Thanks to Don Imus, that wonderful broadcaster (note the sarcasm) for bringing those who wish to censor the world more ammunition in their fight. While I agree that his comments are stupid, offensive, show poor judgement, etc. it doesn’t mean that the FCC should step in and control what people say over the air.
By all means, protest and boycott until MSNBC decides to fire the dinosaur but don’t ask the government to control what he, or any other broadcaster, says or does not say.
I wonder why we’ve entered an age where many in the world feel that ideas they don’t like should be removed from the public discourse. What happened to the idea of going after what he had to say and showing why and how it’s incorrect? The government has NO place in this issue. A special thanks goes out to the news media for encouraging this type of thinking with their yellow journalism!
