Imus Suspended From CBS Radio, MSNBC

Imus Suspended From CBS Radio, MSNBC: "Don Imus will be punished for his controversial comments about the Rutgers women's basketball team.

NBC News has decided to suspend him, allowing him to finish the week on MSNBC, but suspending the simulcast of his radio show for the two weeks after that. CBS Radio also said it would suspend Imus for the same period."

I have enjoyed parts of Imus' program on the radio and MSNBC for years. I like many of the political and news media personalities he has on. But too often his shock jock background emerges in a way that just isn't right. This being the latest example. I don't think he should be fired, but I hope he learns something from the strong reaction he's been getting.
