CNN just reported that 61 stations have dropped his show. I don't see what this has actually accomplished.
Stations have been dropping his show for some time before this incident became the front page phoney news it is.
They tried to feed Don Imus to the public in this area on the radio and it didnt go over well. We suffered under it for some two years before it
finally went to the television format for spoonfeeding the public. Don Imus I dont consider a standard of excellence in anything.
However to be level about it neither do I consider Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton a standard of excellence. THey like the media will make merchandize
of everyone and anyone to get in front of the cameras again. I have known this for years and years now about them as I have about Don Imus.
If you take Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson and remove the topic of race and racism away from them ..they have very little to talk about . This is not
the case with Bill Cosby who is educated and can converse on a number of topics not related to race. I admire,salute, and congratulate Bill Cosby more
that a hundred Als or Jesses.
When you can step in front of the camera on mostly race issues ..you are a puppet for someone out there. You dont need to be a genius thinker to see
this. I get quickly tired of being bombarded over and over by these..."usual suspects." THey have been allowed to play through or "default" for to
long. I consider them parasites and shakedown artists on a vulnurable and ignorant system. They have created and taken advantage of a machine in
opreation in shakingdown the publics insecuritys. They have even cultivated this as a career. I have little to no respect for them as is the case
with Don Imus too.
Don Imus is just another shock broadcaster who got caught in his own shock technique.
Don Imus on the other hand if you remove the crassness and crudity out of his program..the shock value..what is there left..like Al and Jesse ..not
much. ARE they puppets to keep the public on a string for some reason...you decide.
I dont reallly care if Don Imus goes by the wayside..nor Al or Jesse. I dont live my life by their every word or statement. I dont wait with baited
breath for the next broadcast of the next drivel they expouse.
I also fault and disrespect the media, politicians, and public education for playing to this too.
