Dear Smoking Gun, Fire Don Imus's Contract

by PG

With all the chatter about Don Imus's suing CBS because his contract allegedly encouraged him to be offensive and required that he be given a warning before being penalized for telling an off-color joke, I really hope that the Smoking Gun gets a copy of said contract and posts it. It seems mildly insane that a media outlet would sign a contract giving an employee that much freedom -- I mean, if Imus got one warning per joke, he could just vary it slightly and never be in danger of losing his job for going too far -- but if they were really desperate to keep Imus during his last round of negotiations, I suppose it's possible.
