Mud, Thy Name is Don Imus

Procter & Gamble, PetMed Express, General Motors Corp., American Express, Staples and Bigelow Tea are just some of the big name advertisers who have pulled their advertising from Imus in the Morning. This is after MSNBC and CBS Radio pulled the plug on Don Imus.

Imu is dealing with a two-week suspension at this time for remarks that I cannot believe were made on the air. This guy needs to take an extended seminar in gender, cultural and racial sensitivity or retire. "It is more than the Rutgers women's basketball team. It is all women's athletes. It is all women," said Stringer, coach for the Rutgers team. I agree.

I would also like to say that all the attention that has been focused on this team as a result of this man's remarks is ridiculous. These athletes do not need to hear the racial epithet repeated on every TV news and radio show. I find this almost as offensive as the original remarks. I guess the vultures have stopped circling Nicole now and are looking for fresh meat.

Geez, they really have nothing to do.

I don't think a two-week suspension is nearly enough. His remarks were extremely offensive and there's absolutely no excuse for them.

@jess and j.e.-Imus was fired. Maybe this will start something to clean up the airwaves.
