Imus Replacement A Fellow White Liberal Racist

Proving the mainstream media's corporate suits remain clueless, "Imus In The Morning" syndicator Westwood One has named a fellow white liberal racist to replace the I-Man when his radio suspension begins next Monday.

Almost as bad is the fact that serial MSNBC establishment suck- up Mike Barnicle is also a plagiarist and just plain lousy talk host.

Barnicle, who turns 63 this year, has long attached himself to Boston's elitists, representing the worst of that city's notoriously- incestuous and provincial media culture.

Now winding down his radio career (he was recently reduced to just a single daily hour on the air), he remains ratings- challenged.

Today, the Boston Herald's Jesse Noyes and Jessica Heslam blew the lid off of Barnicle's own racist rants of the past, including this:

The Herald has learned that Westwood One, which syndicates Imus’ radio program, sent a memo to its affiliates telling them WTKK host Mike Barnicle will fill in for Imus when his suspension begins Monday.

Barnicle, a friend and frequent guest on Imus’ show, has been embroiled in his own controversy. In 2004, Barnicle was forced to apologize on his own radio show for using the word “mandingo” to refer to former WCVB host Janet Langhart, who is black, and her husband, former secretary of defense William S. Cohen, who is white.

Mandingos are people who live in West Africa and “Mandingo” is the name of a 1975 movie about a black slave who has an affair with a white woman.

MSNBC, which simulcasts Imus’ show, announced last night it would drop the program.

In addition, Barnicle is no stranger to extreme leftist hate speech, as evidenced by our reporting back in January (transcript by NewsBusters):

Imus: "I was – I tried to imagine how various members of the current administration would behave were they subjected to the gallows as Saddam Hussein was. Um, and I can see Rumsfeld –"

Barnicle: “He wouldn't take it. No blindfold for Rumsfeld.”

Imus: "That's what I was thinking, you know. ‘F-you.' You know, you go to the gallows with the noose you want, not the noose you– or the noose you have, not the noose you want–"

Barnicle: "That's exactly right."

Imus: "Or What- ever. But Cheney–"

Barnicle: "Just as that trap door opens, he'd drop an f- bomb to all of them."

Imus: "How about Cheney?"

Barnicle: “I don't think Cheney would make it up the steps.”

Imus: "Now this is a guy who would, this is a guy – he'd wet his pants and he'd whine and start crying."

Barnicle: "Well He would order as a last meal 400 pounds of bacon."

Why there wasn't a Secret Service investigation as a result of that conversation, your Radio Equalizer will never know. Nonetheless, hiring Barnicle as a substitute for Imus proves the network has learned absolutely nothing from this week's mega- flap.

  • More sour grapes from the pasty pudge whose only contribution to society is writing this blog; a blog primarily read by liberals who think Maloney is a joke.

    It is quite obvious that blogs on Imus drew a lot of activity in the past few days. Too bad that readers were so disinterested in your posts that only 2 or 3 comments were left, one of which was from Iowa's biggest hack.

  • Why thank you, Elmo. I didn't think you cared.

    Westwood one sucks for hosts. I think Tom Leykis landed on there when he got blown out of his KFI gig.

    I guess Westwood is sticking to the familiar with another white guilt-ridden Liberal. They wouldn't want to try a different style of host because they would lose audience who like the new person and left to follow that host when the I-man returns from susupension.

    I wish Tiny Markle was still alive. He'd blow Imus away in those two weeks.

  • Sadder yet is Maloney;s attempt to show extreme left wing hate by quoting a joke about Dick Cheney.


    yes, Imus is a Republican who hate Dick Cheney

    at 25% approval many Republicans hate Dick Cheney

    Maloney is as dumb as they come

  • Racist or Hater both are destructive and acomplish nothing good

    By Blogger stonecutter, at 13 April, 2007 06:49  

  • "I am a successful, educated, straight white christen male the poster boy for what liberals hate."

    pf1....your attitude, your horrible presentation skills, and your ability to spell the word "christian" somehow causes me to doubt the validity of your self-assessment

    by your definition, jeffrey dahmer could have been considered "successful"


    hush up, or i'm getting the lysol

  • Is this mop’s little sidekick bitch boy. Speak when you are spoken to boy.

    By Blogger pf1, at 13 April, 2007 07:52  

  • pf1,

    Hash is his own little vermin. Neither is capable of rational thought.

    By Blogger PCD, at 13 April, 2007 08:37  

  • Hash,

    Before you are so critical of someone else, consider:

    All of the rest of us know how to use the CAPS key.

    Most of us know the difference between "ability" and "inability"

    Some of can actually write a sentence or two without profanity.

    Have a pleasant day.
