    Washington -- This past Sunday brought the news to the front pages of our leading newspapers of the passing of shock jock Don Imus. Comparatively speaking, it was happy news. At least, it was happy news compared with the news that otherwise adorns the front pages of The Washington Post and The New York Times and is then repeated and repeated in the newspapers' interior pages. Most of the stories these dolorous journalists cover are stories of squalor, grief, travail and out-and-out evil. Do you doubt me? See how many cheerful stories you can find either on the front pages...

    Welcome to the weekend, the last weekend of 2019 moving into 2020 in just a few days. The Queen's honors list in the UK with a massive list of names and oops, a thousand addresses mistakenly published.

Olivia Newton-John will be made a dame (she received an Order of the British Empire in 1979) for "services to charity, cancer research and entertainment".....

    Radio shock jock Don Imus, one of the early pioneers of his genre, died Friday less than two years after retiring, according to a family statement given to NBC New York. He was 79. The controversial morning personality’s last day on the radio was on March 29 of last year. He had announced on Jan. 22 that he was retiring, telling fans: “Turn out the lights...the party's over."

    We’re not excusing what Roy Moore is accused of—it’s ghastly. The man is accused of being inappropriate with multiple women; with another, a Trump voter, claiming he sexually assaulted her when she was 16 years old. The Republican Party had abandoned Moore; the optics of this is just too terrible to maintain support. It gets worse; Guy wrote today about how this man was banned from a Gadsden mall because he was trolling for high school dates and badgering teenage girls in the process. All of the accusers were teenagers at the time. Yet, one thing the Media Research Center...

  • Imus Trashes ‘No-Talent Loser’ Dana Perino: ‘She Sucks and Her Book Sucks’

    Whoa, Don Imus really does not like Dana Perino. Last week, the Imus in the Morning FBN host went on a blistering tirade against his Fox colleague, one day after interviewing her about her new book, And the Good News Is…: Lessons and Advice from the Bright Side. The reason for his verbal lashing? Imus felt Perino walked into his studio with an attitude, and would only share “rehearsed talking points” about her book. (SNIP) First of all, she was the press secretary, that was a mercy move. They had 37 press secretaries and they found her, I mean, I...

    Fox Business Network’s Don Imus on Tuesday tore into CNN’s handling of the Boston Marathon bombings, calling the network’s coverage “absurd and frustrating.” “Remember, there was a time whenever something would happen, we would all turn to CNN,” the “Imus in the Morning” host said. “But that was a long time ago. That was a long time ago.”

    Your Super Tuesday War on Women update finds the battlefield shifting to an area that doesn’t involve any actual women. Wading into the fray this time is a well known, sober, principled, even toned observer of the human condition… Don Imus. The aging shock jock decided to add his two cents to the current kerfuffle embroiling Rush Limbaugh, doing so in his usual, measured, analytical style. During Monday’s news updates on Fox Business Network’s Imus In The Morning, host Don Imus went off on Rush Limbaugh‘s weekend apology to Sandra Fluke, calling Limbaugh a “fat, gutless, pill-popping loser.”Imus expressed anger...
  • Don Imus lambasts Limbaugh over Fluke flak

    03/05/2012 10:03:16 AM PST · by raccoonradio · 34 replies ^ | 3/5/12 |
    Sometimes it takes one to know one. Fox Business Network’s Imus In The Morning host Don Imus—who knows a thing or two about public apologies—didn’t find Rush Limbaugh’s weekend mea culpa to Sandra Fluke particularly convincing. Imus’ take: “A lame apology on his website, in which he says he didn’t mean to personally attack her, is gutless.” Imus took issue with Limbaugh’s “sustained, vile, personal attack” on Fluke over three days, and said that if he’s going to apologize, you have to “go sit down with her.” And there’s (much) more. Imus, who doesn't spare himself when using sometimes over-the-top-language,...

    On Friday, Keith Olbermann dropped a bomb on the media world when he announced that his nearly eight-year stint at MSNBC was coming to an abrupt end. Although the complete details haven’t been revealed, some have suggested Olbermann was pushed out by management at NBC Universal. However, due to Olbermann’s surprise departure, media watchers were waiting to see how his MSNBC colleagues would react to the news, particularly “The Rachel Maddow Show” host Rachel Maddow, who has said she owed her spot on the network to Olbermann. Initially Maddow pled ignorance immediately following the announcement on HBO’s Friday broadcast of...

    As NewsBusters previously reported, Chris Matthews on Tuesday blamed conservative talk radio hosts Mark Levin and Michael Savage for creating the climate of hate that led to Saturday's shootings in Tucson, Arizona. On Wednesday, FBN's Don Imus and his sidekick Bernard McGuirk went after the "angry," "vile," "psycho," "spittle-spewing" MSNBCer (video follows with transcript and commentary): As NewsBusters previously reported, Chris Matthews on Tuesday blamed conservative talk radio hosts Mark Levin and Michael Savage

    Here is video of Sen. Orrin Hatch talking to Don Imus, where Hatch said “many people believe the President (Obama) is responsible for the destruction of our country.” The out-of-control spending Obama has engaged in since becoming President has pushed the nation to the brink. Hatch cited the fact that “18% of all wages” in America are now paid out by the Federal Government. The Utah Senator pointed out that Obama “is creating jobs – but they’re all Government jobs.”

    ITHACA, NY-Two months after an Africana professor allegedly called two black graduate students “black bitches,” members and allies of the Africana community — undergraduate and graduate students, faculty and alumni alike — have begun to speak out more fervently about the issue. Earlier this year, Prof. Grant Farred, English and Africana studies, invited two of his advisees — both female graduate students who wish to remain anonymous — to attend a Feb. 5 and 6 conference at the University of Rochester entitled “Theorizing Black Studies: Thinking Black Intellectuals.” The two students arrived late to a conference panel, after which Farred...

    Is the luster finally wearing off the love affair between the White House press corps and President Barack Obama? It is, if CBS White House correspondent Chip Reid's analysis of President Barack Obama's latest Wall Street proposals is anything to go by. Reid appeared on the Fox Business Network's Jan. 25 "Imus in the Morning" program and offered an update on the president's financial and economic advisers, mainly Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and Director of the National Economic Council Lawrence Summers. He said both Geithner and Summers should survive, despite a run-in with former Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker, who...

    Since Republican Scott Brown won the special election Jan 19 to fill Massachusetts' U.S. Senate seat vacated after the death of Ted Kennedy, President Barack Obama and high-level White House staffers David Axelrod and Robert Gibbs have been on the media circuit in damage control mode. But according to "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace, efforts to spin this in a positive way are futile. Wallace appeared on the Fox Business Network's Jan. 21 "Imus in the Morning" program to explain their efforts to alter the news coverage to a favorable tone in the wake of this news is not...

    Ever since long-time radio talker Don Imus inked a deal with the Fox Business Network to simulcast his morning radio program, he said he has been getting pushback from several acquaintances. And as he explained and showed on his Oct. 28 program, he's not particularly pleased with the reaction about his deal with Fox News. "I get this email and the e-mail says, ‘Sorry to see you've sold out to Fox Business, or whatever. But I am not surprised you sold out to Fox Business, disappointed.' Could you explain to me exactly what does that mean? When you walk in...

    Limbaugh is going to change the name of the team from the Rams to the Nappy-Headed Hos..Rush Limbaugh might one day own the St. Louis Rams. Hell, sometimes these column thingies write themselves. The only thing that could make this news even more fantastic is if in his first two acts as owner Limbaugh traded for Donovan McNabb and made Jesse Jackson the head coach. Followed by Ann Coulter's hiring as general manager. My head exploded after hearing this Limbaugh news. How exactly will Limbaugh address the team after he purchases them? "I just want to introduce myself and say...
