Imus Seeks $40M for Being "Confrontational and Irreverent"

$40 M Shoot-Out With Imus Lawsuit Over Contract Balance:

Reward or Punishment after making racially insensitive remarks about the Rutgers University women’s basketball team?

A source told that Imus’ lawsuit will be based on language in the contract that "encouraged the radio host to be confrontational and irreverent on the air."

And what language in the contract would that be? "Don Imus will call the talented and athletic Rutgers University women's basketball team who never did anything to him 'nappy-headed hos'"...?

Imus got a bad rap.

I grew up in NJ listening to Imus and he was funny. A little strange and sometimes off color but I don't think he should have lost his job.
How about a remprimand, or a suspension but to fire him?

Imus made a sexist and racist remark that showed him up for what he is. Why should he be allowed to continue to spew hate speech over the airwaves?
