Oh,this morning's "rewound" was pretty good, so now I can continue my Imus day.

Ginger

A very wise young woman's response to Keith Olbermann.

Hillary sucks. She's a loser who thinks she deserves to be President after looking the other way while her husband diddled interns in the Oval Office. It's time for that bitter, shrill harpy to go back to her job as the Senate cleaning lady. Obama has exposed her as the loser that she really is.

McCain/Crist '08!

Can We Get An Amen!

Crist, no way! Mr. Orangeman is not going to help McCain

RIght on Sal!!

Obama dissing Hillary. He's as hostile as every other man!

RTR

This 'Media" or MSM so many people here target for blame for so many things.

Do you distinguish between the opinionated talkers who front so much of the cable fare, and the journalists/reporters who fill the newscasts & newspapers with what is labelled for better or worse as news?

I realize the line is getting fuzzier .. but the show hosts should be regarded in the same league as columnists; all are paid to have opinions. Reporters, on the other hand, are duty bound to try to be objective.

When everybody can be included under the umbrella term "the media", it makes the criticism much too general.

The conservative talk radio with which so many of you are in lockstep is "the media" too. In broadcasting it is the 'dominant' factor, therefore qualifies as MSM.
I don't know how Rush & Sean & all the other righties can continue to blast "the media" ... when they themselves have become so dominant in their chosen "media."

Brian

the WNBC clips dont work for me.

Did they play the rewind this morning?

I missed that.

Brian

Damn I wish I coulda heard the Imus hour this morning. Anybody have a link for it?

Brian

And btw, RTR I am in lockstep with NO one in the media.

As I write this, I don't who the "reporters" are. It isn't easy to find out either because I have tried to find it. I don't believe MSNBC has a reporter on it but I'm not sure. But they sort of pass themselves off as serious newscasters -- as "the place for politics", but in reality it is one solid opinion twenty-four hours a day. It is misleading since they host their own shows, et cetera.

So, anybody, who are the reporters on tv?

I don't think it is surprising that they all be lumped together as the MSM or the media, because there is no distinction made or disclaimer when they speak that they are not real journalists. I'm talking about tv, not radio. I think everybody know Rush Limbaugh is not a journalist.

Results: I don't believe any of them.

*everybody knows

Must be a treatment for Obsessive Compulsive Bitchin About Everything Disorder.

Bruce put together Imus Rewound on WABC from the 70's on WNBC.

Brian

thanks for that Ree

Brian

Bill Clinton now says in public Obama can't win.

the knives are out...

http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2008/05/26/bill-clinton-says-wife-is-victim-of-a-‘cover-up’/

imo, if Bill is saying Obama can't win, that means the VP deal is DEAD.
Now it's 'go for the jugular' time.

Thanks to Ree & Bruce.

Also a big thanks go Ginger. That young lady was excellent and brought up many good points.


When I first heard abour the RFK remarks I was incensed. But then I found out (as usual) the media pulled her comments out of context.

The MSM would have you believe that HRC was comparing herself to Kennedy and/or she was trying to get Obama assainated!! She was using it as a time point of reference as far as I can tell. Now I have NEVER had sny great love for either of the Clintons but now I realize that this woman cannot say ANYTHING without the wrath of the MSM falling ono her. I almost feel sorry for her and if you guys really knew me, you would know that that scenario is laughable.

Well, now HRC knows what it is like to have the left really hate you for no good reason.

I'd run as an independant(it got Liberman re-elected in my home state of CT).

Talk about being thrown under the bus!!!

Brian

I remember back in January msnbc was harping on the fact that Hillary was up 20 points nationwide.

They were behind her 100%.
They just have gone where the wind's blow, that's all.

IT just brings up the fact that no one in the media really has any loyalty to anything or anyone.

If women think that the Democratic party would be steadfastly in support of abortion even if the country turned strongly against it, think again.
The media is like that. They used to love her now they HATE her.
She is head and shoulders a better candidate then OBama is, tho no question.
He's so bad, it's a joke.

DTT

...Dick Gregory on today. Another tedious conversation about race on the Karith show. Off to sports radio I go!

Mark

enough with this idiot Bo Dietl

Mark

Please shut up Bo Dietl

Karith didnt know who ( Vladimir) Putin was ?
BRING BACK IMUS REWOUND FROM 1972!!!

Mark

Hackensack Medical Center commercials make me ill infering that hurses in other hospitals are incsapable of getting patient " the correct dosage of the correct medication"

Mel

Oh god, shoot me. I hate "Bahrain's World" To think someone spent time writing this and is getting paid...

Fidel Castro endorses Obama

Newsweek Poll even after their lovefest stories about Obama aka the Cardboard Messiah.

Hillary 48% McCain 44%
Obama 46% McCain 46%

Mel

Thank you, Imus. You're right, that was a new low. Please bring back Bernie and Larry. Anyone

boohoo

White people are so ignorant..according to Imus and his guest

Karith is definitely running the show. She said the Iman should apologize, and sure enough, he did. The Iman has be thoroughly emasculated!

Mel

I'm taking the show off my DVR record list to express my displeasure, why waste space when I can record Scooby Doo and Barney.

I turned the channel when Gregory started in about how black kids drown because they don't have access to pools. This is bullsheet - when I was in school in Boston in the early 90s, the inner cities all had public pools. Blacks have had access to pools for many, many years now and can learn to swim if they want.

What was the music on Friday? Where have all the A list musicians gone? The studio is across from MSG and they can't attract anyone better?

Jack

yeah, the show pretty much sucked today

Did we all get our leason today on how bad white people are? We should hang our heads in shame! Imus, I'm sick of your shows pointing out that I'm a bad white person. This show sure did suck today!

Subject: What if 20 Million Illegal Aliens Vacated America?

Tina Griego, journalist for the Denver Rocky Mountain News wrote a column
titled, 'Mexican Visitor's Lament' -- 10/25/07.

She interviewed Mexican journalist Evangelina Hernandez while visiting
Denver last week. Hernandez said, 'They(illegal aliens) pay rent, buy groceries, buy clothes...What Happens to your country's economy if 20 million people go away?' That's a good question - it deserves an answer. Over 80 percent of Americans demand secured borders and illegal migration stopped. But what would happen if all 20 million or more vacated America? The answers may surprise you!

In California , if 3.5 million illegal aliens moved back to Mexico, it would leave an extra $10.2 billion to spend on overloaded school systems, bankrupt hospitals and overrun prisons. It would leave highways cleaner, safer and less congested. Everyone could understand one another as English became the dominant language again.

In Colorado, 500,000 illegal migrants, plus their 300,000 kids and grand-kids - would move back 'home', mostly to Mexico. That would save Coloradans an estimated $2 billion (other experts say $7 billion) annually in taxes that pay for schooling, medical, social-services and incarceration
costs. It means 12,000 gang members would vanish out of Denver alone.

Colorado would save more than $20 million in prison costs, and the terror that those 7,300 alien criminals set upon local citizens. Denver Officer Don Young and hundreds of Colorado victims would not have suffered death, accidents, rapes and other crimes by illegals.

Denver Public Schools would not suffer a 67 percent drop-out/flunk-out rate because of thousands of illegal alien students peaking 41 different languages. At least 200,000 vehicles would vanish from our gridlocked cities in Colorado.

Denver 's four percent unemployment rate would vanish as our working poor would gain jobs at a living wage.

In Florida, 1.5 million illegals would return the Sunshine State back to America, the rule of law, and English.

In Chicago, Illinois , 2.1 million illegals would free up hospitals, schools, prisons and highways for a safer, cleaner and more crime-free experience.

If 20 million illegal aliens returned 'home', the U.S. Economy would return to the rule of law. Employers would hire legal American citizens at a living
wage. Everyone would pay their fair share of taxes because they wouldn't be working off the books. That would result in an additional $401 Billion in IRS income taxes collected annually, and an equal amount for local, state and city coffers. No more push '1' for Spanish or '2' for English. No more confusion in American schools that now must contend with over 100 languages that degrade the educational system for American kids. Our overcrowded schools would lose
more than two million illegal alien kids at a cost of billions in ESL and free breakfasts and lunches.

We would lose 500,000 illegal criminal alien inmates at a cost of more than $1.6 billion annually. That includes 15,000 MS-13 gang members who distribute $130 billion in drugs annually would vacate our country.

In cities like L.A., 20,000 members of the ' 18th Street Gang' would vanish from our nation. No more Mexican forgery gangs for ID theft from Americans! No more foreign rapists and child molesters!

Losing more than 20 million people would clear up our crowded highways and gridlock. Cleaner air and less drinking and driving American deaths by illegal aliens!

America's economy is drained. Taxpayers are harmed. Employers get rich. Over $80 billion annually wouldn't return to the aliens' home countries by cash transfers. Illegal migrants earned half that money untaxed, which further drains America's economy - which currently suffers an $8.7 trillion debt.

At least 400,000 anchor babies would not be born in our country, costing us $109 billion per year per cycle. At least 86 hospitals in California, Georgia and Florida would still be operating instead of being bankrupt out of existence because illegals pay nothing via the EMTOLA Act.

Americans wouldn't suffer thousands of TB and hepatitis cases rampant in our country-brought in by illegals unscreened at our borders.

Our cities would see 20 million less people driving, polluting and grid locking our cities. It would also put the 'progressives' on the horns of a dilemma; illegal aliens and their families cause 11 percent of our greenhouse gases. Over one million of Mexico 's poorest citizens now live inside and along our border from Brownsville, Texas to San Diego,
California in what the New York Times called, 'colonias' or new neighborhoods. Trouble is, those living areas resemble Bombay and Calcutta where grinding poverty, filth, diseases, drugs, crimes, no sanitation and worse. They live without sewage, clean water, streets, elec tricity, roads or any kind of sanitation.

The New York Times reported them to be America 's new ' Third World ' inside our own country. Within 20 years, at their current growth rate, they expect 20 million residents of those colonias. (I've seen them personally in Texas and Arizona ; it's sickening beyond anything you can imagine.) By enforcing our laws, we could repatriate them back to Mexico. We should invite 20
million aliens to go home, fix their own countries and/or make a better life in Mexico . We already invite a million people into our country legally more than all other countries combined annually. We cannot and must not allow anarchy at our borders, more anarchy within our borders and growing lawlessness at every level in our nation.

It's time to stand up for our country, our culture, our civilization and our way of life.

Blacks aren't the only minority in this country. You don't hear the rest of the varied races whining and crying about everything or blaming someone. No, they're too busy trying to make their lives better!!!!!!! COME ON IMAN. LISTEN TO YOUR FANS OR YOU WON'T HAVE ANY LEFT!!!!!!

Mel

Sorry the above is so long but I thought it important - scroll past if you don't care about this issue ruining this country

tired

Mel, Good post. Now I know why they're not whining and crying. Why would they, they've got it made!
Let's take America back people!!!!!

tired

How the HE** did so many sneak in here without someone doing something about it a LONG time ago. Why were'nt we inforcing laws before it got so out of control????? HOW????????

rockytrail

I think Imus must be planning a move to B.E.T. I had to check the station number today when Gregory was on to make sure I was still on RFD. Seriously, I feel sorry for the Iman.

The following is the 2007 winning entry from an annual contest at Texas A&M University calling for the most appropriate definition of a contemporary term. This year's term was ' Political Correctness '. The winner wrote:

'Political Correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.'

poorbruce

Our old pal Bruce is at it again. I guess he just can't stay away from here. Hey Bruce it must kill you that you can't comment here so you have to go on the "other" site and BS them over there about the people on here! Talk about needing professional help?? Look in the mirror!

Mel, what a great post!!!

Did you read that somewhere or did you research it? It makes me sick to think that all this sheet has been going on for so long.

A lot of people in government have dropped the ball. And a lot of voters like me dropped the ball by not paying enough attention to these things. I don't know about all of you but I feel helpless and hopeless most of the time. And we shouldn't! Washington has us brainwashed!!

I think the tide will turn soon. Everywhere I go complete strangers will start talking about how bad things are, how noo one is impressed by selection of candidates,etc.

I don't listen to Imus anymore at all. There are no "good parts" to wait for. When I pointed out last December what a wuss he had become, many people jumped all over me. I would love to know what Charles, Bernie Lou et al really think about the show. I am surprised he made any $$ on his radiothon.

I am not going to support someone who hates me for being white!! F 'em!!

Tired, I'm tired too!!

Mary Lynn

Had to go and visit the other site after reading "Poor Bruce's" comments. I laughed out loud!! Talk about being ridiculous!!!

Nobody has a gun to your head Bruce.

Mary Lynn

Jimo

After faithfully following Imus for decades, I have come to accept the fact that I am just not interested in the show, in it's current form. The reasons are many, but the most important ones are that it's become boring, tedious, pandering, stiff and uncomfortably unfunny.

Ree

Polls show Congress with an average approval rating of 25 percent. Bush gets a 31 percent average, according to the political Web site.

I don't know what political Web Site? I am looking for the stats but the date was May 14th 2008.

Tammy Bruce said, that American Citizens have not been this engaged in their government in a along time and that whoever gets elected come Nov., that Americans are going to be busy for the next 4 years the next President, Congress ect..shouldn't think it is going to be a cake walk. Tammy Bruce describes herself as a Coservative Independent. Alot of folks unhappy with their Government.

sal

Bruce is a loser, a real nut-job. glad he's gone from this site.soory the other site has to put up with his sh**

bella

Somebody above said Karith said Imus should apologize and he did. What was he apologizing for? I didn't see the show today.

To Mel & Others,

Did you wonder how much $$ is spent on all the automatic lines we deal with with endlessly to have EVERYTHING in Spanish also?

Learn the language. And I am sick to death of seeing ads that only want people who are bilingual!!

You've got me on a tear Mel! LOL

Mary Lynn

It was a joke he made about someone, I can't remember exactly. You know how he jokes --or use to. She got all upset and started whining that he should apologize, then I think Charles chimed in. The Iman is or has been whipped, lets face it. So sad:(

I SOOOOO agree with you Mel!

Sorry, I meant Mary Lynn
