A couple of days ago, I put a blog here about the Imus saga! I encourage you to go to that blog and add an entry here so it is fresh! The subject matter has zoomed in on economics by the networks to fire Imus! There is talk even about rights! Even about Immigration! This is a heated topic because it in fact does affect each of us! Our first amenment rights whether designed in 1776 or present is a HUGE amendment that protects us from the government's attempts to ever try and prevent us from speaking our mind and that means IN PUBLIC! Weapons, To congregate peacefully to demonstrate etc. As far as the networks! They are spineless amobeas! They kiss the ass of corporate america instead of standing by their own! 50 years ago, the networks welcomed controversy because that created a huge listening audience! Today the U.S. is becoming sterile due to the extremities of being "Politically Correct"! What the hell IS poilitically correct? I am sick of pacifying people because it upsets them! Tough! I get upset when someone cuts me off while driving. I don't shoot him and often I ignore him! Is the latter politically correct? I am surprised women are not actually responding to this!

Sorry to be a dissenter, but CBS and NBC have a fiscal responsibility to their shareholders, and if their corporate sponsors are threatening to pull revenue from then, they have to do as dictated. Supply and demand, it's an economic thing. If their sponsors cancel, they can't broadcast. Simple math.

The reason Imus was canned is purely economic, and secondarily because of the Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton factor, Blacks, for lack of a better term, are a small percentage of the population of this country and their enfluence is so great. Lets not offend the Brothers and Sisters. This shit has got to stop.

I understand the economices of the situation however, they are spinless Jellyfish for not standing by Imus and in the end I think they would have reaped the benefits! That is exactly my point about what America has become! Integrity is lost to the almighty dollar! Just like we are being sold out by oil! $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$Were being Sold Out! Tell me I'm full of crap in 10 years! That will be about when the backlash of this administration will show! Not the Demo's

Basically Whites make up 77% Hispanics 14% Blacks 12% Asian 4.3% What you say is very true! There is a double standard and there is no reason for it! Gangsta Rap singer Fify Cen in an interview about this was asked "why is it that black people can say the "N" word to each other, call their women "Ho's" and "Bitches" and call whites Cracker, honky eyc. Bit if a white person says the "N" word it's big crap! His replay is "Different Cultures. When I say the "N" word it is like saying "Dude!", when a white person says it, it usually means something negative." It's not negative though to call me a cracker or honky? Double standard! I am by no means prejudice and in fact nothing I ever said IS prejudice! It's all fact!
