Doris? (K Goodwin)
Cue the crickets!
No. Not yet. But last night you could already sense the guns were being laid for other radio talkshow hosts. This is the first shot in a very long war.
Steven A. Smith has been all over ESPN commenting on this. He is giving kudos to CBS Radio & MSNBC for "setting the example". Fortunately I think Steven-A is wrong. MSNBC was clearly weighing the economics of the situation before firing Imus. It wasn't until several major sponsors jumped ship that they made the decision.
Prediction: Michael Savage is next on the hit parade.
From a purely business standpoint, why would they want to make any major contractual moves until they know whether the merger is going to be approved? It would be stupid to be bidding against eachother.
The future of satellite radio is not really clear to me. Many of the programs strike me as the broadcasting equivalent of a "MySpace" website. Who's really listening?
liberals may be good company at a cocktail party in Vail, but you wouldnt want to share a foxhole with them.
I saw Nora O’Donnell on TV earlier this week and began a question to a guest by saying “The viewers at home can decide whether the Duke players are guilty or innocent but let’s say they are not guilty for a moment...” I laughed my ass off; seems like she has doubts despite all that has been made public. The viewers can decide? Obviously, some hatred and illogic coming from those sultry lips.
Groucho/Imus: Hello, Imus be going
I cannot stay I came to say Imus be going
I’m glad I came but just the same, Imus be going
Deidre/Margaret Dumont: For my sake you must stay
For if you go away
You’ll spoil this party I am throwing
Mike Barnicle: I’ll do a week or two
I’ll stay the summer through
Imus: But I am telling you
Imus be going...
They got Imus. Now they’re aiming for Rush, Savage, and a few others on the right.
I think that was for today only; read somewhere Mike and the Mad Dog may move temp to that slot and also from what I heard
Mike Barnicle was temp. taking over the Imus broadcast
I love “The Beautiful People” tag. That’s my new slogan for all lefty’s in my office. It will drive them insane. Throwing IMUS under the bus somehow validates how they feel.
I'm stealing that.
I can’t stand David Gregory,he is such a putz!
Now that was a great story!
Yes, David Gregory was a regular on the show.
Diedre Imus had to cancel her “Green This!” book tour.
. . or, as Charlton Heston is credited as once saying, “Political Correctness is Tyranny with Manners.” -
So, how true, how true, Live by political correctness, die by tyranny with manners.
. . or vice versa . . either way
Just saw on the news that NJ governor is in critical condition as he was hurrying to meet with Imus and the women's basketball team.
It is sickening how Hillary, Obama, Corizen and others are inserting themselves into this situation. Hillary is acting far more outraged than she did when SNL mentioned how ugly Chelsea was or something like it.
A Salon on-line hit piece article notes that Rush used the "ho" word on a previous show.
This will get the ball rolling. Those two ho-boys, Jackson and Sharpton, must be reveling in their glory right now.
Imus' big mistake was apologizing. Hope Rush doesn't do the same. The best defense is a massive but precise counter attack.....like right to the jugular of the fascists who think they're running this country right now.
I smiled all the way through this article.
He isn't hurting for money. He tried to save his job because he liked the power he had and he liked being a part of the clique of the media/political elite. That's Imus' punishment for his failed joke-- the awareness that he's a nobody now who can't do anything to boost book and music sales and that he has no friends among the people he had on his show. I'm guessing Imus goes into a depression. Hell, I might. That's really a pitiful situation to find yourself in because of one stupid comment.
This isn’t some O&A “insider’s scoop”. Keith, himself, came out the very night Imus was canned from MSNBC to say that he could now go public about the fact that he went to the bigwigs to support pulling the plug on Imus’ show.
Good to know it is true.
Thanks! Good article!
A word of advise,,,,,If you want good and loyal friends make sure they are not RATS!
It has been my experience that you have to keep an eye out for those who “stand behind” you.
Remember, — That is where you keep your wallet.
I have always thought of this as the ultimate, self-centered, liberal trait. These days, however, I have begun to think of it as just a lack of character, since we seem to see it in so many on our own team these days.
“Think about that unctuous NBC rumpswab David Gregory.”
"This campaign is all about censorship," Kincaid said Friday, addressing a discussion on the Fairness Doctrine sponsored by the conservative Free Congress Foundation. "The left has tasted blood after the Imus affair."
"Democrats in Congress want to bring back the Fairness Doctrine, a federal regulation that required broadcasters to present both sides of a controversial issue. The FCC enforced the rule from 1949 to 1987, when it was dropped during the Reagan administration."
Gee, I'm guessing the FCC and the court system through the threats of using both.
It seems like conservatives almost have a disfunction in sympathizing with people who hate them. Why else would Hastert and the Republican leadership whine about the FBI searching Jefferson’s congressional office? The Imus Affair is a pure lib on lib event.
Have you seen his Trophy Wife?? What did he win, dogcatcher of the year??
Pray for W and Our Troops
i kind of hope IMan rises from the ashes and reinvents himself, could be kind of intersting. Plus watching the revenge grudge match would be priceless.
Here’s hoping IMan comes out swinging, if purely for the show.
ps: add me to ping list pls
