CBS has fired Don Imus. They originally suspended him for 2 weeks, but they announced today they were over his ass.
Les Moonves said, "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. That consideration has weighed most heavily on our minds as we made our decision."
MSNBC fired his ass yesterday after a grip of advertisers pulled out and public outrage grew.
Sirius is going to buy him now, right? Oldie should probably just call it a day and retire on a ranch or something.
CBS and MSNBC only caved in, because cash was involved.
I think since Don has been fired…Isaiah Washington should be fired from ABC, Paris Hilton's show should be pulled from E!, Rosie O'Donnell should be fired from The View for making fun of Asians….it's a double standard. It was bound to happen though. The old goat needs to call it a day and think twice before he opens those lips. Maybe I should too…I'm scared..hold me…
Our commenting rules are pretty simple: If you make any overly offensive comment (racist, bigoted, etc..) or go way off topic when not in an Open Post, your comments will be deleted and you will be banned. If you see an offensive or spammy comment you think should be deleted, flag it for the mods and they'll be forever grateful and give you their first born (although, you probably don't want that).
