    CBS fires corporate lawyer over Las Vegas shooting remarks

    What is wrong with some people? I seem to ask myself this more and more these days. Wow.

    A CBS corporate lawyer said on social media about the Las Vegas shooting that she wasn't sympathetic because "country music fans are often Republican gun-toters"


    She got fired

    How could an attorney who is employed by a TV network be stupid enough to say that publicly?

    The answer to that question is currently quarantined.

    Discretion in our word choice. Lost in our "me" culture of today.

    She is a mother also and should understand how a parent feels.

    She was educated at Columbia and it just goes to show how liberal colleges education goes.

    I'm not going to speak for John Anthony, but IMO the state of our county is so centered on social media that even people that normally you would consider to be intelligent, become the opposite when they speak politically or emotionally on social media. In turn, the rest of social media follows along or fights back with their own ideals. Which in turn is causing a massive amount of division in this country. Just my thoughts, I'm not John Anthony.

    Have you not noticed the anti Trump hysteria? Multiple people were hoping the dead people were Trump supporters.

    Aside from that, the internet is full of all kinds if idiots .

    No different than any other point in time IMO. These types of people have always existed. We just have access to see how stupid they really are now, which is probably a good thing.

    Just shows you can be very educated and have a high paying job, yet still be dumb as a rock.

    Whatever happened to free speech? I don't see the outpouring of support for her on the free speech front. Goes to show, the freedom of speech does have consequences.
