CNN's Phillips Revisits 'Duck Dynasty' Uproar, But Lauds Family: 'Doing Something Right'


<p>CNN'S Kyra Phillips zeroed on the controversy surrounding Phil Robertson's remarks about homosexuality on the 26 March 2014 edition of <em>New Day</em>, as she interviewed Robertson's son Willie Robertson and his wife, Korie. Phillips noted the "firestorm" after Phil Robertson's interview with GQ, and asked his son, "Is that what you believe?"<br /><br />However, the correspondent went on to compliment Willie Robertson and his family for how well they apparently have raised their children:<br /><br />KYRA PHILLIPS: You know, guys, one thing that really stood out to me as a mom – I mean, this couple is definitely doing something right with their five kids. They've got three biological, two adopted. They're involved in this orphanage. And these kids have fame, money, everything at their fingertips. And I said, how do you keep those kids grounded? How do you keep them from being a Justin Bieber or a Lindsay Lohan? And, bottom line: they love – they love family, and their faith is number-one. And you look at those kids and go – wow, all right, you definitely are doing something right.</p>
