When is a Metrosexual a pussy and when is a fathead a fathead? 

According to 1050 ESPN program director Aaron Spielberg, Imus ripped the ESPN morning show, “Mike and Mike,” in terms ESPN believed crossed a line from legitimate criticism to “off-color” personal attacks.  Turns out ESPN promotes Mike & Mike in terms similar to the Imus commentary.

ESPN Gives New York Broadcasting Legend Ultimatum 
“Imus or Mike & Mike?”

1050 ESPN program director Aaron Spielberg said Friday the decision was made in the wake of on-air remarks by Imus Thursday in which he ripped the ESPN morning show, “Mike and Mike,” in terms ESPN believed crossed a line from legitimate criticism to “off-color” personal attacks.

Wolf was given the choice of staying with 1050 or Imus, and opted for the latter. He has a longstanding relationship with Imus, for whom he famously reported from near the site of the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001.

This is the second time Warner had to choose between Imus and another gig. Last time Warner choose his WCBS TV gig. Imus In The Morning is way better for the sports legend. Doing local sports reports for Mike & Mike was nowhere for Warner. On Imus he has a larger audience and a much larger role commenting beyond sports.

Colonel Jack Jacobs Opines On Obama For Imus

ChanX CliffsNotes

Imus asked Col Jack what he thought of the Obama Iraq trip. According to the Colonel, Obama will not have any information he did not have before the trip.  Nobody does, there is no substance to it at all.  Would be no different if McCain went to Iraq.  “It’s all eye wash” is how the Colonel summarized the trip.

Here We Go Again?  

Not Quite, WABC & Citadel VP Phil Boyce Backs Imus 

 

WABC and Citadel Broadcasting Corp. Vice President Phil Boyce said Imus would be explaining his comments on his Tuesday morning show and it was unlikely the broadcasters would take disciplinary action against him.

Boyce said Imus had explained his words in a private conversation Monday afternoon and the explanation was satisfactory.

“I think some people may be misunderstanding what he meant,” said Boyce

Guys from ESPN do some real reporting, they go to WABC Radio for management reaction. Novel Idea!

Couple of differences between now and April ’07:

  • Talk radio now knows how to defend itself against these type of attacks.
  • Management stepped in immediately and defended Imus.
  • Dick Gregory appears on the show and defends Imus.
  • Imus is not on going on the Sharpton apology tour.
  • Pacman Jones is not an innocent bystander.
  • Then there is that pesky I-Nation thing.

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…)

Mark Simone on his regular WABC Saturday Morning Program announced he will be sitting in for Imus.  The guest host gig  is for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday (June 2 – June 4). 

Note: On his Saturday Morning Program (5/32/08 ) Simone hosted I-Favs; Patrick Buchanan, Jonathon Alter and Frank Rich.

ChanX Prediction: Simone will be a more able fill in then David Gregory ever was.  (That was painful!)

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…)
