Newsbusters noted that there is no consensus on the correct spelling for Don Imus's favorite word. UPI uses "ho's," AP uses "hos" and the LA Times uses "hoes." As of last night, CBS radio and MSNBC TV have both suspended his show for two weeks.
Meanwhile, the Rutgers women's basketball team has agreed to meet with Imus. Their coach Vivian Stringer (formerly of Iowa) said: "While they worked hard in the classroom and accomplished so much and used their gifts and talents, you know, to bring the smiles and the pride within this state in so many people, we had to experience racist and sexist remarks that are deplorable, despicable, and abominable and unconscionable. It hurts me."
What I don't get is why people like Bill O'Reilly and Rush Limbaugh get away with making racist and sexist remarks almost every day and it doesn't make headlines.
