not more then I do........however, he had a clause in his contract that gave him protection in the exact case of him saying something "un-pc"....his employers violated it and fired him on the spot.

He deserves the money.

Jimmy and Howard didn't exactly keep it to themselves. Otherwise we wouldn't know about them.

Yeah, he was supposed to be edgy, It was in his contract. It was known from the get go he'd clean up. And he did. This also opens the possibility that he will be back on radio soon. Settling of the contract means his no compete is shortened or void.

He sucks but what he said was free speech.

It was stupid, but he's a doddering old "shock jock" so we should expect this from him.

Not wrongly fired for following his contract.

The First is protection from the government and does not apply here.


What applies is the part of his contract stating he was supposed to be controversial, and was then fired for it.

FWIW, the 1st really doesn't apply to radio being protected by the .gov anyway. It's called the FCC

Not an Imus fan, but what he said was made 'main stream lingo' by the very people who cried foul when he said it.

I'm glad he's getting the money in the end, but everyone involved was wrong on some level. Some more wrong than others.

The hypocritical race-baiting schmucks Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton can kiss my voluptuous ghetto-booty-licious badonkadonk.

eta: The only people I feel bad for in the whole thing is the actual ladies on the bball team. They didn't ask to be mocked, they didn't ask to be in the public eye, and it wasn't fair of Imus to go after them like that. Yeah, he had the right to do it, but he shouldn't have. JMO.

Amazing how a WORD can make the world react. Im not a fan of the guy but this shit about so called racism needs to end. This is America. Freedom of speech is part of that. I say it once in awhile to the ones the ACT like one. I like black people just not there brothers that think they can be a thug and treat others like shit. Call me cracker I dont care, my mommy said sticks and stone might break my bones but WORDS will never hurt me. PEACE OUT.

People give words power because they lack the ability of thought.

nothing to do with 1st amendment rights....... CBS is a company that takes advertising money from many different folks and they own many different companies. When yer in the public eye you can't say those things. Is it right?? Prolly not, but I believe he should have been fired.........but now that i hear about his contract stating he was allowed to say poli-incorrect things.........well then he should get his money.......

Link Posted: 8/14/2007 8:04:33 AM EDT
I used to listen to his show in the mornings when I lived in Johnson City (not much talk radio to choose from out there) and I thought the show was decent. I'm glad CBS is going to write a big check since they are such spineless pussies.

You can say whatever you want about what he said and interpet it literally all day long. But when someone says "knappy headed 'ho" they think of a black women. Say whatever you want bro......beat yer head against that wall......but it's the truth.

How do you know what someone else thinks? I'll answer for you: You don't. You're just assuming because that's how you perceive things.
