CBS Fires Imus


C-B-S has fired radio host Don Imus.
The company was under growing pressure to terminate the host
after offensive remarks aimed at the Rutgers women's basketball team last week.
C-B-S President and Chief Executive Officer Leslie Moonves says there's been a lot of discussion about "the
effect language like this has on our young people, particularly
young women of color trying to make their way in this society."
Moonves says that consideration "weighed most heavily" as the
company made its decision.
MSNBC let Imus go Wednesday.
