Jackson and Sharpton on Intolerability

| | Comments (0)
Don Imus said some things that some people reasonably found offensive. Al Sharpton wants Imus fired, saying:

"Somewhere we must draw the line in what is tolerable in mainstream media," Sharpton said Sunday. "We cannot keep going through offending us and then apologizing and then acting like it never happened. Somewhere we've got to stop this."

The Rev. Jesse Jackson said his RainbowPUSH Coalition plans to protest Monday in Chicago outside the offices of NBC, which owns MSNBC, over the remark Imus made last Wednesday during his show.

I would rather we put a stop to the mainstream media censoring everyone that offends Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson. If we censored everyone who offended another group of people, almost everyone interesting would be censored ... including, of course, Sharpton and Jackson.

Hm. Maybe Sharpton's on to something! slashdot.org
