Surprised Imus Got ANY Punishment

I have to admit, I am very surprised that radio talker Don Imus got ANY punishment for his racist remarks regarding the Rutgers women's basketball team.
I will not rehash the remarks but allude to the dead giveaway as to why Mr. Imus was suspended for two weeks. Mr. Imus went to beg forgiveness from the "Reverend" Al Sharpton.
Essentially, the "Reverend" Al did not give him forgiveness. After two hours on the air, "Reverend" Sharpton said that Mr. Imus should still be fired.
Well, the powers that be on CBS Radio and MSNBC had to do something. If they did nothing, the outrage among the race hucksters would grow and even his friends in the DDBMSM would not be able to cover him.
So, they give him a slap on the wrist. There is no indication if the suspension is with or without pay.
Again, I do not think this rises to level above any of the numerous remarks he has made about many groups over the years that Mr. Imus has said on his broadcast. But, the fair thing to do would be to fire him. Because by not firing Mr. Imus, the DDBMSM is covering because he is one of them.
And that is where all this lies. Mr. Imus will get to go to his ranch for children with cancer in New Mexico, beg more forgiveness and will keep his job. Again, I ask, have you seen Rush Limbaugh on Monday Night Football? Or Michael Savage on MSNBC? Because they made bad comments and are on the right.
