Don Imus

I'm barely aware of Don Imus. And I hardly need to comment on his (and his producer's) recent comments. But the main subject of discussion today seems to be whether his apology is sufficient, and on that subject, I just want to refer readers to this article from FAIR (Fairness and Accuracy in Media), which details Imus' long history of similar remarks, and his history of quickly-forgotten apologies for those remarks. In all the discussion I've heard so far on the subject, I have yet to hear anyone other than FAIR lay out the facts so clearly.

Update: I see (from watching Keith Olbermann) that Matt Lauer on the Today Show did bring up the issue of past apologies.
