MSNBC Tells Imus “Buh Bye”

MSNBC cut loose the wing-nut talk show Don Imus.

From MSNBC:

MSNBC said Wednesday it will drop its simulcast of the “Imus in the Morning” radio program, responding to growing outrage about the radio host’s racial slur against the Rutgers women’s basketball team.

“This decision comes as a result of an ongoing review process, which initially included the announcement of a suspension. It also takes into account many conversations with our own employees,” NBC news said in a statement.

Talk-show host Don Imus triggered the uproar on his April 4 show, when he referred to the mostly black Rutgers women’s basketball team as “nappy-headed hos.” His comments have been widely denounced by civil rights and women’s groups.

Imus is now on a “I love Black People” tour trying to save his most lucrative gig as a radio host on CBS Radio. CBS has suspended Imus for two weeks without pay which is roughly the taking away a kid’s ice cream cone, but still allowing him to keep the slice of cake and package of cookies. There is money to be made in Imus’ bigotry and CBS can’t seem to quit him.

Check out the clip from yourself and see if Imus deserves to keep his multi-million dollar paycheck.
