IT’S NOT IMUS’ FAULT – THE NETWORKS COULD’VE PREVENTED IT!

HERE COMES THE LAWSUIT!

A lawyer for Don Imus said Friday that the former radio host’s bosses could have edited the on-air comments that got him fired — and that the fact that they didn’t meant they saw his remarks as routine for his often-provocative show. Attorney Martin Garbus told ABC-TV’s “Good Morning America” that CBS Radio and MSNBC had delay buttons but didn’t use them when
Imus made racist and sexist comments about the Rutgers women’s basketball team last month.
“That means CBS and MSNBC both knew the language that was going
out, and both knew the language complied with (Imus’) contract. …
It was consistent with many of the things he had done,” Garbus
said.
CBS Radio owns Imus’ former home radio station, WFAN-AM, and
MSNBC simulcast the program on cable television.
An MSNBC spokeswoman contradicted Garbus’ claim, saying that the
broadcast aired without a delay and that there was no opportunity
to delete his comments. Allison Gollust said MSNBC would not
respond to any of Garbus’ other remarks.
A CBS Radio spokeswoman, Karen Mateo, said Friday she would not
respond to Garbus’ comments.
