To all of you ( of any color ) who hate Imus with a passion, shut up already. What do you want.? Imus's blood.?
You had your revenge, unwarranted as it was, now drop it. Imus did tons of good to all kinds, mostly children, nothwistanding the fact than many of them were black.
Every one who in one way or an other was touched and benefitted from Imus's kindness should stand up and be counted.

'Al Sharpton: The Democrat's David Duke
by Jeff Jacoby (February 26, 2003) Article website address: Sharpton is a vicious liar and a dangerous bigot. As a matter of moral hygiene, prominently reported the results, show a similar interest in digging into Sharpton's record -- After all, Sharpton's résumé is at least as vile as Duke's.
1987: Sharpton spreads the incendiary Tawana Brawley hoax, insisting heatedly that a 15-year-old black girl was abducted, raped, and smeared with feces by a group of white men. He singles out Steve Pagones, a young prosecutor. Pagones is wholly innocent -- the crime never occurred -- but Sharpton taunts him: "If we're lying, sue us, so we can ... prove you did it." Pagones does sue, and eventually wins a $345,000 verdict for defamation. To this day, Sharpton refuses to recant his unspeakable slander or to apologize for his role in the odious affair.
1995: When the United House of Prayer, a large black landlord in Harlem, raises the rent on Freddy's Fashion Mart, Freddy's white Jewish owner is forced to raise the rent on his subtenant, a black-owned music store. A landlord-tenant dispute ensues; Sharpton uses it to incite racial hatred. "We will not stand by," he warns malignantly, "and allow them to move this brother so that some white interloper can expand his business." Sharpton's National Action Network sets up picket lines; customers going into Freddy's are spat on and cursed as "traitors" and "Uncle Toms." Some protesters shout, "Burn down the Jew store!" and simulate striking a match. "We're going to see that this cracker suffers," says Sharpton's colleague Morris Powell. On Dec. 8, one of the protesters bursts into Freddy's, shoots four employees point-blank, then sets the store on fire. Seven employees die in the inferno.
If Sharpton were a white skinhead, he would be a political leper, spurned everywhere but the fringe. But far from being spurned, he is shown much deference. Democrats embrace him. Politicians court him. And journalists report on his comings and goings while politely sidestepping his career as a hatemongering racial hustler.
When Sharpton came to Boston to promote his campaign last week, for example, the news coverage was uniformly upbeat. The Boston Herald noted the "joyous singing and thunderous applause" that greeted the "civil rights leader," whose "energetic visit left many enthusiastic about his presidential bid." The Globe announced the arrival of "the colorful and controversial 48-year-old community activist" with a story listing the places and times of his public appearances. The only allusion to his ugly record was a vague quote from a local minister: "He obviously has a lot of history and controversy to overcome." That was quickly countered by Sharpton's own self-description as a man known "for my fights against racial profiling and discrimination."
Well, that isn't what Steve Pagones or the family of Yankel Rosenbaum or the loved ones of those who were burned alive at Freddy's Fashion Mart know him for. As they can testify, Sharpton is a vicious liar and a dangerous bigot.

who nominated the National Associaton of Black Journalistg to be in charge of anything. I would point out that they are prejusdice of the worst kind. Keep dogging Imus til he dies?
Keep the good stuff hidden?

How much have you donated to cancer or autism?

I wasn't particulary prejdiced befoe this but to sit back and watch the coach and Sharpton get their five minutes of fame was to much to watch.

Really stupid and certainly self serving

The big draw Imus had before being dismissed was the level of his guests. I doubt that many of them will return.

Don Imus, Charles McCord and Bernard Mcguirk are returning. If WABC is foolish enough to listen to the racist organization of the National Association of Broadcasters or the Nuts at the National Organization of Women, then WABC (Citadel Broadcasting) do not deserve the man.

When we can all stand together and welcome the 3rd most influential broadcaster in the history of radio, we will all be better for it.

And if you do not like his brand of humor, satire or parodies. Go to another channel. Pay you monthly fee to listen to Howard Stern.

I am an I-HO meaning a supporter of this man. If you can't stand it. Don't listen to it.

i wrote a lot. should have said Imus has the right to say his stuff. hillary says hers. if she can he can. I dont want our military to be devastated the way it was under billy the hilly boy. at least now the world knows we can take care of our self. if hillary destroys the miltary, like her cowardly husband, expect your children to pay the price,(i am sorry. if you are a liberal your children will never defend the country. they will believe like you that giving up is good.) I am glad the people you think as losers and assholes, the ones who won the first 2 world wars were not like you. Do you think they were as stupid as you are calling them. Ask a vietnam vet if he was scared protecting democracy in a far away country. hillary does not have the guts to do the job. she may believe letting her husband suck another womens tits or stick his whatever in whatever is ok but she could not even handle him, how does she handle this country? if you want to call the men I have talked about in question go ahead. they were smart enough to handle it. she is just stupid. just wondering why anyone would think she could handle this nation.

Is he still running his cancer slave labor camps.

Never liked Imus, he is an old hag. Time to throw in the towel. Howard Stern is a god. His ratings are always higher than Imus'. NBS kicked Howard off but now who has the last laugh. HA HA HA
