Never understood how anyone could watch or listen to Imus. He isn’t funny at all. He knows nothing about anything.
I could never watch more than a few minutes ... maybe twice in my life
He was a shadow under a hat to me.
Agreed - I never got the appeal.
He was O.K. in the very-early 69-70s when I moved to CLE. I actually was able to talk to him (once and ONLY once) during his broadcast, (when we all had a power outage in my neighborhood-IMUS announced it to his listeners.)
Only about 10 million people disagree with you.
Lemme take a stab at that, because I agree that he really isn't that smart or well informed. However, he SOUNDS very smart and very well informed, as he has a commanding voice and impeccable timing. Having said that, he's been past his "sell by" date for years. He was WAY over the hill for his entire FBC career.
I say this because I studied and wrote about the juxtaposition of the outstanding broadcast quality of the MSNBC simulcast show - with the actual intellectual bankruptcy of what was being said. Then, of course, he was pandering to the left to keep his cred with MSNBC. It was really a shameful performance - and yet they did it very well. Thus it was funny when it was the left, the folks he had pandered to for years, who ran him off the air after the Rutgers women's basketball team 'nappy headed ho's' deal.
“He knows nothing about anything.”
To be fair, he knows abortion is wrong, which is more than a lot of people know. He doesn’t bang the drum about it, but I’ve heard him say it. Not a fan, but I appreciated that.
