Imus firing hurts publishing; Kerry support hurts Imus

Terry Keenan from "Cashin' In" writes in the NY Post that the firing of Don Imus will hurt the publishing industry, which relied on him to feature prominent nonfiction authors. Keenan writes, "Big publishing stood by Imus throughout the week, even as far larger sponsors, including Proctor & Gamble and GM, ran for the exits."

Besides "big publishing," Imus received some surprising support from a man not generally known for having a backbone: John Kerry. Maybe it's because Sen. Nuance can empathize with saying something stupid on air. Or perhaps it's so he can say he supported Imus before he turned against him.
