I have to say I have never seen the show for two reason: I don't like reality TV, and I despise reality TV which makes celebrities out of white trash. Just because the Robertson family has a million dollar duck call business doesn't mean they're not white trash. Money has nothing to do with it. An associate of mine has told me the show is so popular because the Robertson's are so stupid. Her comment to me was "you don't even need to watch it, just listen to them talk to find yourself laughing hysterically." Which brings me back to the PR extravaganza thing. From what I've read, the executives at A&E television knew that Phil (?) Robertson was a Judgmental, Crazy Christian simply from his conversations on the set. So why would they arrange for him to have an interview with GQ unless they were hoping he would open his mouth and shit would fly out. Evidently, there was a representative from A&E present, most likely to see which juicy tidbits could be blown up out of proportion.
