Mike Wallace on 60 Minutes pointed out when Imus and his flunkies used the 'N' word in the past.

Please don't respond by saying rappers use the 'N' word too. It doesn't negate what he did. 2 wrongs don't make a right. Was Sharpton and Jackson oppurtunist? Sure they were. Imus isn't only a Racist but stupid for falling into their trap.

From all accounts, co-workers outside of the show dreaded working with him and found him to be beligerent. I really believe NBC and CBS were looking for an excuse to fire him.

As an American we have to get past this climate where it's ok to use Racist and Sexist terms without consequence. This is not a 1st Amendment issue. He has attacked people who do not have a forum to respond. It's also not a simple stick and stones issue either. No one has ever been hit with a stick or had a stone thrown at them without some words first being said. It was comfortable for Racist to first use the 'N' word and then graduate to Lynching.

I'm not just referring to Racist, but also to Rappers who think it's ok to refer to women as Hoes and Bitches. Next you will have all the 'Pacman'Jones of the world beating up on women, whether they are strippers or not.

If this sentiment is not nipped in the bud it could result in disastreous cirmcumstances.

I'm glad to see Don Imus go and hope he never comes back.

My only comment to your statement is this,

Chinese, Arabs, Caucasians, Native Americans, Irish, Greeks, Catholics, Jews are all fair game and take hits left and right !!

As soon as African Americans take a hit(by a White) the world explodes. yet I watch racist blacks over and over on Fox news put whites down with racist comments, and these are black LEADERS!!! Sorry but as a whitey american It gets very annoying to the point were I find myself starting to hate !!

What Imus did was wrong, definitely WRONG...but good god,
can this get blown out of proportion anymore then it is. The man LOST a 30 year career....

you would think he killed someone...

I don't think what Imus did was wrong. Hell I think it was even funny. So someones FEELINGS got hurt , yep sure lets fire someone now, opps there goes freedom of speech and kiss regular radio bye bye because its over. Maybe what he did was bad because now everytime I see a black chick I think right off oh look a nappy headed ho.

Come on people , it's got to the point were feelings can't even be hurt now. Jesus this country is becoming a joke more and more every day.

Imus will never go to siruis howard says he'd never allow it. So the whole thread is pointless.

That is the thing about the press in general, and the public at large is very fickle, and can change where it's focusing on in a heartbeat.

Especially if something else BIG comes along.

I agree, Don Imus is probably somewhat/somewhere deep inside himself is relieved that the tragedy occured in Blacksburg, VA yesterday.

QUIZ: WHAT WAS THE #1 STORY ON SEPTEMBER 10th, 2001 BEFORE THOSE PLANES TRAGICALLY HIT THE TWIN TOWERS, PENTAGON, AND CRASHED IN WESTERN PENNSYLVANIA?

Anyone remember?

I'll give you hints later on if you don't know. Once I mention it, you will be like, "Oh Yeah!"

Got him(IMUS) off the front page, and out of people's minds.

Now for the next couple of weeks will be hearing about how:

1. The campus police/police in general did a bad job(which I 100% DISAGREE WITH. This is the reason to hate lawyers/and the press in general. They did everything they could. Everyone's hindsight is 20/20 now, of course. And the county/college will most likely get sued over this)

2. How we need better gun control, and how the 2nd Amendment should be wiped out of the Amendments to the Constitution. Spoken by complete morons like Rosie, and any other blowhard who can get a little attention. But, they are entitled to their opinions.

QUIZ: ANYONE KNOW "WHY" THE 2ND AMENDMENT WAS ADDED O THE CONSTITUTION?

I am not looking for your "CURRENT" political beliefs, but the reason(at least the most mentioned reason) why it was put in there.


P.S. Here is a GREAT article written by Jason Whitlock of the Kansas City Star about the whole Don"Bigot" Imus, Reverand"Tawana Brawley, I don't pay any of my bills" Sharpton, and Jesse "Hymie Town" Jackson.

Excellent read, and well put. He even nails the head coach of Rutgers Women's Basketball, who is getting off "scott free", and he is 100% correct on that:

On Imus's show they sure were fair game, along with him being fair game. I don't think a show went by where one of his crew didn't wish for him to die.

Of all the hypocrisy and BS I think thats what surprises me most. There was never any hate involved in the ethnic and sexist jokes, it was just funny stuff..

Maybe it's just me, living in NY all my life and being around all sorts of different ethnic groups I've been on both ends of ethnic jokes.. As long as they weren't hurtful or hateful 99% of the people I know enjoy a good laugh once in awhile, even at their own expense....

I guess sense of humor is another victim of the politically correct word police..

Nope. Try Again

Hint:

This individual was being touted as a possibly being involved in murdering someone. This person was completely unknown(only known by his constiguents. Hint! Hint!) to the public at large until this tragedy happened, and then the press took hold, and went nuts as usual.

Can we please place people like Nancy Grace and Geraldo Rivera as THE WORST PEOPLE IN WORLD LIST permenantly? That would be nice.

I couldn't think of his name but I like my answer better. Condit's situation was a lingering news story that just wouldn't go away. It was kicked around back and forth in the media for a long time. Lizzie was a more recent story that was primed for a big press conclusion. Then the world changed and her screen time was done.

A BIG, GIGANTIC, ED MCMAHON "You are correct, sir!" to you.

Gary Condit. Name ring a bell.

I am not sure about the timelinne here, but he had,, just before 9/11, did the interview with Connie Chung where his answer was mainly, "I can't or won't answer that question at this time Connie."

Now this poor guy DID have a relationship with Chandra Levy(probably an affair), and then people began to think he had her "killed" to keep her mouth shut.

Low and behold, after the true evil people in the world(Geraldo mainly. Satan's wife, Nancy Grace, was not on the scene yet) had pretty much CONDEMENED the guy to actually murderring this poor girl(Duke Case, Jon-Benet's family anyone?) to keep her quiet, her body turns up a year or two(I am not sure when, but at least a year) in a Park in Washington, D.C. Turns out she was murdered in a random act, or scarier, a possible serial killer STILL possibly living in the D.C. area.

This case has never been solved to my knowledge.

His9Condits) career as a Congressman was destroyed, and who knows if he still is married or not. Or if he even has a relationship with his kids.

He did cheat. But did not kill.

But don't tell that to the press. They will decide. And then when they are proven wrong, you won't hear a damn thing for them.

Why?

Because they have already moved on to their next victim/victims long ago.

Having been born and raised in NJ, and living there 24 years(in a suburb about 55 minutes from Manhattan) this falls under the NY/NYC "Myopic view" of the world according to it's citizens.

The Lizzie Grubman was BIG.

IN NYC/Hamptons/Long Island.

It mainly dealt with a little rich girl, and her stupid blunder.

Listening to H. Stern every morning gave me all the info I needed on the story out here in NW Pennsylvania.

But I can assure you nobody else cared(outside of New Yorker's and the surrounding area's in Conneticut and New Jersey)

That was not a big story outside the "New Yorkers world".

Happens all the time.

It is how the press latches on to something, that should not be a big deal or is pointless, and then moves onto it's next victim, regardless of the consequences.

It has already happened.

How does the Media vote for President?

You're right it was local, that's exactly my point. The cable channels were giving it legs. They decided that this was going to be a story of national interest. They had it on the verge of mushrooming into a big news story but then 9-11 happened and it was gone as it deserved to be.


Edit: as you said in your above post:It is how the press latches on to something, that should not be a big deal or is pointless, and then moves onto it's next victim, regardless of the consequences.

I get Steeler's point... Most of the time this 24/7 news does more harm then good... All the news networks care about anymore is how many eyeballs are on the screen. Content means nothing, rating means everything...

And thats why they all called Sharpton over and over last week. A controversially black man? Rating galore!! It doesn't matter the man is a race baiter and a divider...All they want is ratings..

My admiration for actually remembering.

Most people can't/couldn't.

Sorry, all I can afford
