Earlier today, we reported that Don Imus has announced that he will be leaving Fox Business News at the end of May after he went on a profanity-filled rant against Dana Perino last week.
Now, Imus’ Fox News colleague Greta Van Susteren has spoken out to slam the Imus In The Morning host.
“Let me be the first to respond to this: Don Imus is bitter and mean spirited (maybe trying to get attention as his show ends May 29?),” she wrote on her blog. “I have no idea what provoked this — but it sure is nasty and unwarranted. It is not exactly the kind of legacy one wants to have as one leaves a show. Is this how he wants everyone to remember him? And Dana, as a true professional, should just ignore it.”
Her comments were made in response to a segment in Imus’ show last Thursday in which he verbally destroyed President Bush’s former Press Secretary.
“First of all, she was the [Bush White House] press secretary, that was a mercy move,” he said of Perino on Thursday. “Another no-talent loser. Honest to God. Are you kidding me? She sucks and her book sucks.”
What do you think about this? Do you support Imus, or is Van Susteren in the right here? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
