, love.”
I know it was her schtick, but her nastiness for the sake of being nasty just got old.
This is a tough situation.
No doubt part of the reason is her taken-out-of-context use of the “n” word.
Now. She was taken out of context. And that should have been a bigger issue.
But really. What use is there in civilized conversation for that word?
Style and substance, the substance was right, she was on the right side of the issues, but her style? She came across too snooty, patronizing, condescending - at least to me.
According to this article, Schlessinger wasn't a real conservative.
[A blog article] supposes that I ever quoted Leviticus that homosexuality is an abomination. That never happened. I repeat: that never happened. I never said that. I dont believe that ."
In fact, I was one of the earliest radio hosts to support organizations such as PFLAG (you know, Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays) and other efforts to encourage openness and acceptance of gays in their own families, much less society. Dr. Laura Schlessinger, Setting My Record Straight about Gays, June 22, 2010
“Another conservative voice silenced.”
No, simply an example of advertisers making a decision to no longer advertise on the Dr Laura Show.
And if you like, you are free to open your checkbook and keep Dr Laura on the air via advertising.
I think the Woman simply uses common sense when advising people that can't see the forest for the trees. She is a self admitted former Feminist who made many mistakes in her youth. Dr. Laura is all about protecting Children from the selfish behavior of Adults who are responsible for them.
I hope you're not buying into the Liberal Logic that you cannot “judge” people because you made some mistakes at an earlier time of your life.
If that were true, many of the recovering Democrats / Liberals that now post on FR would fit your definition. While I may not agree with everything she says, being a “hypocrite” is not one of her character traits IMHO.
Earlier on she was very outspoken about homosexuality. Advertisers have all right-wing talkers by the balls to not criticize homosexuality.
Will Republicans take a pledge to uphold the Constitution and the 10 Commandments if elected this fall?
Rush and Ann Coulter took another path. They capitulated. Schlessinger didn't, and now she's silenced.
