Dr. Laura Schlessinger, came under fire for repeatedly using the N-word while on-air with a black female caller. The female caller was calling in to ask her opinion about having a loving white husband, but her in-laws are very disrespectful and use the 'N' word in front of her like she's not around. Dr. Laura went off the subject matter, used the 'N' word repeatably as if she wasn't on-air, never answered the question the caller was asking, and in many people's mind, Dr. Laura wanted to start some trouble or controversy and now we know why.
In a recent NYC poll, 35% of the poll had no idea who Dr. Laura was, but after this incident, now we know. Dr. Laura had the nerve to say that she will leave her radio show at the end of her contract year to....wait....get this..."to regain her first amendment rights". No one has FREEDOM OF SPEECH rights on-air. So this is/was a marketing move, so she can get some followers prior to leaving radio. Remember 35% of the #1 city in America, didn't even know who she is prior to her slinging the 'N' word. It's a shame that HATE is what's hot on the block and what sells right now. This was a strategic move to sell, her website, her books, and her YouTube Channel.
