Adios Imus in the Mourning Part II

…but the fact challenged Rush Limbaugh, the sick Stern, and the ranting, screaming O’Reily go on. All of them should be held accountable for what they say, and their unprofessional behavior. O'Reilly paid to silence his sexual harassment groping women on the job case. Only a rich guilty man pays somebody for wrongly accusing them. A poor guy might not be able to afford the fight. But somebody like O'Reily who has tons of money settled right away. That indicates to me he's guilty as sin. This is a guy who screams at the top of his lungs to make a point, but when confronted with a real fight tucked his tail in and paid. It means he did it folks and he's still working. And, as long as we are on a roll how about keeping our politicians accountable for what they say and do, or are we still looking for WMD’s?

Why is lying tolerated and not met with equal outrage – when millions of people are dying (dead) around the world. Imus is gone but nothing has changed until the lying and the deceit in both business and politics is snuffed out with as much outrage and ink and air as confronted Imus. Or is it a case of don’t bite the hand that feeds you – hmm a lack of courage perhaps by our news agencies and their employees? I don’t know you tell me I’m outraged. Cheney shoots a guy in the face and it’s not reported on until 14 hours later – (time for the alcohol to dissipate from his DUI system) and it’s swept under the rug, and never, ever mentioned again. If Clinton had done that he would have hung from the town square. Yippee we put Don Imus out of work and they continue to die in Darfur, Iraq, and at home right in the heart of our cities. Putting Don Imus out of work was like scoring a goal with the goalie pulled while standing in front of an empty net, unchallenged. Let’s all pat ourselves on the back we sure showed em.
