Some perky little news ditz on CNN just asked what effect the Imus firing will have on the '08 elections. Has the so-called news media totally lost it's bearing? Is this what is now passing for "asking the tough questions"?<br><br>Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaagh! <br><br>

It's amazing what "power" some has-been radio host has over people's feelings and the news. Never bothered to listen to the guy. But all this indignation and the calls for his sacking just promoted the insignificant dickhead to a position of perceived power.<br><br>Whatever happened to the off-button?!<br><br>I used to think it was terrible that life was unfair.

I never listened to him either. Nor Stern for that matter. Just not interested in shock jocks in general. But you're wrong a/b "perceived" power. If his influence were merely "perceived", you wouldn't see the country's biggest marketers pulling their advertising from his show. Nor would his words have been heard as loudly and profoundly. If he were indeed as insignificant as you imply, his words would not have enough weight to have caused such a tumult. <br><br>Unfortunately, he wielded much power via the airwaves. And unfortunately, he was not up to the level responsibility that accompanies such clout.<br><br>I also think you're wrong about him being a has-been. What his next incarnation will be is anyone's guess. But this incident will have given him the kind of "sling-shot" momentum a space ship gets from whipping onece around the moon on its way to Mars.<br><br>One thing I believe you're very right about, though: he's a dickhead.<br><br>

The thing is with these people is that you know what they're about if you listen to them. I'm guessing that this particular incident is not unusual for Imus, that's why the audience listens to him - those that don't care for him don't listen. His advertisers know what he's about - at least I assume they do, otherwise they wouldn't advertise with him. From what I'm hearing on both sides of the aisle of the airwaves is that pressure was applied to the advertisers to pull their marketing from his show.<br><br>But every day of the week someone somewhere is saying something that you (or I) find offensive. We give them power by being affronted by that offensive statement. Personally I'm not going to give dickheads that power - I expect them to be dickheads, and the only real reaction to give them is to treat them like the dickheads they are.<br><br>Imus has received way too much publicity for a guy who is quite frankly a complete waste of time. He said something dumb and offensive to some people - he appologised to those people. As far as I'm concerned end of news - don't care if he stays on the air or not (though I guess his fans do). I still believe market forces should drive it - when nobody listens to a show, the advertisers move away, and once the show makes no money it goes off the air. It's a real simple concept - it works in primetime TV, it works on cable, and it works on radio - if nobody is watching/listening you get cancelled.<br><br>Sure there are certain things that need to be actioned - nekkid boobs on the superbowl being one of them. But Howard Stern, Rush Limbaugh, Rosie O'Donnell are where they are because they command an audience - if the audience evaporates they all disappear, and in the meantime they can say what they want - personally I don't care for any of them, so I will not bestow their words or ideas with power.<br><br>I used to think it was terrible that life was unfair. Then I thought what if life were fair and all of the terrible things that happen came because we really deserved them? Now I take comfort in the general unfairness and hostility of the universe.

It's nice that you can overlook these things, and thereby neuter their importance. Just because it may work for you personally doesn't mean it applies ubiquitously. Your tunnel vision is showing. Like it or not accept it or not Imus is an icon, and consequently everything he says and does is iconic. And within a culture that is icon-centric, that matters.<br><br>You keep saying that these people are nothing without an audience. That's quite true, except that they do have huge audiences that aren't going away anytime soon. If you personally pay them not attention, their words and deeds have little or no impact on you. But for those that do listen or at whom such actions are directed the impact is significant. And if nothing else, that should matter to you.<br><br>

I assume that Donovan McNabb paid little attention to whatever Rush Limbo said about him - I didn't notice his game suffer - the only people I heard outraged by Rush's comment was the news media.

What I don't want is something not billed as a part of the entertainment package inflicted on me.

You keep missing the point, Llew. Like you, I don't let these creeps ruin my day. But that doesn't make it ok that someone else's day is ruined.

P&G, for example may have known Imus as a provocative personality with a huge audience. That he tends to make racist and sexist remarks (out of hate or stupidity) may not have been on their radar until now.<br><br>

Re: Now it's getting REALLY silly! - 04/16/07 07:28 AM

I think Imus has been elevated by the national coverage. How many people had never heard of the guy before this incident? If he does get another gig, how many people will now listen to him? Would you deny that Rush Limbo's power is in his audience? Take him off the national airwaves, and he goes where? Same place as Stern maybe.<br><br>The only reason that I believe Imus would be (as you say) embarrassed and remorseful is if his remark was off the cuff and without thought. If he did think about it, then removing him from the airwaves will not change his thoughts, and IMO if someone believes his thoughts then he cannot be truely remorseful or embarrassed by them. Is a paedophile truely remorseful or embarrassed by their actions - or will, given the opportunity, go right back to that same behaviour?<br><br>Imus had power over his audience, in my view, the national media has elevated that power to a larger audience, be that audience supportive or calling for his lynching (either actual or employmentwise).<br><br>One of my grandparents was, in retrospect, a racist - but outside of racist tems, he did not act on those thoughts. He had as little interaction with persons of non-white persuasion as he could, and as far as I know that is where it stopped for him. He didn't act to harm them, or prevent their legal rights - he just had nothing to do with them. Were his actions as bad as Hitler who even before his acts was planning them?<br><br>I used to think it was terrible that life was unfair.

You can accept an apology from someone who just broke your leg by not thinking before throwing a bowling ball down a crowded sidewalk.

No, there has been a dialog exposing it. His remark about the William's sisters that they should be on the cover of National Geographic has been brought up as well as the many other racist comments. Jesse Jackson's "Hymietown" and Sharpton's racist comments have been brought up. This is all good. Painting them as racist comments in no way empowers them except in the minds of racists who love to hear that stuff.

The problem with political correctness is the double standards by which it is applied. Take Memphis for example. 75% black, 25% white. I have been called every name in the book, simply because I am white. The local radio shows go on rants about "Crackers" and "Whitey", yet you don't see anyone running to fire them.<br><br>Another example. Imus is fired for calling these women "nappy haired ho's", yet 3-6 Maffia is given an Oscar for "It's hard out there for a pimp", and then the Mayor of Memphis holds a ceremony and gives them the Key to the City.<br><br>If Imus had burned a flag on national TV, something many of us find truly offensive, the ACLU would have jumped to his defense, but because he offended a different group he was fired.<br><br>I'm sick of the double standard!!

I know where Llew is coming from. Guys like Imus (and no I had never heard of him before) are worth as much attention as you give them, as are Janet's breasts (sorry as is Janet's breast). People got way too worked up over this guy. Everybody is guilty of prejudice of some sort. Why can so much entertainment, King of the Hill and the Simpsons are two examples, make fun of minorities? Because they are tongue-in-cheek? They are making fun of the prejudices themselves? That's a cop out no? But I still laugh when I watch them. Where's the outrage at Ann Coulter for the faggot comment? I certainly found that more offensive, but she still has her job(s). Is that because she never called Edwards a faggot, just implied she couldn't? If Edwards was a known homosexual she might be out on her head!!
