When MSNBC announced they would stop simulcasting Imus, the head of NBC news said…
“I take no joy in this. It’s not a particularly happy moment, but it needed to happen,” he said. “I can’t ignore the fact that there is a very long list of inappropriate comments, of inappropriate banter, and it has to stop.”
Now they have announced they will simulcast the radio show of a guy out of Philadelphia. What’s he like? Media Matters gives us an idea.
“if everyone follows Dr. Abboud’s prescription … you’re going to have women who will leave the home and now get a great-paying job, because you will have gotten them well educated.” He continued, “But then they’re not going to be around to instill these lessons in their kids. In other words, it occurs to me that perhaps you’ve provided a prescription to bring this great success to an end.”
Yeah, they’re really sensitive to offending people over there at MSNBC. This guy will be muuuuuuuch better, you can tell.
