    And dont misunderstand. I accept Dave C and Pryor as genuine funny guys.
    They did more for the advancement of understanding one another than Sharpton will do in is entire lifetime.

    Some interesting information here. There is now a campaign underway, fueled by Democrats who contribute to a "tax-exempt group" called Media Matters, to force conservative talk show hosts from radio. Hillary Clinton also has strong ties to this group. It's run by the notorious David Brock. Having failed miserably with Air America, another Democrat-established effort, it appears we have a rather sleazy effort afoot to silence the one broadcast venue the Left can't control.

    Imus's language is abhorrent. Yet, until this week, he was paid millions by NBC/MSNBC and CBS. The spectacle of Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson demanding Imus's head, when they've said and done far worse, is hard to stomach. Their racism and anti-Semitism is well-documented. The same broadcast companies that had employed Imus now give a microphone to them.

    But Sharpton and Jackson have now highlighted something they never intended to address, i.e., the vile and disgusting content of much hip-hop and rap music. Conservative talk show hosts don't play this stuff on the air. It's the bread-and-butter of Urban radio stations. Hollywood celebrates it ("It's Hard Out Here for a Pimp" won the 2006 Academy Award for Best Original Songólyrics here) Sharpton and Jackson have never picketed an Urban radio station; they've never called for boycotts of the record labels that produce this filth; they've never asked the FCC to investigate the playing of these recordings on the public airwaves; and they've never demanded the firing of any DJs or executives who promote it. Yet, this junk is demeaning like nothing else and perpetuates all the worst stereotypes.

    The real story is the failure of these self-appointed guardians of morality to speak the truth. But, then again, to do so would take guts and integrity.

    Heh. the unabashed irreverance of Gen. Patton, it still works today........ stuff like that - 's'what made IMUS's show great. Don once said, "I'm just the traffic cop in all this".......but you just knew his fingerprints were all over everything!

    oh, the subtlety of it all...

    Fired by the very company that disseminates, on other networks, the very same word(s) he was fired for. Viacom owns VH1 and MTV, I won't dare say the words they say on there lest I get fired , but I'm sure you can figure it out. I'd be willing to bet Condi isn't a Ludacris fan:

    You doin ** activities
    With ** tendencies
    **s are your friends, **es are your enemies
    With ** energy to do whacha do

    I'm pleased he was fired as well. I hope Rosie is fired next. The public discourse in this country has really taken a turn for the worse.
