One day after being dropped by MSNBC, the I-man is given his walking papers by CBS radio. The thing that really blows my mind about the coverage of this story is none of the articles ever explain why Imus was commenting on the Rutger’s Women’s Basketball team in the first place. I assumed it was because they won Women’s NCAA championship, turns out they were actually runners up. Now you know. [Reuters/NYTimes.com]
And by the way, do people even still listen to Imus? Getting fired was probably the most relevant (albeit repugnant) thing he’s done in decades.
