      Ha! I would go for that if he replaced Rush Limbaugh who is much worse.

      I wanted to leave a comment and was well prepared. Then I read the first comment and now I just don't care about anything but illiteracy. If that's one of Imus' fans then we need him back so we can keep track of this group of idiots. At least we would know where they are for three hours a day.

      Tnx for the comment. I]ve added the video that got him in trouble. It was a dumb and hateful comment.

      Have you heard of Spell Check? Imus was fired because the advertisers who sponsored his show decided he would lose more customers for them than he would gain. That's the way the TV business works,

      I miss Imus. I am a new fatyer and had to wake for attention during the night and (living on the west coast) I only had Imus in the early morning. I feel that his politics and guests where totaly objective, and God I miss that. He approached every porspective as not only an American but as a human being. Beleive me I was offended at points but I think in an age of Carlos Mancia and HISBRANDOF HUMOR? That the ignotrant comments should have been forgiven. Honestly I think he needs a better producer. No self respecting producer should have put that on the air, but my solis in that is the producer looking for work now too. I understand Community Standerd, and I agree that the way Raduio should operate . The thing is that Cable is much WORSE with youer Carlos Mancias and Bill O'Reileys(Who dosn't give a fuck about being fair and balenced)than with Imus running at 3:00AM in the morning!
