NABJ: Keep Imus Off The Air

imus_rutgers_update.jpgAl Sharpton might okay with it, but the National Association of Black Journalists has wee bit of a problem with Imus‘ rumored return to the airwaves. Says NABJ president Bryan Monroe:

“NABJ and America applauded in April the decision of national broadcasters to remove his language from the national airwaves. We would hope that, just a few months later, they would not substitute a desire to cash in for the need to stand by their convictions.”

Sharpton, via Radar: “My position is that we never called for him to be permanently barred from being on the air. We’ll see when he comes back, and if he comes back, what are the boundaries and what is the understanding. We’ll be monitoring the situation, but we wanted him to pay for being a repeat abuser, and he paid. We never said we didn’t want him to make a living.”
