Imus Fired: In Emotional 2 Hour Meeting, NBCers Said “We Stand For Something Better”

In yesterday’s Philadelphia Inquirer, Gail Shister quoted NBC News correspondent Ron Allen, who participated in Tuesday’s two hour meeting with Steve Capus.

“There were many strong feelings,” Allen told Shister. “We felt if we continued to have Don Imus and his brand of programming on the air, we would be tainted. We all believed we could rise above this. We needed to say to America, to the people who watch us: ‘We believe there’s a higher ideal we can hold ourselves to. We stand for something better.’”
