Radio Host: Imus No Disgrace
Here’s what I don’t get.
[Your Nov. 3 story on Don Imus, “Imus Returns, but New Show May Be Tough Sell,”] refers to Imus as “disgraced.” Oh, so? For what, exactly? For saying exactly the same thing that hip-hop music stations run 24/7? Is Clear Channel a disgraced company because they run hip-hop formats?
You refer to the Rev. Al Sharpton, but nary a descriptive word such as “disgraced” [is used]. Remember the Tawana Brawley scandal? That was a REAL disgrace.
Understand that I’m no Imus junkie, and I thought his comment about the girls basketball team was out of line. But in today’s world, where Clinton has sex with Monica, Obama admits to cocaine use, Hillary still can’t explain the Rose Law Firm billing records, Jesse Jackson had an out-of-wedlock child, it’s Imus that’s disgraced?
Cut me some slack.
