I love the service these watchdog groups provide. I could never keep up on the bills Congress is trying to foist on us or follow all the backhanded politics of many corporations. But there are occasions that I look at the alert and wonder, "why even bother?"
This is one of those times. Tell CBS 'Rosie is wrong at any Price' by One Million
According to numerous news sources, CBS is considering replacing longtime The Price is Right gameshow host Bob Barker with lesbian feminist Rosie O'Donnell.

O'Donnell recently left her job on ABC's The View after her controversial comments degrading toward Christians, the US military, and president Bush led to a viewer backlash against the network.

Tell CBS that replacing Bob Barker with Rosie O'Donnell is a bad bid for The Price is Right.
First of all, this is "The Price is Right" people! I don't see how the culture war is going to be won on this front. Yeah Rosie is offensive. But Bob Barker and the consumerist game show weren't exactly generals on our side.

And primarily, it is up to the entertainment company to decide who they want to employ. If they hire Rosie and she tanks, we are no better off. If she does well, we are no worse off. Perhaps better off because who took Barker seriously when he repeated "Spay and neuter your pets."
