Re: Whoopi Goldberg defends Vick?


Hello All.

I had an emergency late last night, so this
mornings newsletter is a little late.

A few readers have sent in responses about a story
in which Whoopi Goldberg defends Michael Vick.

Here is the full article.

NEW YORK (AP) — So much for the sedate alternative to
Rosie O’Donnell on “The View.” Whoopi Goldberg used
her first day on the daytime chat show Tuesday to
defend football star Michael Vick in his dogfighting case.

Goldberg said that “from where he comes from” in the
South, dogfighting isn’t that unusual.

“It’s like cockfighting in Puerto Rico,” she said.
“There are certain things that are indicative to
certain parts of the country.”

The Atlanta Falcons quarterback pleaded guilty
to federal dogfighting charges last week,
admitting that he provided money for a dogfighting
ring that operated on his Virginia property and
helped kill six or eight pit bulls. Vick grew
up in Newport News, Va.

Goldberg was selected by series creator Barbara
Walters to replace O’Donnell, whose stormy tenure
on the ABC program lasted less than a year.

In the Vick discussion, Goldberg served notice
that she won’t shy away from controversy.

Co-host Joy Behar looked horrified at Goldberg.

“How about dog torture and dog murdering?”
Behar asked.

For many people, dogs are sport, Goldberg
replied, and it appeared it took awhile for
Vick to realize that he was up against serious

“I just thought it was interesting, because
it seemed like a light went off in his head
when he realized this was something that the
entire country didn’t appreciate,” she said.

Vick has been suspended indefinitely by the
National Football League and will be sentenced
on the dogfighting charges in December.
He apologized and asked for forgiveness
upon entering his plea in federal court last

P.S. It’s hard to believe that ANYONE can
defend Michael Vick, ESPECIALLY another

What he has done is COMPLETELY indefensible,
but the fact that Ms Goldberg has chosen
to publicly defend him shows that some
people just DON’T get it yet.

Pets are NO LONGER just property.

They are vital parts of our lives.

They have rights.

Michael Vick deserves to be punished with
the FULL EXTENT of the law.

The “old ways” are NO LONGER

It’s Your Pet. Heal Them At Home!

Best Wishes,

Dr Andrew Jones, DVM
