McCain Endorsement Cannot Save Don Imus

Filed under: Entertainment,John McCain,Media — Psycheout @ 3:21 pm

It’s official. CBS has cancelled Don Imus after his politically incorrect slur, calling the Rutgers women’s basketball team “nappy headed hos.” According to CNN:

CBS cancels Don Imus’ radio show, effective immediately, after uproar over his racist and sexist comments about Rutgers women’s basketball team.

This comes shortly after “straight talker” John McCain gave him a ringing endorsement. It really shows how influential he isn’t.

Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain said Monday he stands by radio host Don Imus, who has been suspended for making what his employers called racist comments on the air.

Stand by your man, John.

McCain, whose presidential candidacy has been backed by Imus, said he would still appear on Imus’ program.

Not anymore. Maybe Imus will get a shortwave gig or jump to satellite radio like shock-jock Howard Stern.

When you have liberal hosts like Randi Rhodes calling for the President to be killed and Keith Olberman sliming the Bush Administration at every turn and Rosie O’Donnell with her “Ching Chong” and 911 inside job remarks, one can only hope they will be next.

Hat Tip: Hot Air.

Update: According to ABC: “McCain and Giuliani have both said they would continue to appear on Imus’ show, if asked.” Romney has also appeared on the Imus show.

Update 2: Balloon Juice’s John Cole seems to get it. Caution: some foul language.

Update 3: Michelle Malkin was called a whore while filling in for Bill O’Reilly. Where’s the Outrage Now? See also Michelle’s reaction.

Update 4: Race 4 2008’s Republius weighs in with Conservative Support And Sympathy For Imus Is Disgusting – There Is No Constitutional Right To Your Own Talk Show.

  1. Any guy who can use that kind of language and not see anything wrong with it should not be backed up by candidates for POTUS. Now Imus is whining about his “free speech” despite the obvious that the radio station is not government run and therefore not constrained in who it gets rid of due to their speech.

  2. I agree Noonan, but I am more than a little worried about Al Sharpton’s involvement in this. He’s a race pimp who should be ignored, not given credit in the press. He makes me sick.

    But yes, this has absolutely nothing to do with “free speech.” Well said.

  3. As far as I know, Imus is a jerk. I was never a fan. But this seems like political correctness gone too far.

  4. They’ll go after Rush next. Mark my words. But they’ll never get him.

  6. Good riddance to bad rubbish. Imus endorsed McCain and previously voted for Kerry and Nader. He’s attacked Bush every chance he had. I’m glad the nappy headed cowboy has finally been put out to pasture.

    Rosie O’Donnell needs to be shown the door too. I just wonder if she can fit through it.
