Well, I'm surprised. CBS has dumped Don Imus, the obnoxious host of Imus in the Morning.
(CBS/AP) CBS announced Thursday that it has fired Don Imus from his radio program, following a week of uproar over the radio host's derogatory comments about the Rutgers women's basketball team.
"There has been much discussion of the effect language like this has on our young people, particularly young women of color trying to make their way in this society," CBS President and Chief Executive Officer Leslie Moonves said in announcing the decision.
Imus has also been so very fond of calling Dick Cheney a war criminal as he carried on about the incompetence of the Bush Administration and how badly things are going in Iraq. That language has also had an effect on our young people and I'm mildly surprised CBS would choose to silence it. I have no doubt he will surface in another venue, and what he has to say then might be pretty interesting. I'm thinking of what, if anything, he might have to say about Tim Russert, David Gregory, and Andrea Mitchell.
