I was shocked again a few hours later when ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey, another former boss, disposed of corporate double-speak or delay and laid out clearly, in 19 words, that they were getting out of the Roseanne business: “Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show.

Channing Dungey showed how to navigate the dilemma, with a statement strong enough to leave little doubt about where her company stands on the issues of racism, bigotry, and ignorance, and short enough for a president to read on Twitter.
