MSNBC SIMULCAST OF IMUS RADIO SHOW "SUSPENDED" FOR TWO WEEKS
2nd Update* CBS Suspends Imus For Same Amount Of Time *
NBC News President Steve Capus released this statement late Monday:
“Beginning Monday, April 16, MSNBC will suspend simulcasting the syndicated
‘Imus in the Morning’radio program for two weeks. This comes after careful consideration in the days since his racist, abhorrent comments were made.
Don Imus has expressed profound regret and embarrassment and has made a commitment to listen to all of those who have raised legitimate expressions of outrage.
In addition, his dedication — in his words — to change the discourse on his program moving forward, has confirmed for us that this action is appropriate.
Our future relationship with Imus is contingent on his ability to live up to his word.”

A Whole Lotta Hurt Coming Down On Imus
Damn. The man is in some serious trouble. This is the set up.
Briefly, he said some bad things. (unusual?)
Here is the video of said bad things.
Now he's gonna be taken to the woodshed by Al Sharpton,
and Rev Al don't care.
Imus Set for Sharpton's Radio Show
NEW YORK (AP) - Don Imus will appear on the Rev. Al Sharpton's radio show Monday, five days after Imus made racially charged comments on his own show about the Rutgers women's basketball team, Sharpton and MSNBC announced Sunday.
Despite Imus' scheduled appearance, Sharpton said his position was unchanged: He wants Imus fired and intends to write the Federal Communications Commission about the matter.
I confess to listening to his show. I leave it on in the other room and wait til a good guest comes on. He somehow gets incredible people to go on his stupid show. Wonder how this kerfluffle is playing with all the media his wife has lined up for the release of her new book this Tuesday?
I'm guessing old Don is sleeping out in the barn with the horses for a bit.
