Silent But Deadly


The press is getting anxious about this Imus comeback, to the point where they will report on almost anything. Case in point: today's New York Post has an article all about how Imus was at a charity auction at Christie's, yet never said a word or made a ruckus. Their headline? "Imus' Silent Night." Ho ho ho!


Anyway, according to the article, the event was hosted by himself and wife Deirdre. The Post, being their usual classy selves, creatively describes him as "a wrinkly, foulmouthed radio-show host." New York Post, why must you hate the poor sick children?


What I do find disturbing is that he bought "two front-row seats to a Hannah Montana concert." Let's hope that Levon Helm hasn't bailed on him.
UPDATE: This headline from the New York Observer says it all: "At Benefit, Imus and Son Flip Reporters The Bird." Haha, wow...

I guess some of these newspaper 'reporters' seem to think that Imus is gonna hold a press conference every time he ventures outdoors...

Imus waved...what more do they want?...lol

A new video and this is by way of PT Bartman and good and mad productions. Radio Ga Ga. Remember Queen? I remember when they all would call Imus an old Queen, I remember that pink turtleneck GRIN.

I know! It's ridiculous.

But apparently, he (and his son) gave the reporters a little more than they bargained for...

I-Man seems to be driving everyone crazy with his silence..even his I-Fans are beginning to freak...

College Girl, maybe you could do a blog about 'Official announcements' and the world of radio...

It would be a real shocker if Citadel had an Official announcement about Imus BEFORE Thanksgiving...

That is why Imus leaked info to Best, Drudge and Allan Sniffen(who, btw, usually scoops BOTH Best and Drudge)...

Official announcements in the world of radio are usually pointless, because by the time they make the official announcement, EVERYONE ALREADY knows what the deal is...


lol

Message to Imus and Wyatt, I think your # 1 too!!!

Imagine, I bet New Yorkers never, ever saw anything like that before Puleeze...Lady at the Observer. Get a life, talk about your lame copy. They must be phoning it in...I want the day off just write something up about Imus...make it negative.

What's negative about flipping the bird?

Ir's a common gesture....people do it every day...especially in rush hour traffic....
