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

“Schlessinger said this was her decision, but she also said she had lost sponsors for her recent comments on race.”
I guess she didn’t want to work for less money.
She has silenced herself.
I think she sometimes jumps to a conclusion before she gets the whole story, but I understand that her phone screener provides her with some background information from the caller before she takes the call.
Either way, this whole “controversy” is absolutely ridiculous. It's a shame that this will be seen as a victory for the haters on the Left, which it is.
She stood up to political incorrectness in every way. She is not a racist. A black caller complained about a white guy using the word ni—er and Dr. Laura repeated the word in a way white people are not permitted while talking about how blacks aways say n n n n and there is not a problem when they say n every five minutes. Dr. Laura said if it is an ugly word, why are blacks always saying n this and n that...the double standard is confusing and it is wrong...
Anyway, that did her in. Saying the real McCoy n-word in that context.
Like your profile bio—very interesting.
No, she’s a little white girl.
LOL! That's a good description.
Many of us can identify with her desire to teach right living and then have our children wander afar.
we all make mistakes along the way. Some have very serious unintended consequences. Making wise choices and having a standard is vital. Christianity is off course, becoming worldly, and weak. Accepting man's will and what he wanted to do ... rather than drawing a strong line according to the Word of God. MO
Thnk You, Dr. Laura for standing up and calling homosexuality deviate behavior. Calling women's lib spiteful and a turning away from home and children in many cases., teaching the importance of parenting, instead of letting the system educate children in the mind numbed pleasures of today’s world. etc.
You will be Missed. My hope is you will reconsider. The attacks on you have been many and harmful, hurtful, and mean.
May God bless you, amen.
As if ... all the repetition here regarding politics didn't.
” Ecclesiastes I:4-10
4.One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: but the earth abideth for ever.
5.The sun also ariseth, and the sun goeth down, and hasteth to his place where he arose.
6.The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it whirleth about continually, and the wind returneth again according to his circuits.
7.All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again.
8.All things are full of labour; man cannot utter it: the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing.
9.The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
10.Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us.”
Over and over we see the same opinions and reasons for becoming angry with our government and its blatant way of railroading legislation against the will of the people. Etc.
“There is nothing new under the sun.”
God bless Dr. Laura. I hope she has a new program or show. God bless America and all who loves Almighty God and seeks to know Him, in Jesus name amen. amen.
Well, she was stupid.
Whether you like it or not, there are rules to the Game of media. She broke a cardinal rule, and that has consequences.
She wasn’t calling anyone a bad name. She was discussing the word itself. Obviously she should have used shorthand for that word, but she chose to use the same word the caller was using.
She had so many enemies waiting for her slightest error that she was bound to get hit by one of the many water balloons being tossed her way.
This was a rather odd way to commit professional suicide.
