I haven’t said anything about the whole Don Imus flack. I thought it was absurd that a grown man, nationally known, says something so juvenile and ugly. However, I knew the whole incident was going to be beat with a stick on an hourly basis. I was right.
I listened to him a few times, tried to watch him on the idjit box way back when. I couldn’t take it. I found him droning….kind of like a gnat. The few times I listened/watched, nothing said kept my attention. So, I quit trying. I guess there must be quite a few people who find him interesting, he has some well known guests on from time to time. I just don’t understand why.
The hypocrisy of the whole thing is still amazing me. Jesse Jackson? Al Sharpton? When did they become the speech police? I find many things Jackson says offensive. Why hasn’t he been ‘fired’? Where are his apologies? Where is Sharpton’s for the riot he started in New York? Imus at least has apologized publicly and is going to be talking to the young ladies he offended.
And come to think of it, when is Rosie O’Donnell going to apologize for being a raving lunatic on national television? Where is the outrage about her comments offending every Christian? Why haven’t people been calling for her being fired like they are Imus?
Can we say HYPOCRITE?
We have freedom of speech guaranteed in the 1st Amendment. There are a few limits, like not being able to get away with shouting fire in a crowded theater. Rosie is shouting fire, yet not much outrage, except on the right.
Michael McGee, Sr. is known for offensive language on his radio show, yet locally, no outcry for firing him. Why is that?
What Imus said was offensive to me. Should he be fired? Truthfully, I don’t think so. Does he deserve his suspension? Absolutely.
