In the news yesterday, tv's "Full Frontal" host Samantha Bee apologized for calling Ivanka Trump a vulgar word during her show's monologue. In a tweet, Bee said her words were " inappropriate and inexcusable.  I crossed a line and I deeply regret it."   Though ABC cancelled the Rosanne show, the TBS network has not cancelled Bee's show. Is there a double-standard in today’s media?
