“I remember when TV networks believed in the First Amendment,” Jindal wrote. “It is a messed up situation when Miley Cyrus gets a laugh, and Phil Robertson gets suspended.”

Here is the Governor’s full statement:

Phil Robertson and his family are great citizens of the State of Louisiana. The politically correct crowd is tolerant of all viewpoints, except those they disagree with. I don’t agree with quite a bit of stuff I read in magazine interviews or see on TV. In fact, come to think of it, I find a good bit of it offensive. But I also acknowledge that this is a free country and everyone is entitled to express their views. In fact, I remember when TV networks believed in the First Amendment. It is a messed up situation when Miley Cyrus gets a laugh, and Phil Robertson gets suspended

On Wednesday, December 18, the A&E network suspended Phil Robertson for comments he made about homosexuals in an interview with GQ magazine.
