Here is the news: NEW YORK, May 31 /PRNewswire/ -- As Taking The Long Way debuts at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 best-selling albums chart this week, with first week's sales of 525,829, the Dixie Chicks have become the first female group in chart history to have three albums debut at #1, breaking the record the Chicks established in 2002 when the group's last studio album, Home, debuted at #1 and made them the first female group ever to have two albums debut at #1.
How does this play in wingnutia? Let's check with the brain trust at "straw men are us"
"NO ONE prevented the Dixie Chicks from saying what they did about the president. They were not fined or imprisoned. The fact that they are "changing their minds" about their apology is proof of the lack of censorship.
and from the comments: "Remember during the National Endowment for the Arts debates when conservative were accused of trying to censor artists? They weren't saying that the art should be banned, just that taxpayers shouldn't be forced to pay for filth.
Can someone find me a "liberal" who claimed the Chicks were censored? Clearly they were not being censored. No matter, any straw man will do when your hero is below 30%.
