Imus in the Morning simulcast dropped from MSNBC

Reported by Chrish - April 11, 2007 -

FOXNews.com is reporting that talk-show host Don Imus has been permanently removed from the MSNBC simulcast, although he has not (yet) lost his radio position for his racist, sexist remarks April 4th.

ccording to the article,

"A growing list of sponsors — including American Express Co., Staples Inc., Procter & Gamble Co., and General Motors Corp. — said they were pulling ads from Imus' show for the indefinite future. And at the Rutgers campus in New Brunswick, N.J., about 300 students and faculty rallied to cheer for their team, which lost in the national championship game, and add their voices to the crescendo of calls for Imus' ouster."

In an aside, please note that after all the Rosie/Imus obsessing, the top story on the O'Reilly Factor is the Duke rape case being dropped. The Imus story was not even mentioned in the recitation of topics at the start of the program. This is only relevant to point out that FOX airs a commercial that claims "we're always live," but O'Reilly's show is recorded in the afternoon so it can be edited.
