IMUS IS GONE. RIGHT THING DONE. Last night, Viacom chairman Sumner Redstone promised that CBS News honcho Les Moonves would "do the right thing" with regard to the future of Don Imus's program on the CBS radio network, but would not say exactly what that right thing is. Today we learned Imus has been fired from his radio show.
I do hope that this does not end the discussion on race and gender that was sparked by Imus's egregious taunt. And I have no intention of letting up on the cable news shows for their lack of women commentators -- especially African-American women -- even when the discussion focuses on the treatment of women.
It will be interesting to see with whom MSNBC fills its guest analyst roster tonight.
