Yep, that’s right. All Imus said was “Nappy Headed Hoes” and Letterman called Sarah Palin a slut, and joked about her 14 year old daughter being raped by a 33 year old baseball player. Then he had the balls to say he meant her 18 year old daughter. Yeah, that makes it all O.K. What a useless piece of sh!t. Well anyway, there’s a rally tomorrow and the details are below. Oh, and did I mention, it’s the same company that employed Imus, and now employes Letterman? That would be CBS.
NEW YORK, Jun 15, 2009 (BUSINESS WIRE) — A diverse coalition of concerned citizens, whose website is www.FireDavidLetterman.com, today announced a Fire David Letterman Rally on Tuesday, June 16, from 4:30 pm to 7:30 pm on the sidewalks outside the Ed Sullivan Theater, located at 1697 Broadway in New York City. CBS films the Late Show with David Letterman at the Ed Sullivan Theater. Tuesday’s show, hosted by Letterman, will be taped at 5:30 pm, and will feature guest Michelle Pfeiffer.
Anna Barone, who worked for Hillary Clinton’s Presidential Campaign, and later for Democrats for McCain, called on CBS CEO Les Moonves to fire David Letterman for his sexist insults of both Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and Palin’s 14 year old daughter.
“David Letterman’s disgraceful comments were a violation of standards of common decency. They were as bad as the comments Don Imus made that caused CBS to fire him in 2007. CBS needs to apply the same standards to David Letterman they applied to Don Imus,” said Barone.
John Ziegler, producer of the documentary film Media Malpractice, called for representatives of the New York City Chapter of NOW to join the rally, and for the group to call for CBS to fire David Letterman.
“In 2007 NOW called for the firing of Don Imus in a situation that was far less egregious than what happened here. Are they once again going to sell out their principles for politics? It is clear that Letterman needs to be held accountable in some way for this and the unprecedented media assault on the Palin family must end,” said Ziegler.
New York State Assemblyman Brian Kolb, who has already publicly sent a letter to CBS CEO Les Moonves stating that CBS should fire Letterman, is also one of the leaders of the Fire David Letterman Movement, whose website is www.FireDavidLetterman.com.
Michelle Malkin has an opinion too. (I just love her) Letterman’s half-assed apology
Just a side note, I hope Todd has a few “personal moments” with David.
