Miller, you hit the nail on the head. If it weren't for the slump in their sales you wouldn't see an apology or interview. Celebraties get to use thier "workplace" as a public forum for their views, something the general public doesn't have access to. Someday they may learn (but I doubt it) that when you open your mouth to voice an opinion there is a good chance some people won't agree with you and may react to it...it's called consequenceOriginally posted by Miller
What I find fascinating is that the Dixie Chicks are upset that theiur fans are using their individual right to protest, protected by the First Amendment, to protest the Dixie Chicks. So, these artists believe that they should be given some slack because they utilized their First Amendment right to protest the war. Yet, these same Dixie Chicks want to deny their fans the right to protest the group by speaking out against them and not buying their albums. That's the definition of hypocritical.
