Why would these people go on "Tyra!"?

Exposure. I don't know how many viewers Tyra! has, but I'd imagine many of them had never heard of this group. And I'm sure their website got a few hits because of the appearance. I think a better question is, why would Tyra have them on? Why do people continue to give them airtime?

I'm willing to bet that people who watch Tyra! haven't heard of a lot of things.

Sad to say, but I knew exactly what this topic was going to be about before I opened it up. I won't go into the long and silly past of Phelps and the beginnings of the Church, maybe the BBC covers that in the later parts of the show. But suffice to say most people here in Topeka realize that Fred and his family are somewhat of a running joke that just isn't funny.

Tyra probably had them on the show to either (a) make people aware of the horrible hate or (b, and more likely) draw some contreversy so people would watch the show. Idk, I haven't watched the clip yet, just guessing.

I'm surprised nothing violent has happened yet. One of these days all that picketing, and spreading gibberish is gonna get somebody hurt or killed. I personally liked the part where somebody threw a cup of soda at them. I wish it hadn't hit the little kid, but instead the dumb ***** in front of the camera.

Poo on the Phelps'. :-t
