Imus is returning to the airwaves after a seven month hiatus. I am one who thought he never should have been fired in the first place. Sure he may have offended the Rutger’s basketball team a little bit, but that’s what people like him and Howard Stern are paid to do, ruffle feathers and say the things others might think, but are too socially conscious to verbalize. He’s a shock jock after all. I like knowing where Imus and his type stand because I don’t care much for surprises. I was angrier that he apologized because he didn’t really mean it. He just uttered an empty and obligatory “I’m sorry” to save his job, I do not believe the apology was heartfelt in the least.
I must say I was never a fan of Imus’s in fact I never heard his show. I had seen him on television a couple of times and hurriedly changed the channel because I don’t suffer fools gladly. Can we expect a kinder and gentler Imus and do we really want him to be politically correct? Should he be returning at all? I would like to hear your thoughts.
