NEW YORK (AP) - CBS fired Don Imus from his radio show Thursday, the final blow for the broadcaster who called the Rutgers women's basketball team "nappy-headed hos."
MSNBC had already pulled the plug on his talk show's television simulcast amid the uproar over his racial slur. Imus has apologized repeatedly for his comments.

He's done a lot of good things over the years and I think it's terrible that people like rev. Sharpton are crucifying him over some bad judgement.
Listen to the rap music stars who use those words over and over, they should not be permitted to carry on either. Freedom of speech should work all around.
I have 2 black nephews who wouldn't call another black person a ho.
Don apologized and that should be the end of it.
This has turned into a witch hunt and Imus should not have been fired by MSNBC.
I won't watch their chanel any more.
