Good Morning, Delaware County!
So, CBS3 pulled the plug on Larry Mendte yesterday. The Delco-born television news reader is out of a job for the moment, probably heading down to the coffee shop in Chestnut Hill to drown his sorrows.
Or something like that. Unlike others who have been fired over the last few months, Mendte won't have much trouble finding a new job.
Still, he will have a lot of time on his hands for the short term. To that end, how about this. Here's an offer for Mendte to bring is, well, unique brand of humor to the rest of the world. How about a video blog, Larry. Send along some clips and we'll check them out here at Rise and Shine and post them. You never know, it might just work.
Speaking of those speaking, does Don Imus really not get it or is he just trying to drum up some ratings buzz.
During a show Monday morning, he made what many consider another racist comment.
You be the judge, here's what was said:
During an on-air conversation about the arrests of suspended Dallas Cowboys cornerback Adam Jones, Imus asked, "What color is he?"
Told by sports announcer Warner Wolf that Jones, who used to be nicknamed Pacman, is "African-American," Imus responded: "There you go. Now we know."
Of course, Imus, who is never at a lack for words, said he was misunderstood. He was trying to say Jones was being picked on because he was black.
I think Don Imus is too old and stupid to be on the air. These kinds of radio shows, be it Imus, Rush, or whoever do nothing but spread hate. Whatever happened to just playing music on the radio.
