For the second time in a week, NBC president Steve Capus had to send an Imus memo to staffers — and this time it’s to deliver the good-bad news:
Over the course of the last week many of you have reached out to me and expressed your strong viewpoints on the Don Imus situation. I’ve had countless conversations, e-mail exchanges and phone calls with people throughout this company. I’ve heard you loud and clear. Therefore, we are announcing tonight that MSNBC will no longer simulcast the Imus radio program …
My primary concern has been and always will be the integrity of this division. We are the guardians of the good name of NBC News — each and every one of us. There has been a trust placed in us. We must honor and respect this trust. That, in short is why we have taken this action.”
