ANNOUNCER CHOOSES DON IMUS OVER ESPN

July 27, 2008

WARNER WOLF

Veteran radio announcer Warner Wolf has been dropped from doing weekday updates by ESPN 1050 in New York. Wolf had been doing sports updates for both ESPN and Don Imus on WABC.

In his blog “Watchdog,” Newsday’s Neil Best says Wolf was given a choice by ESPN 1050 management. Pick one job. ESPN made their decision after Imus made critical “personal” comments about ESPN Radio national hosts “Mike and Mike.” Wolf chose to remain loyal to his primary meal ticket – Imus.

It’s hard to believe Wolf is still working. He’s 71-years-old and has been doing local television in New York (WABC and WCBS) and Washington D.C. since the early ’60s. Unfortunately he was NEVER any good. He is so old that his catchphrase is “Let’s go to the videotape.” That’s right, they didn’t HAVE videotape when Warner Wolf started his tv career.

Wolf’s career peeked in the mid ’70s when he was named to the Monday Night Baseball crew. He was bad at that too.

IMUS DEFENDS HIMSELF

In trouble again for making racially insensitve comments, radio host Don Imus says he was just being “sarcastic.” On his radio show this morning, Imus said he was just trying to “make a sarcastic point” when he asked yesterday, about NFL player Pacman Jones being arrested six times, “What color is he?”

 

Imus said,

 

“What people should be outraged about is that they arrest blacks for no reason. I mean, there’s no reason to arrest this kid six times.”

Even Pacman Jones himself was offended by the comments. Jones told The Dallas Morning News,

 

“I’m truly upset about the comments. Obviously Mr. Imus has problems with African-Americans. I’m upset, and I hope the station he works for handles it accordingly. I will pray for him.”

WHAT A SHOCK: DON IMUS IN TROUBLE AGAIN

June 24, 2008

MORON!

They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. Apparently you can’t stop them from making racist comments either.

Unbelievably, just a year after losing his job over making his racially insensative “nappy-headed ho’s” comment, radio talk show host Don Imus is in trouble again for making a racially charged comment.

This morning, during a news segment on his new show, Imus was told by anchor Warner Wolf that football player Pacman Jones has “been arrested six times since being drafted by Tennessee in 2005.”

Imus asked, “What color is he?”

“He’s African-American,” Wolf replied.

“Well, there you go,” Imus said. “Now we know.”

These comments are even MORE stupid and racially insensitve than Imus’ previous controversy. I don’t know who looks worse, Imus for getting in trouble so soon after returning to the air, or Citadel/ABC radio for hiring him.

Unbelievable.

A company spokesperson said Imus would address the situation on his radio show tomorrow.

PICKETERS FOLLOWING THE LAST IMUS INCIDENT

DON IMUS CALLS BARACK OBAMA A “PUSSY”

April 18, 2008

 

Radio talk show host, Don Imus, says Barack Obama “is almost a bigger pussy” than Sen. Hillary Clinton. Imus made the comments on his April 17th show (Thursday morning.)

Imus made his comments while talking about Wednesday night’s Democratic debate. In analyzing the previous night’s debate Imus said,

I thought Senator Obama was on the defensive most of the night. But they’re both sissy boys or sissy girls, or whatever. Because they talk big when they’re out on the campaign trail…then when they show up at the debate, they fold up like a couple of cheap lawn chairs. I mean, I don’t understand that. And he’s almost a bigger pussy than she is.”
