GRUFF SAYER-OF-STUFF CALLS BLUFF
Imus is angling to get back on the air.

According to four sources close to the situation, Don Imus' lawyer, Martin Garbus, is trying to use the radio personality's impending lawsuit against CBS Radio, which hasn't been filed yet, as leverage for reinstatement.

But CBS is unmoved, and has already prepared a countersuit that it plans to file the minute Imus starts the legal showdown, say sources close to CBS' legal division.

CBS Radio fired Imus a little over a month ago for using racist language in a poor stab at comedy. But Imus' legal team believes that it can take advantage of a clause in Imus' contract stipulating that he must be warned before being fired for making offensive remarks...

Imus' firing has sent a chilling domino effect throughout the radio industry, with CBS Radio also firing personalities JV and Elvis and XM Satellite Radio suspending Opie & Anthony for 30 days for lewd comments. It's worth noting that none of these disciplinary actions were precipitated by the FCC or any other government agencies.

Who needs government censorship? We can handle it just fine on our own.

In the meantime, Opie's taking this opportunity to catch up on his beauty rest. (Did you know he could have been a model?)

P.S. Hey, I'm mentioned in Advertising Age. That's kind of cool. And the more people who understand the context of "Homeless Charlie's" remarks, the better.

P.P.S. Conor Clarke in the Grauniad: "I have a very good, very unoriginal and very selfish reason for wanting to keep regulation to a minimum: the disc jockey's freedom to say stupid things on the air protects my freedom to write stupid things about politics." Yep. If you think this is just about a couple of dopes on the radio, wake up already.

P.P.P.P.S. I love Debbie Wolf!
