Freedom of Speech

Chelsea Lately is one of the most honest shows on television. While yes, she is blunt and sometimes harsh she tells her opinion (which is most often what everyone else is thinking) and tells the truth. Chelsea Handler is simply exercising her freedom of speech. I watch this show often and came across this clip at tv.com. Handler talks about former Miss California Carrie Prejean and her inability to form a cohesive thought on television. I apologize if Handler’s explicit nature offends you but her points are solid. Prejean now has a book coming out called “Still Standing.” It is astonishing to me that people like her can write books and profit from their public media failures. This clip is humorous and I thought our class would discuss something like this.
