Letter: Keep politics out of Deen’s showTalk about politics. That’s what the Food Network’s sacking of Paula Deen’s programing is all about. Several million viewers should tell that network that if this happens, they will be viewers no longer. Ads are what keep these networks going, and if enough people quit that network, so will the advertisers.
I support not using defamatory remarks about another person, but I am sure a great many of us have done so in our past, and have our regrets for doing so. Deen has admitted her errors of the past and asked forgiveness, and that should be granted. Keep the politics out of this.
