I've watched yesterday's show now, and I have to say that I was pleased by the views voiced regarding Imus yesterday by everyone except for Elisabeth. I think that she's dead wrong for the reasons I've already stated. I applaud Barbara for being willing to point out the similarities between things that have been said on their show and the things that Imus said.
This is one of the cases where I think that Elisabeth is failing to see the big picture. She's saying that if you say hateful bigoted things, you shouldn't have access to the public airways to say them. Fair enough. But who is the judge of what exactly is hateful and bigoted. Elisabeth has said things that in her mind are honest and open, but in the minds of others are quite hateful and bigoted. So is she turning in her resignation?
