THIS IS NOT A POLITICAL DISCUSSION ABOUT WHAT OF HANK WILLIAMS JR. SAID, IT IS ABOUT FREE SPEECH, CENSORSHIP AND WHAT IS FAIR, SOMETHING WE, ESPECIALLY THOSE OF US IN THIS TYPE OF BUSINESS, NEED TO BE CONCERNED WITH:
The political left did this all the time with Bush and it rarely got any attention; They called him a Nazi and many other things that cannot be repeated here by many celebs and others and no one cared. I am not defending Hank OR the Left, but why is he being dragged through the mud just for speaking his mind? Remember Alec Baldwin's rant on Conan O'Brien years ago saying that Henry Hyde AND his family should be "stoned to death"? What kind of backlash did he get?? Did Hank say anyone should be killed? Maybe what Hank said was inappropriate, maybe it wasn't. Is there a bias in the mainstream media or not? Again, we in this business need to be concerned. Please let me know your thoughts.
