Don Imus Is on the Hot Seat for Racist Remarks

Howard began today wondering how old Don Imus was while looking at his front-page photograph on the New York Post, and Fred responded he was 67 years old.

This led Howard to say he was "happy" Don was suspended for two weeks for his recent remarks about the Rutgers women's basketball team, but didn't understand why the punishment didn't begin until next Monday. Howard then acknowledged Don's show somehow made money despite its poor ratings before saying it was "fun reveling in his misery."

Howard next brought up Don's appearance on the Rev. Al Sharpton's radio program yesterday, and asked why people like Michael Richards and Don thought they had to apologize to Al of all people given his own shady past.

Howard then guessed Don was about to be fired given his suspension, especially after the Rutgers players held a press conference later this afternoon to give their opinions on the controversy.
