Paula Dean needs to join the 21st Century. She is a role model for many and has been interviewed by Oprah just recently. She is a hypocrite.
Good for the Food Network for cancelling her contract.
In this day and age there is no reason for her actions and her apology, or the one that was clipped on TVN, is unacceptable in its format.
Her apology was hastily slapped together, and doesn't even sound as though what she did was that's a word she would have to look up in her dictionary of southern culture.

Not to diminish what Paula Deen said but was Friday a slow news day?

A few days ago if you asked me who Paula Deen is I would have answered, "Uh... she's on TV somewhere, right?" For people who don't watch the Food Network and barely cook, it's Paula Who? What she said was awful, her apology was awful and the Food Network did the right thing by firing her. However, Deen and her insult wouldn't have received so much attention if there was other news going on.

Watkins and Davis had a great discussion about Deen but top honors goes to Jake Tapper (subbing for the 6 pm hour of the Situation room) talking to a Reverend (don't remember the name) who was defending Deen. Tapper asked the Reverend about using the "n" word, Reverend, "Who hasn't?" Tapper, "I haven't."

The best thing about the segment on Snowden being charged with espionage was Toobin's info on the Espionage Act and what it coveres.

Oddly, after commercials a couple weeks ago trying to differentiate George Stromboloupolous from George Stephanapolous, there was a commercial for 'This Week with George Stephanapolous". I know CNN likes advertising money but come on!

Even though former Exodus president Chambers has changed his mind, I still don't like him.

Lots of deja vu during Randi Kaye's Zimmerman-Martin 911 tape report. I swear that's been broadcast before. Another great discussion from Clark and Geragos, loved Geragos' comments about 'junk science' which depend largely on subjectivity.

The tapes of Anderson on 'New Day' will have to wait until tomorrow, when I can watch them on the better computer.

I agree with anon 12:17, The Food Network was right for ending Paula Deen's contract--her apology seemed insincere and her attitude towards African-Americans and slavery is offensive, mind boggling and inexcusable. Some of her supporters are only adding fuel to the fire by expressing their anger using the same racial epithets that got Deen in trouble. AC was acting as if he felt Deen was being singled out unfairly and that it was sad that she's going through all of this, but this is HER fault and no one else's.

Whatever one's opinion of her may be, her name should be spelled correctly: D E E N.

To add insult to injury, so to speak, Chris Christie in today's NYPost, said that flags will be lowered on Monday, in light of actor, James Gandolfini's recent death.
Mr Gandolfini is a NJ native, as was Whitney Houston who also succumbed from drugs and alcohol last February.
Now I know there will be those who disagree, but....really, again...?
Both of these people were talented yes, and NJ natives yes, but they did were not global leaders.
They were flawed characters who abused their bodies and provided the world with entertainment.
Neither one discovered a cure for cancer or reinvented the wheel.
I was a fan of both. I never missed an episode of the Sopranos and I have Ms Whitney's CD's that I often play while driving.
But where will this infatuation that was started with Elvis, end?
Next thing you know, that Georgia peach, Paula Deen, who is a master chef, a person who cooks with lard and is now a known bigot, will have flags flown in Georgia for her demise.
Please someone give me a break!

I just want to say I enjoyed AC's New Day appearance, he was funny and sarcastic and seemed to enjoy himself with Kate Bouldan in particular.

I wouldn't call Deen a master chef, she's nothing but a cook, who was in the right place at the right time. And I for one am glad she will be gone drone the Foodnetwork.

'New Day' looks like a fun show. Is it always like this or was that just because Anderson and his sarcasm were on?

Not every show depends on Anderson to be good. It i a good show.

@10:08AM: I was being sarcastic when I called Paula Deen a "master chef who cooks with lard."
If she was a master chef she would know that lard is basically unhealthy.
Sorry you did not get the sarcasm.

Yeah but Anderson made it MUCH better that day.

But the right person can make a good show of an average show and the fun all happened because of Anderson's sarcasm and the bickering between him and the hosts. That's why I was asking if it is always like that/they are like this. Chris doesn't exactely come off as particularly humorous and rarely smiles..

An article in USA Today referred to Paula Deen, like it or not, as a "master chef," could she get here career on track again?
People are very forgiving and in time like everything else, this too
shall pass.
