Imus, as of today, is gone from the radio — for now. I don’t like the mumbling malcontent and I can’t think of anyone more deserving, but this all begs the question —

How will you respond when someone with whom you agree with is forced off the air? What if someone is pressured off the air whose words are nothing more than a different political view?

hang on to your microphones.
Free speech is not just about what you want to say. It is also about defending the right of someone to say something who does not agree with you.
