Imus is dropped from MSNBC

Well, the cave in finally came about in the slobbering form of NBC News President Steve Capus, who stated that Imus in the Morning will no longer be broadcast by MSNBC.

Oh well, I guess I'm going to have to find a way to get it off of WFAN in New York. Anyone know how to get Realplayer to record shows every day?

I would get all incensed and say "Boycott MSNBC", except that MSNBC is going to be hurt a whole lot more than Imus is. Imus in the Morning was one of MSNBC's top ranked shows, and nothing is going to be able to replace the ratings in the morning slot.

I'm sitting here right now listening to Clarence Paige and Armstrong Williams calling today a "good moment for our country" because people are "being honest and following an equal moral standard". Jesus, what a load of crap. Broader discussion of racism?

-The standard-bearer of this whole issue is Al Sharpton, a race hustler who has down nothing but capitalize on this incident for a few more moments in the spotlight.

-Snoop Dogg stated today that what Imus said is much worse than what rappers say.
"We are rappers that have these songs coming from our minds and our souls that are relevant to what we feel."
-Jesse Jackson is on Keith Olbermann now talking about getting rid of any speech that might seem hateful. He is mentioning the Rush Limbaugh's and the Michael Savages of the world. He has not mentioned the rap artists of the world.

I'm still waiting for the serious discussion of race in America. I'm also waiting for the discussion of speech; including the implementation of satire and comedy in media.

So, Realplayer? Daily recording?
