Imus Still Going One Year After the ‘Blacklash’

IMUS RETURNS

Jeff Bercovici reporting for Condé Nast on Imus’ Anniversary Show

Talking about the milestone this morning with Karith Foster and Tony Powell — two African-American comedians he brought on to insulate himself from charges of racism — the I-man fell prey to a wee Freudian slip, asking them if they had encountered any “blacklash” after throwing their lots in with him. (He quickly corrected himself.)

Bercovici also reported;

  • The Anniversary Show featured 1/2 hour sponsorships including appearances. (Explains that Audi Guy on-air, Imus seemed to be in love with his voice.)
  • There was an invitation only viewing party for the Imus family of advertisers at the Rainbow Studio.   (Explains the references to Imus’ “corpulent sales staff”.   Is anyone buying genius salesman Bob Gelb as being big boned?)
  • Imus is now on 50 Stations which is more then the 47 he was on with WFAN.  (Thought Imus crossed this threshold long ago.)
  • Morning Time slot is driving greater revenue then Curtis and Kuby had.  (No surprise) Read|More

ChanX CliffsNotes

Imus’ guest selection for the Anniversary Show (all power rotation guests) was superior.  Guests included Alexis Glick who is an Anchor and  Vice President of Business News at I-Sponsor FOX.  Political Pundit Mary Matalin who along with her husband James Carville were Imus stalwarts during the bad days.  Rounding out the guests on the big anniversary show was Comedian and Social Commentator Dick Gregory, who has become an I-Fav over the past year.

Imus read a touching email to the entire cast from Carol Foster congratulating the Imus program on the one year anniversary.  Carol is Karith’s mother and a member of the NABJ .  K-Mom noted how surprised she was by the number of her friends who listen to and commented on the program to her.

Obama Refers To His Grandmother As A Typical White Person.

Question of the day.
If Imus said that substituting black for white, what would happen? 

Imus crew responds; looking for jobs, hasta la vista baby, hack license, selling on the corner, so long Iman. 

Imus: “I don’t understand that, its irritating!”

The Best Five Minutes Of Imus ( June 27, 2008 )

Much more to be irritated about;

Toe doc “Joe Toe” refuses  Iman pain pills following surgery!

They are monitoring us, including the scum at ABC!

Begala’s Communist Party In America!

Market down, world is ending, gloomy baby boomers, oil going up!

I-rant, “read the stories Chuck; READ ‘EM, READ ‘EM!

Ingraham Covers The Gamut

Laura Ingraham appears on Imus. They discuss her radio show, Dennis Miller Highlights, Hilary Campaign, the media, Hilary as a possible VEEP, the race factor in this election and more.  Good interview, Laura provides excellent perspective, is insightful and a fun guest.  Also, a link to “Miller Time!”

Luara Ingraham, Talkers Magazine Woman of the Year

What’s up with the radio gig? Laura Ingraham currently not doing her radio show due to contractual issues, which she cannot discuss due to contract concerns. She did not walk off the show, her health is fine, not family related and can’t wait to get back on the air. Of course Imus loves fighting with radio station people. Loves to make their lives miserable, guys like Steve Borneman and Mitch Dolan to name two. (more…)

CHANX CliffsNotes on Dick Gregory’s Comments

Race in America:
You want a some young women and a whole lot of concubines?  Just go to Texas and join that Mormon Cult.  They’re getting welfare, food stamps for those children.  No one is complaining.  Let that happen in a Black Church and see what happens!

I’m so glad at Obama!  You White folks better be glad I’m not running and you Black folks too.  I wouldn’t hire anything but can’t read, can’t write Negroes. Because you White folks with your cabinets and PHDs done messed up the whole planet.  LET ME TRY SOMETHING DIFFERENT! (more…)

Discussions here and “over there” have gotten me thinking recently. (Could ya smell the wood burning?) Points brought up by one of my favorite posters and echoed by other people I feel very close to are:

Why should I police a site?

What does it matter?

Who does it hurt to just let it go? (more…)

In my latest column at DigitalJournal I decided as a representative of “typical white people” everywhere to call out Senator Barack Obama. It’s time to turn up the heat on this discussion wherever we can, just in time for November….

An Atypical Response to a Typical Media S*** Storm

As any fan of professional wrestling coud tell you, there’s a point in every program where one wrestler grabs a mike and “calls out” another wrestler and pretty much says It’s put up or shut up time.” Well, I’m calling out Senator Obama.

As a typical white person that is.

First of all, as a “typical white guy” I’m giving him a pass on the phrase. (more…)
