I have never been a huge fan of Imus, finding him underwhelming with his reasoning.
But boy, did he fall fast. Now once I understood what the word "hos" means (showing my age and ignorance of popular culture there!) I did have to agree that what he said was really bad.
But was an apology not acceptable? Imus did way more than apologize: he grovelled. He grovelled to everyone, even to Al Sharpton. And everyone was after him, especially some of the Presidential candidates. Is the real story here that they all were not looking forward to having to appear on Imus' show several times?
