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.

Exactly right. For Sharpton and Jackson and the NOW gang, this was spring training. Imus was just a warmup. Now they'll go after actual conservatives with their letter-writing and boycott campaigns.

Imus wasn't a conservative, but he wasn't a liberal, either. He was a flip-flopping entertainer guided by ratings and pandering principles more than ideology.
