The A&E cable television network's suspension of "Duck Dynasty" patriarch Phil Robertson from the hit reality show has drawn criticism from the governor of Robertson's home state. The network says Robertson was placed on "hiatus" after he gave an interview in GQ magazine disparaging gays as sinners akin to adulterers and swindlers. Governor Bobby Jindal issued a brief statement on the matter Thursday. Jindal didn't offer an opinion on Robertson's comments but said everyone entitled to express a view. He added: "It is a messed-up situation when Miley Cyrus gets a laugh, and Phil Robertson gets suspended." The show is produced around the Robertson family's home base in Ouachita Parish.
