Report: CBS To Settle Up with Imus

8/14/2007 1:02 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Associated Press is reporting that shock jock Don Imus has reached a settlement with CBS, after the broadcaster was fired for making racist and sexist comments about the Rutgers women's basketball team. Calling Al Sharpton!

According to an AP source, the settlement keeps CBS out of court and away from Imus' threatened $120 million breach of contract lawsuit and a possible "non-disparaging agreement" which would keep Imus from speaking negatively about his former employer. Shut yo' mouth!

In addition, WABC radio in New York is reportedly in talks with the I-man to bring him back to the airwaves.

huh?    

recycle_reject alert? First off, ASS is not spelled with two Z's. Your ghetto spelling does not impress, sorry. Second...he should never have been fired for WORDS, and lastly...the only asses that should be shipped to Iraq should be rappers.

here's a thought    

Don't hate on black women just because we don't date men we are not attracted to. No need to get racial. Some of you haters must be too fugly and miserable to attract your own kind. :)

AT LEAST IMUS IS HONEST .. TMZ AND HARVEY LEVIN SOLD US OUT WHEN THEY BASHED LAURA BUSH AND PUT THE MOST DISRESPECTFUL SITE FOR MERV GRIFFIN'S DEATH.

I'll listen to Imus, I'll watch him on TV, and know that he gives from his heart to children, blacks and whites alike. I never like bigotry, but I like him for he was doing what he was paid to do. I knew too, that Sharpton never served time in prison for pushing a rape case against a man by child Tuana Brawely who lied .. where that man lost his family and all.

GOOD FOR IMUS !!!!!

BAD TMZ !!!!

Don Imus is a pig. He is a bigot and racist, and he will burn in hell, he is so ugly that
all that money is not going to get him a decent enough plastic surgery, He is ugly inside
and out. He is just like Al Sharpton. They should both be handed over to Michael Vick
one more fight, fight on the uglies! After the fight is over, they should be taken to Iraq
and dropped right in the middle of the war.

Don Imus is no racist and no pig. You obviously never listened to him in your life. I find your comments hateful but you have a right to say them.

Come back Imus, we miss you!! It's been too long!

The I-man is coming back and I'm glad. If you don't like it, turn the dial. You have a right to do that. I have a right to listen. It is foolish to want to give up your freedom of speech.

GOOD NEWS is here at last!

Don Imus cannot come back soon enough for those of us who have autistic children, and there are thousands of us. He was our champion and we need him back.

Congratulations to the I-Man! Get Bernie and come back soon.
