I’ve been following the Imus kerfuffle for the last couple of days, and I’m reminded of another such incident just recently that strikes me as very similar. Don Imus called a group of people something that they (and a lot of other people) found very objectionable. Outrage was felt. Sponsors pulled their sponsorship. Demands for firing were made.
Sounds like Jim Zumbo, doesn’t it?
Only Imus made a racial comment, and Zumbo insulted a subset of gun owners.
But Zumbo lost his job. Imus gets two weeks off.
I’m just sayin’.
