Did Ellen deserve to get kicked off American Idol?

Ellen DeGeneres is leaving "American Idol" after one season as a judge for the hit Fox TV singing contest.

A person close to the show says DeGeneres won't return for the 10th season, which gives 'American Idol' two vacancies on its judging panel. Sources also say the suits behind the show wanted Ellen gone. Fox has yet to announce a replacement for Simon Cowell, who left at the end of last season to start a new talent show for the network.

Very odd poll: Is it

deserve to get kicked off?

deserved to be removed as a judge?

I let Fox and the `American Idol' producers know that this didn't feel like the right fit for me?

she told the network she would delay any action?

A very odd poll

Does it matter if she is no longer a judge?

Why phrase this as though she was kicked off instead of the more accurate chose to leave? Terrible, stupid, biased poll.

Since I never watch the show, I didn't know she was "on."

If what she passes off for "dancing" on her show is any indication, she has no basis for judging talent.

Well, if she had been "kicked" off, maybe a fair question. She wasn't, so what are you trying to accompllish?

Yes. She added nothing to the show and, frankly, she's starting to look like an albino raccoon.

Internet polls are spreading !

That poll respondents don't know...are not aware of the facts, is clearly demonstrated by the follwing poll:

QUESTION: A New York summer is hotter because the Earth is closer to the SUN
in the summer.

True or False ?

I wish there was a third option: "Who cares?"

The fit was a media empire that uses propaganda and innuendo and calls it news, and Ellen, one of those people who like to tell it like it is. Fox was bound to remove Ellen for being "too truthful" and not unfair and imbalanced enough for FOX's purposes.
