A picture named lg.jpegSid Rosenberg not happy about MSNBC issuing an apology for his racist remarks!

Imus: What happened, tell me?

Sid: I guess I said something, and ahhh..MSNBC issued an apology at my behalf last week without even asking me about it...maybe I don't want to apologize.

Then he later criticized Michael Jordan's brother for re-enlisting back into the army.

Sid: He's a no-name, who cares.


On November 23, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) announced that MSNBC had apologized for racist commentary delivered on radio host Don Imus's Imus in the Morning. In its apology, MSNBC stated: "The views expressed on the program are not those of MSNBC. Having said that, it was unfortunate that these remarks were telecast on MSNBC. We sincerely apologize to anyone who was offended by these remarks."

From the November 12 edition of MSNBC's Imus in the Morning:

DON IMUS, host: They're [Palestinians] eating dirt and that fat pig wife [Suha Arafat] of his is living in Paris.

ROSENBERG: They're all brainwashed, though. That's what it is. And they're stupid to begin with, but they're brainwashed now. Stinking animals. They ought to drop the bomb right there, kill 'em all right now.
