(Newser) – Ratings for Duck Dynasty have taken a turn for the worse in the weeks following the Phil Robertson interview controversy. According to Variety, 6.65 million viewers tuned in to watch Wednesday night's episode of the A&E show. That's down nearly 2 million from the 8.5 million viewers who watched the season-five premiere last week. And the 8.5 million figure is down from the 11.77 million who tuned in for the fourth-season premiere last August. Of course, the show is still beating the competition.

It's the "state run" media trying to show a person who doesn't follow the "PC" rules of today, will fail. This PC crap needs to be corrected, people are still entitled to their opinions, it's a RIGHT! People shouldn't be "cornholed" from having a opinion that's different !
