Dr. Laura Schlessinger to Retire From Radio, 'Regain First Amendment Rights' (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Aug 17th 2010 11:43PM
Appearing on 'Larry King Live' (weekdays, 9PM ET on CNN) Dr. Laura Schlessinger, who had been in hot water ever since she dropped 11 n-bombs in five minutes during her radio show last week, announced she will be retiring from radio.

"The reason (for retiring) is I want to regain my First Amendment rights, she explained. "I want to be able to say what's on my mind and in my heart and what I think is helpful and useful without somebody getting angry, some special interest group deciding this is the time to silence a voice of dissent and attack affiliates, attack sponsors."

While Schlessinger is retiring from radio, she promises she is not retiring from offering her unadulterated opinion to an eager public.

But instead of driving around the country in the back of truck, screaming out her special brand of tough-love wisdom through a pink megaphone like we've always wished she would, Dr. Laura later mentioned to King that she will be blogging more. Boring.

The First Admendment only guarantees that the GOVERNMENT cannot shut you up.

It does NOT say that the PEOPLE cannot shut you up!

She will definitely NOT be missed by me! I have always found her to be extremely offensive and opinionated and not qualified to give advice in any way, since she lacks compassion and is on one big EGO TRIP.

not a fan anymore

Her botox and what ever else fillers she is using on her face is not working.

This woman is so self absorbed. The only scarier thing is when she will take to the streets with her hate. She does not like any minority. Her view is so limited. I can't understand why anyone would ask her anything about there life. If you were standing on a bridge ready to jump this woman would say "JUMP"
because she thinks she is quip with her responses and cute. I won't miss her. No one should miss her....D-E-L-I-A-H Sweet, responsible, smart....and most of all loving. Here is a real woman.

its sad that white americans will never give up on causing terra and destruction.they point the finger and scream their innocent.now about this Dr.Loser lady saying things she already knew at her age even would start trouble.that clearly proves what i just
stated above.these are the type of ppl that should be pointed out for being stupid.and to speak against this post is stupid as well.if u so called ppl like watterlilly, who made a dumb post are one of the type "race" im speaking of.how long will u ppl carry on race as a major issue in our lives. when u ppl have made problems worst then a race issue. and larry king, your no different he is from a hate group as well.why would cnn have sum1 so boring as larry king. enough of this maddness.the lady asked for it and she must pay for what she was looking for.

There was a time when I enjoyed Dr. Laura's show, but I soon came to realized that she's an arrogant, flipant and smart aleck person. She's always interrupting people on her radio program, when they are trying to explain their situation. She has no idea what a grieving person is going through when they've lost someone, because she hated her parents when they were alive. Perhaps it's a good thing she stepping down. I don't think I will miss her.

I blame Obama because we ARE losing so many things since he became our so called President. He is a MUSLIM. But that's ok for you folks who are blind to what is going on. Keep your head in the sand then.
Or better yet, when Obama tells you to jump...as the saying goes: Just Do It!

I have to wonder if she was pulled off the last part of her show that day and perhaps told her contract would not be renewed at the end of the year. The timing, the comments...just too much there to dismiss this idea.
