I seriously don’t want to talk about the Don Imus situation. In my opinion, giving him air time and print time is exactly what he wanted. He’s a shock jock. His job is to make waves, obviously at all costs. I really don’t want to participate in this game of ratings Red Bull. But I can’t help but drop a line about MSNBC’s “punishment.”
For saying what he said on a nationally syndicated show?
For humiliating innocent women for absolutely no reason?
For steering the country’s attention from important matters — such as the second Vietnam and the preface to one of the most important presidential elections ever?
Let me get this straight. You spew insensitive remarks about helpless kids, women, and for that you get vacation time? Somewhere, Michael Richards is having a cow. He’s being blackballed from the business for his racist remarks. Imus goes racist and chauvinistic in one sitting and he gets a trip to Cancun.
