I listened to Imus for about 2 yr. Then, I decided he was an idiot and changed morning drivetime channels. There are free speech issues, but Imus overextended his welcome in my car.
That is the extent to which this should have gone.Turn the dial & let the free market determine whether Imus stays or goes. We now travel down the slippery slope of losing freedom of speech & thought while the race pimps create new victims.Here comes the fairness doctrine.
So did a lot of other people. His ratings have been declining steadily. This probably played a role in his termination.
And you're calling IMUS an idiot? :)
What free speech issues? What government agency was involved in Imus' firing? I don't think even the FCC said anything.
There are concerns that the left may try to use Imus to pass laws curtailing speech, but that has nothing to do with Imus getting canned.
