Fox Businesss Don Imus had a delicious trifecta Thursday trashing three perilously liberal journalists in less than 90 seconds.
After telling Jonathan Alter to shove his request to come on the program and hawk his new book, Imus called Howard Fineman a sniveling little weasel and Jon Meacham a phony b*st*rd (video follows with transcript and commentary):
DON IMUS: "Im in a horrible mood because of a couple of reasons. And I dont like it when people tell me what a great friend they are of mine, because I know its nonsense. And heres, you dont need to tell me that youre a good friend of mine. Just be one."
"Anyway, heres an email I got from Jonathan Alter. Remember him from Newsweek? And it begins, Hi Don. Hope you are well. Missed you at the Skip(?) deal. I was out of town. And then this: Im sorry I havent been a better friend and just come crawling up to your *ss when I need something, but I do need something: you putting me on your air to hawk my new book.
"I would like to now write an on-air missive to Mr. Alter. Take your book and shove it up your... You couldnt get on this program with a certified check. You and that sniveling little weasel Howard Fineman or the phony b*st*rd Jon Meacham. Are you kidding me? Thanks, nice to hear from you. Hope youre well. Have a great day you son of a b*tch."
Now THATS entertainment.
He should’ve called Alter a nappy-headed ho.
After reading his comments, I think I need to start listening to Imus again. I was not a fan, but I must say the times they
did the routine with the “Irish Cardinal,” I would have a minute or two of uncontrollable laughter.
Imus did not like Hillary as I recall so another positive mark for Imus in the morning.
It’s not like they can sue him for libel or slander.
This is how Imus talks all the time.
It got old years ago.
Imus got old years ago.
Good Morning & God bless....
I would have loved to hear Don Imus vs Don Rickles (in his prime).
I’ve listened a little bit to Imus over the years, and though he is often politically obtuse, he displays a strange aura of brutally honest integrity. Bob
Wow. He actually made sense for once
Except Imus has made a career out of kissing the posteriors of many phony, puffed-up libs like Frank Rich, Mo Dowd, and others giving them undeserved praise when they should have been scorned. He’ll probably get around to smooching Alter’s behind at some future date.
This is Imus' oldest stichk. This will be chewed over day after day until Alter appears on the program to "hawk" his book by which time he will have had $1 million worth of publicity.
Imus has done this time after time, usually with left-wing personalities such as Jonathan Alter.
Same old Imus. Alter should have contributed to the Ranch first and he would have been fine.
Just wait a few years. Rickles is nearing his prime.
LOL! You are absolutely correct!!
Imus in his crude but accurate way identifies the dirty little secret of the book publishing world these days.
The only people who get published today are those who run the talk shows and their chattering class buddies, because they can push their own books and their buddies’ books on the air to drive up sales.
Do you really think Bill O’Reilly’s or Dick Morris’, or Sean Hannity’s books are that great? No. They just get all that free advertising, so the publishers who are in the business to make a buck not enlighten the masses are going to publish any drivel these people put out.
Imus, the oldest liberal alive. He is the typical New Jersey style liberal idiot thug.
Because Rush gives his money to charities other than Imus', Imus blasted Limbaugh's former drug addiction. I found this incredibly hypocritical coming from Imus whose addictions are well known.
Listened to Imus twice in past several weeks, and turned him off twice, remembering why I never listen.
Nothing particularly stupid about the remark. A lot of the basketball team did have nappy hair.
As to the “Ho” part, that is a fair cop on the entire Rutgers student body. They are what they are.
A few months before whilst playing a game against a military academy team the Rutgers student body was echoing the chant “F@ck Navy! F@ck Navy! “ with great gusto. There are names for people who want to engage in that and Imus properly put one forth.
Not long ago a young prostitute who ran a web cam service out of his dorm room committed suicide and the university made a great show of prosecuting his roomate for uploading views of the activity on a free venue.Theft of services I guess.
You can be upset over the hair comments if you want, and I don’t like a lot of Imus’ politics or his crassness but... the basketball team never did squat to distance themselves from the immorality regularly flaunted by the student body at Rutgers so “Ho” is a fair description.
Oh, no, not that. Iass showed his true PC colors with that one. “I call ‘em like I see ‘em! Nobody censures Don Iass! Well, except when it comes to a certain ethnic group, then I roll over like a whipped puppy.”
All hat, no cowboy.
Angela Lansbury in a Cowboy Hat
Imus does not suffer fools, gladly or otherwise. I catch him occasionally in the morning, when everyone else is on break. Usually, I just listen for news updates or Warner Wolf.
Yeah Mike Barnicle, that was really funny. The only segment worth anything.
He lost me when he coerced everyone to invest in his ranch.
Now that was a scam. That and his going off the deep end with and about his vegetarian wife.
” All hat, no cowboy”
And a vegan cattle ranch to boot.
“Angela Lansbury in a Cowboy Hat has a moment of clarity. Rare, and not enough to make me listen to that wrinkled up old buzzard w/ a (now aging) trophy wife.”
Don Imus is almost too ugly for radio.
Imus, himself is a phony B*st*rd. Would never want to be his friend.
I hear you and comments may definitely have been deserved. However, I just would prefer not to talk that way unless I address the party I am insulting directly. Keeps things simple. My point is these three had a collective case of the vapors and demanded action. Other people like you me, Hannity and a number of others felt it was not a nice remark but it was within his rights to say it...
What always amazed me is how these socialist commielibs in the media suddenly turn into raging capitalists whenever they have a book to sell or a media contract to sign.
If they truly believed the pap they spin, they should work for peanuts and give all the proceeds to charity.
These people threw him under the bus but very few people stood behind Imus and he even craps on them too.
Sounds like the old Imus woke up for a little while.
