Media reacts to Brooke's firing

I am still pissed beyond words and I'll probably be for a while. I'm not quite ready yet to analyze my feelings towards this, so I'm going to post a rundown of the media's reaction and what *YOU* can do if you are angry/disappointed/sad.

Entertainment Weekly: The original post that broke the news "Exclusive: 'Grey's Anatomy' Discharges Dr. Hahn."

AfterEllen: "'Grey's Anatomy Fires Brooke Smith, De-Gays Melissa George's Character" ~ Eight pages of comments!! Eight pages! Within less than one day! If you are an AE regular then you'll know that one or two pages of comments are good for a post, the very popular vlogs get about 4 pages of comment (on average). That means something!

Dorothy Surrenders: "November isn't for lesbians"

Entertainment Weekly: "Brooke Smith's 'Grey's Anatomy' ouster is not right and not okay" ~ A great letter to Brooke Smith

LA Times Blog: "Critic's Notebook: Brooke Smith's firing is bad for 'Grey's Anatomy,' and the world" ~ Great analysis, talks about the fact that Brooke isn't 'hot' according to Hollywood standards

E! online: "Greys's De-Gayed: Brooke Smith Fired, Melissa George No Longer a Lesbian"

Chicago Tribune: "'Grey's Anatomy' abruptly gets rid of a gay character"

People magazine: "Brooke Smith Axed From Grey's Anatomy"

Perez Hilton: "Grey's Is Getting Un-Gay!"

"Glaad Responds to Grey's Firing" ~ very, very lame article!! Boo you!

PopEater: "No More Girl-On-Girl for 'Grey's Anatomy'"

TVAddict.com: "A Grey's Anatomy Policy Change"

Wow. I think that's it.
