Conservatives want rules bent for 'Duck Dynasty' star

Published: Friday, Dec. 20, 2013 - 11:10 am

Re "GOP conservatives back 'Duck Dynasty' star, (Page A1, Dec. 20): When Martin Bashir of MSNBC made a very offensive comment about Sarah Palin, the GOP conservatives called for his head. He was suspended and later resigned. When Phil Robertson of the "Duck Dynasty" reality TV show made very offensive comments about gays and African Americans, he was suspended from the show. Now, the GOP conservatives claim that suspension is wrong and goes against the First Amendment. How can the conservatives have it both ways?
