Fox Businesss Don Imus had a delicious trifecta Thursday trashing three perilously liberal journalists in less than 90 seconds.
After telling Jonathan Alter to shove his request to come on the program and hawk his new book, Imus called Howard Fineman a sniveling little weasel and Jon Meacham a phony b*st*rd (video follows with transcript and commentary):
DON IMUS: "Im in a horrible mood because of a couple of reasons. And I dont like it when people tell me what a great friend they are of mine, because I know its nonsense. And heres, you dont need to tell me that youre a good friend of mine. Just be one."
"Anyway, heres an email I got from Jonathan Alter. Remember him from Newsweek? And it begins, Hi Don. Hope you are well. Missed you at the Skip(?) deal. I was out of town. And then this: Im sorry I havent been a better friend and just come crawling up to your *ss when I need something, but I do need something: you putting me on your air to hawk my new book.
"I would like to now write an on-air missive to Mr. Alter. Take your book and shove it up your... You couldnt get on this program with a certified check. You and that sniveling little weasel Howard Fineman or the phony b*st*rd Jon Meacham. Are you kidding me? Thanks, nice to hear from you. Hope youre well. Have a great day you son of a b*tch."
Now THATS entertainment.
He should’ve called Alter a nappy-headed ho.
After reading his comments, I think I need to start listening to Imus again. I was not a fan, but I must say the times they
did the routine with the “Irish Cardinal,” I would have a minute or two of uncontrollable laughter.
Imus did not like Hillary as I recall so another positive mark for Imus in the morning.
It’s not like they can sue him for libel or slander.
This is how Imus talks all the time.
It got old years ago.
Imus got old years ago.
Good Morning & God bless....
I would have loved to hear Don Imus vs Don Rickles (in his prime).
I’ve listened a little bit to Imus over the years, and though he is often politically obtuse, he displays a strange aura of brutally honest integrity. Bob
Wow. He actually made sense for once
Except Imus has made a career out of kissing the posteriors of many phony, puffed-up libs like Frank Rich, Mo Dowd, and others giving them undeserved praise when they should have been scorned. He’ll probably get around to smooching Alter’s behind at some future date.
This is Imus' oldest stichk. This will be chewed over day after day until Alter appears on the program to "hawk" his book by which time he will have had $1 million worth of publicity.
Imus has done this time after time, usually with left-wing personalities such as Jonathan Alter.
Same old Imus. Alter should have contributed to the Ranch first and he would have been fine.
Just wait a few years. Rickles is nearing his prime.
LOL! You are absolutely correct!!
Imus in his crude but accurate way identifies the dirty little secret of the book publishing world these days.
The only people who get published today are those who run the talk shows and their chattering class buddies, because they can push their own books and their buddies’ books on the air to drive up sales.
Do you really think Bill O’Reilly’s or Dick Morris’, or Sean Hannity’s books are that great? No. They just get all that free advertising, so the publishers who are in the business to make a buck not enlighten the masses are going to publish any drivel these people put out.
Imus, the oldest liberal alive. He is the typical New Jersey style liberal idiot thug.
