Imus Be Going Now...

I’m no fan of Don Imus. Actually, I didn’t even know he was still on the air. CBS fired him because they thought he needed to go. Fine. It’s done.

His termination comes after the execs from the Giant Eye met with Revs. Sharpton and Jackson. In the coming weeks it will be interesting to watch those two as the apparent moral police of the country. Will they hold the hip hop culture to the same standard? Will they encourage boycotts of advertisers on MTV and BET?

I think what we’ll see from them will be like a man using Saran Wrap. Sure he thinks he’s making progress, but after an hour he’s just tangled in a big mess.
