Anyone see last night's Hannity and Colmes? (Haha, we're just kidding, of course you did!)
Anyhow, since we know you never miss an episode, we're (almost) certain you all were glued to your tv screens yesterday, when Bernard McGuirk, Don Imus' former—and recently ousted—producer, stopped in to maturely discuss his so-called "wrongful termination." And by that, of course, we mean "bitch out everyone he could think of over the totally unfair, overhyped debacle that culminated in his (unjust!) termination."
Among the highlights: McGuirk's reaction to Imus' controversial remark (McGuirk reveals he "didn't get the memo" that the phrase 'nappy-headed hos' had reached the level of the n-word in offensiveness") and his views on the 'PC police' ("it's a horrible thing for this country where people can't poke fun at each other...without fear of being hammered by the PC police or lose your livelihood over it.")
Um, not that he's speaking from personal experience or anything. (Awkward!) But our fave part had to be this line, where McGuirk bitches out his equally crazy nemesis, Al Sharpton.
"It seemed like [Sharpton] terrorized broadcast executives," he said. "It seemed like they were in a fetal position under their desks sucking their thumbs on their Blackberries, trying to coordinate their response."
That's actually almost true, McGuirk. See, Sharpton and his PC police cronies were curled up in fetal position under their desks, and sucking their thumbs on their Blackberries. But it actually had less to do with your firing than it did with a horrific tragedy, to henceforth be known as The Day The Blackberry Died.
If Sharpton is a Reverend he should be familiar with " Let he who is without sin cast the first stone"
Good Mornin' and God Bless!
The Buck did not stop on Imus' desk. He has been making his "bosses" millions, so that they could live in their fancy penthouses. THEY allowed Imus to pretty much say what he wants on the air, as long as the money kept rolling in. Imus did step over the line, and apologized sincerely. His being fired was not necessary. MSNBC only caved in to a couple of Religious wannabes, who, by the way, are not without sin! Imus in the Morning will be a loss.... the present morning show is dull and without substance. Thanks for nothing MSNBC.
Why should Don Imus be held to a higher standard than the African Americans hold them selves. We need to stop using these words to describe ourselves. My day starts out less enlightened.
Sure Imus crossed the line, but really now, didn't his show cross the line most every day? No one ever complained. Even though I deplore trashy words, I looked past that to the humor Imus provided me in the morning. Every day we wake up to our own problems as well as the world's. It's so depressing. Yet this man who seems to overuse his mouth, fights for the kids who need help at his ranch and by telethons. To be honest, I watch NO TV anymore as far as the news goes. There was only one Imus. He allowed me to laugh every morning instead of dreading my day. I hope he is ok. He certainly made me enjoy getting up every morning.
