One simple question...

Most of us agree Don Imus was completely out of line with his sexist and racist comments, but why hasn't anyone stepped up to take action against Bernard McGuirk?

Imus made his "nappy-headed hos" comment immediately after McGuirk, executive producer of the show, called the Rutger's basketball team "hard core hos."

I agree with Donecia Pea, so I can't write anymore than what she already has. You can read her reaction below this blog.

But I have a major problem with Imus catching all the heat and McGuirk skirting out of trouble when his comments were offensive and demeaning to women.

He needs to be held accountable too.


Donecia Pea said...

EXCELLENT point! To me, his comments are EQUALLY reprehensible and unprofessional. What's happening there?

At least MSNBC FINALLY did the right thing and cancelled the show.

Ashley Northington said...

Exactly. MSNBC did the right thing by dropping the simulcast.

His comments are equally reprehensible, yet he's managed to dodge the bullet.

Da Arsonist said...

Yeah dude is just as foul.

He started the ish by saying those are some "hard-core hos." Imus and him should be fired.

And I won't even talk about the jiggaboos vs. wanna be's conversation. And they even got the movie wrong....

It's their right to have freedom of speech, but with freedom comes responsibility and they have to be held accountable for spitting such vile and degrading words.
