Assault on the 1st Amendment Continues- Imus Sued

Don Imus and several news organizations are facing a frivolous lawsuit from a Rutgers basketball player over the comments he made on his talk show several months ago. This suit has no basis in the law, and will likely be dismissed. This of course is nothing but a Sharpton/Jackson-like shake down to get a few bucks and make a few headlines. What makes this suit really bizarre is that Imus just settled with CBS for $20M because he was wrongfully terminated.

This has to be dismissed. Think about the precedent this would set if she should win. Good bye, SNL, Mad TV, most rap and pop artists, cartoonists, writers...
