CBS Fires Don Imus

Reported by Marie Therese - April 12, 2007 -

Neil Cavuto just announced that CBS has fired Don Imus from his gig as the result of the racially charged comments he made regarding the Rutgers women's basketball team. "He has lost his job on TV, he has lost his job on radio," Cavuto said. It would seem that the power of green has spoken. According to Cavuto, many of Imus' most loyal advertisers have withdrawn their sponsorship of the show. According to a statement from CBS, it was pressure from "concerned groups" that influenced their decision.
