Imus's mistake in this mess was that he was too nice, which as a listener shocked me... He apologized over and over, he went on Sharpton's radio show, on the Today's show, always apologizing...2 things wrong with that approach... That kept the issue alive and kept Sharpton's face in the news constantly.. And when you are wrestling around in the mud you have to get dirty, Imus should have got nasty and dirty with Sharpton, thats the only way to deal with scum like him...
I agree with this post. Until the merger occurs, he will not be hired by either satellite.
The second mistake (the first was the racist remark) Imus made was going on Sharpton's radio show. He should have immediately gone directly to Rutgers and had a dialog with them. He should have ignored that racist blowhole sham Reverend.
The thing that surprised me the most this week was the lack of support Imus got from the liberal elite media. The same (the real) whores, his daily guests, that used his show to sell their books, newspapers, magazines, news shows-- hawking their liberal agenda. Let's be clear, these were the bulk of his guests. Where are they now? His remark wasn't the first over the line remark he made. They knew this. The ironic thing is it's the conservative media that has been standing up for him all week.
This entire sad situation is giving us the opportunity to correct the racism that exists today and-- the hypocrisy.
