# 4 - "I did a bad thing"


MSNBC has fired talk show host Don Imus saying that it would no longer simulcast
the morning radio show. In a statement, NBC news said this decision comes as a
result of an ongoing review process and many conversations with it's employees.

MSNBC apologized to the women of the Rutgers basketball team and
their viewers following a tasteless racial slur aimed at the players.

After days of mounting pressure from civil rights advocates,
advertisers and the public, the shock jock was fired.

Even though ABC picked up the show later,
Don Imus has almost faded away.
