Gov. Jindal issues statement on Phil Robertson suspension

The suspension of Phil Robertson from the hit show 'Duck Dynasty' by A & E has the whole state of Louisiana reacting, including Governor Bobby Jindal.
The decision by A&E Network to suspend 'Duck Dynasty' star Phil Robertson has people all across the ArkLaTex reacting on Thursday, including Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal.

In a statement released Thursday morning Jindal said the following:

"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 "

Robertson's comments were made in a
GQ interview published on Wednesday.
