MSNBC Pulls Imus Simulcast for Two Weeks, CBS Radio Does Same
MSNBC is suspending the simulcast of Don Imus' radio show for two weeks.
NBC News President Steve Capus released this statement late Monday:
"Beginning Monday, April 16, MSNBC will suspend simulcasting the syndicated 'Imus in the Morning' radio program for two weeks. This comes after careful consideration in the days since his racist, abhorrent comments were made. Don Imus has expressed profound regret and embarrassment and has made a commitment to listen to all of those who have raised legitimate expressions of outrage. In addition, his dedication ' in his words - to change the discourse on his program moving forward, has confirmed for us that this action is appropriate. Our future relationship with Imus is contingent on his ability to live up to his word."
What do you think? Is that enough punishment? What should CBS do?
Update: CBS has also suspended him for two weeks.
