Another radio station pulls 'Baby It's Cold Outside' from the airwaves

It's a debate that's reignited every year as the calendars flip to November and the temperatures grow frostier: Is "Baby, It's Cold Outside" good, or bad?

The "CBS This Morning" the co-anchor expressed her affinity for the tune penned in 1944 by Frank Loesser.

A Madison radio station has pulled a now-controversial seasonal song from its airwaves, a station leader said.

Since then, Canadian broadcasters Bell Media, CBC Radio and Rogers Media have also made a decision to drop the song this year.

"At last check, the votes were running more than 90 percent in the song's favor".

"Please count me in the 90 percent", King said after the segment. "Ever since Cosby was accused of drugging women, I hear the date rape thing all the time" in reference to the song. "I think my father would be furious at that", she told NBC News.

The song, written by composer Frank Lesser, was first performed by him and his wife Lynn garland at a family party, as humorous sketches, hinting that it was time to go.

She even shared her love for the song on Instagram.

"People are calling in because it's basically triggering this reaction in them", Dickerson said, "These are people who've been through an experience". "Back then it didn't mean you drugged me".

O'Donnell, citing footage the show aired of Esther Williams and Ricardo Montalbán performing the song in "Neptune's Daughter", called the performance "somewhat coercive" and said that she was rethinking the song.

Critics took exception to its lyrics, citing the moment he tells her "don't hold out" and particularly when she asks: 'Say, what's in this drink?' Now I understand that when the song was written, it was perceived differently. "I'm so irritated by this!"
