IMUS BASHERS FACE VENGEANCE
November 29, 2007 — ALL those politically correct types who piled on last April when Don Imus went down for making his bad “nappy-headed ho’s” joke had better duck and cover on Monday, when the I-Man goes back to work on WABC Radio.
“I think he will have some scores to settle,” the station’s general manager, Phil Boyce, told Page Six yesterday.
It is doubtful Imus will ever forgive CBS chief Les Moonves, who fired him, or regular guest Tim Russert, the host of NBC’s “Meet the Press,” who was “an invisible man” while Imus was under attack.
Private eye Bo Dietl, who will join Imus in the 8 a.m. hour on Monday, also named Harold Ford Jr. and Al Roker as two Imus regulars who abandoned him in his hour of need. “They turned their backs on him so fast,” Dietl said yesterday. “Al Roker had his stomach stapled - he should have had his mouth stapled.”
One longtime listener wondered, “Will Imus ever give Newsweek editors another chance to plug their books on his show since they cut and ran when Al Sharpton started his crusade to get him off the air?”
Dietl said Imus’ controversial remark “brought attention to that Rutgers basketball team. They really benefited. It turned out to be a positive thing.” Dietl expects “a kinder, gentler Imus” next week, “but I don’t know how long that will last.”
LOL. I was just coming here to post this.
I really don’t want a “kinder, gentler” Imus.
Does anyone else notice that Joe and Mika seem to hate each other?
LOL...yes. And I can't stand either one of them.
Good Friday morning, ya’ll.
They’re out after Rudy.
Watch Senator John Tester with the sound off and wonder why he is in the US Senate.
Then turn the sound on when he speaks and continue wondering the same thing.
So the crew has decided that this hit on Giuliani is pretty much nonsense and he married the lady anyway, so no big deal.
Then Mika reveals she is trying to get a sit down interview with Judith. Well, there you go.
Happy Monday, all.
It’s the Don Imus debut and I am having trouble streaming wabc.
Going to try again.
The lineup seems to be Doris Kearns Goodwin, John MacCain & Chris Dodd - live from Town Hall in Manhattan - Imus did say Lou & Bernie are back with him.... so is Rob Bartlet and Larry Kinney.
If anyone has the RFD cable channel - they are streaming live on TV
make that McCain - too early I guess
It will be so nice not to have to listen to Mika & Joe
Larry is back! Yaay.
Huge AMEN to that.
Reganesque has a thread which I link to here: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1933880/posts
Chris Dodd and the Green Ho coming up.
And here’s John McCain. McCain has promised that he will win in New Hampshire. We’ll see.
McCain needs to drop the “my friend” business.
Don Imus is still one of the best interviewers in the business. One of the others is Brit Hume. Two such different people.
Interesting that they are doing a live show from Radio City Music Hall? Didn’t hear a peep about that beforehand.
I heard Bill Bennet would be a guest on Mourning Joe. Maybe Erin Burnett will apologize again for her Monkey comments.
Joe started the show discussing how Satan is going to go negative in Iowa because she's looooooosing. Mika was sad.
Even I’ve tuned in this morning to hear Imus. I’m not a huge Imus fan- but I was furious about the whole spectacle and the way he was treated.
Arrggghh, he just has to have his wife on. Ugh!
