I think he needs to let his balls drop and stop playing into the game of al sharpton, he apologized already.

Imus is a moron. I tried listening to him and lasted about 10 minutes. What people find funny with him is beyond me. He's a miserable old man

I think he deserved to be suspended and/or fired, but I am tired of hearing about it. He will get punished so why are people still talking about it and giving this guy more attention than he deserves? And yes it was blown out of proportion to an extent (not that I condone what was said.)

I think this was seriously blown out of proportion.

Imus has apologized. Now he should be ignored. I think the amount of attention the media has given Imus over his comments has only escalated racial tension.

I think he should have been man enough to stick to his guns, rather than putting up with a dirtbag like Al Sharpton. Welcome to America, where you can say anything you want. If people don't like it, they don't have to listen to his show. If the station owners lose money because of it, they can fire him. I just don't like seeing grown men going around begging and apologizing in such situations.

I just flipped past MSNBC and he got fired, so hopefully we don't have to hear about this douche anymore.

He has made these kinda of coments for years. He has just made the mistake of picking on the wrong group. Bill Maher is much more ignorant in his rants, but he is still on. Don't get me wrong, Bill should stay on, if that is what his employers want, but he is not getting flamed.

While I don't like the grandstanding that goes on , even after the apology, I don't like
Imus. He's always seemed like an elitist to me. I listened to his show for about a month straight when I used to work construction a long time ago. My boss would always bring his radio and listen to him, and I didn't think he was even a tenth as clever as he thought himself to be. I was glad when I quit that job.

hes lost all his big sponsors and msnbc took his show off of the air, as far as radio goes he might stick around, but smacker hit it on the head with the elitist comment. the guy is just a complete douche who gets off at the sound of his own voice and laughs harder than anyone at his own jokes. im glad he wont be there when im flipping through channels in the morning in a hungover haze....the man has a face for radio that is tough to look at when your tongue feels hairy and your head is pounding

My only problem with the issue is this (just a good example, there are many others):

If Imus loses his job over a small (albeit stupid) remark like that, shouldn't they throw Howard Stern in a pit and let every woman with even a hint of self-respect pelt him to death with big effin' rocks?But no, he has a 15 MILLION dollar contract....somethin about that smells awful bad to me...

Carlos Mencia, Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle (three more examples)

Racism is great material for stand up comedians. Its funny how ignorant and stereotypical we can act sometimes.

I see the serious issues of reverse discrimination, and racism in general fading generation by generation. The most racist Americans I've met have been 40+. Given they grew up in the civil rights era, its understandable imo. You can't teach an old dog new tricks.
