CNN What do you think? Do you buy it -- that this wasn't political? I'd like to believe it wasn't, but until the Imus thing, it seemed all the networks cared about was how much money you made for them. Now it looks to be an entirely different environment. I wouldn't be surprised if Rosie's "controversial" statements were at least a part of this. Like Michael Moore and Bill Maher, Rosie will stir up right-wing attacks no matter where she ends up. It's just that she was probably too blunt and honest for a show like "The View", which likes to talk about current events but doesn't seem to want to ruffle any feathers.
