There’s a new site up to support Don Imus…
In the removal of Don Imus from CBS Radio and MSNBC, we believe that a series of fundamental principles has been violated, and those that are celebrating a victory by his removal from broadcasting have not yet realized the impact of their actions if we are to have a just society free of racism and double standards.
WE STATE THAT WE SEE AND UNDERSTAND THE OPINION OF THOSE WHO HAVE WORKED TO REMOVE DON IMUS FROM THE AIRWAVES AND OUR LIVES. WE ASK THAT YOU READ ON AND FAIRLY CONSIDER OUR VIEWPOINT AS WELL, AS A JUST & REASONABLE COMPROMISE IS POSSIBLE.
Accepting and acknowledging the full extent of the offense caused by Don Imus’ recent comments, we, the undersigned, still believe the remedy put in place is excessive, unfair and wrong.
Further, the only way to rectify this mistake and avoid creating a First Amendment-crushing precedent is to reinstate Don Imus and his staff and return the ‘Imus in the Morning’ program to the air as soon as possible, perhaps following additional suspension and other remuneration.
