So Much For Progress

November 2nd, 2007at 08:45pm Posted by Eli

Sigh. I had such high hopes.

Has it really only been six months? It seems like just yesterday that we had Don Imus to kick around… and his racist and sexist remarks about the Rutgers University women’s basketball team seem as freshly offensive today as they did when he made them last Easter. Now, to no one’s surprise, the self-styled “I-Man” is back, courtesy of the Citadel Broadcasting Corporation, which has announced that Imus will return to radio December 3 during morning drive time on WABC-AM in New York – the same city where he was unceremoniously banished from the airwaves last spring.

So that’s it, is it? Say something appallingly racist and sexist on the air, and you lose your job FOR SIX MONTHS! That will totally teach Imus a lesson.

It probably is worth noting that MSNBC isn’t putting him back on TV, at least not yet. Also worth noting that it’s Citadel that’s putting him back on the air. They love them some Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity and the whole deranged Melanie Morgan KSFO crew, so I can certainly see where they would find Imus’s schtick appealing.
