http://www.cnn.com/2014/05/08/showbiz/tv/benham-brothers-hgtv/?sr=fb050914hgtv930aVODtopLink Now clearly, we can see the liberal police state ruining peoples careers for their own views. How dare HGTV give into public pressure? /sarcasm /thread title is sarcasm to But, what I just said seems to be what some of my friends on my Facebook seem to think. A couple of people that work for me have been making similar statements, that there is a " liberal police state destroying family values " or something, though I don't state my political views at work. This kind of talk is on some forums I go to as well from the right, I would link it but we aren't allowed to link ot other fourms. Now the way I see it, if you are a network like HGTV, a good portion of your viewers probably are pro gay rights, or LGBT themselves. So having anti gay hosts on your network sounds like a great way to lose money. So, were the brothers denied their new series because of the liberal police state? As some people are claiming. OR Is this just a privately owned company making a solid business decision? If owned HGTV, I would have probably done the same thing. Not that I own a TV network, but if one of my managers said anything like that in a meeting with a client, they would be fired pretty much instantly.
