It was just announced on the "Mike and the Mad Dog Show" on WFAN (Imus's home base): Imus is out of a job on radio as well.

He will not even be on the air tomorrow.

Sage Barset has a theory that Hillary is behind this, as if she’s been lying/laying in wait to go after Imus.

DH heard, on the radio, that the firing came after CBS spoke with Sharpton and Jackson. Is this so?

Call it what you will. He’s an opportunistic race baiter.

Hillary’s use of a black accent in the black church could qualify as racist too.

Has this country come to this?

Hmmmm.... check this out: http://www.komotv.com/news/entertainment/6940132.html

SEATTLE (AP) - Television star Jason Wahler spewed racial and sexual invective at a police officer when he was arrested over the weekend after punching a hotel security guard and passing out drunk in a third floor hallway, a Seattle Police Department report said...

Last month, the judge in that case sentenced him to 60 days in jail - a sentence he was scheduled to serve beginning in May - and ordered him to attend Alcoholics Anonymous classes and a one-day program at the Museum of Tolerance for using racial slurs.

They make disparaging remarks about people who put themselves out there as a public figure. They are fair game. ... Rush et al, radio talk shows are very safe, because they know the rules.

The rules just changed today. Do you think the liberal PC Police will respect them and stay away from Rush et al? Is this the last rule change the libs will make?

I heard on the radio yesterday (Medved, I think) that Imus once made a reference the "thieving Jews"; when asked to apologize, he apologized for his comment having been "redundant".

Good riddance.

Imus was running on empty for some time...I think the brass wanted him out, it was just a matter of time...it was as if they were waiting in the shadows, for him to step over the line...by firing him they probably saved a bucket of severance payout, and termination penalties

Hilary needs to sweep the airways since radio is the only place where criticism of her is heard.

She’ll have Fineman, Alter, Jeff Greenfield, and all the butt-boys Imus gave air-time to and whose books he promoted, giving their oh, so reasoned and measured support.

This was a political hit. There was no groundswell on this Rutgers thing. It was too spontaneous way after the fact.

And yes, the “Fairness Doctrine” — you know, the free speech gag that says it ain’t fair when listeners don’t support Air America or the Mario Cuomo Show so we gonna dog Conservative talk shows off the air — will be a reality before Hillary’s dainty boots hit the campaign trail.

Gramsci is alive and running the DNC.

The Clintons are adept at the use of surrogates.

The people who the Clinton's admire refer to them as useful idiots. The Clinton's are the puppeteer's with Sharpton, the Congressional Black Caucus and the drive by media willingly becoming the marionettes.

Geez, I’m so conflicted. I can’t stand that crooked poseur Imus, but to have him axed by Sharpton and Jackson? What to think? What to think?

Is being fired from “See-BS” a bad thing? I would think of it as a promotion.

You ought to put a warning up before posting 'that' picture.

I have enough trouble sleeping as it is.

It sets race relations back because of the obvious double standard. Sharpton and Jackson and rappers not only get away with saying racial, hateful things they are even celebrated for it by the left and the media.

A white shock-jock makes a stupid racial comment and is dragged through national press for days, forced to grovel, then that isn’t even enough and loses his radio show.

Related is the Duke LAX case, presumed guilty. Where does it end with blacks in America? How much hypocrisy is OK?
