Right, but both Jackson and Sharpton have also had multiple incidents as well. I guess you could say they received their "slap on the wrist" when we all decided that neither would make a good publicly elected official!

In addition to advertisers bailing, I think I read that the President of CBS Corp publicly stated he supported Imus being fired.
