In my previous post, I discussed Ana Marie Cox's decision to not appear on Imus again (which, if CBS cancels it, will be a unimportant promise. Anyway, she filed her Time column on why she won't be going back on Imus. It's honest, sincere, and self-critical. Bravo.
My giving up the show, I acknowledge, is too little and too late. I doubt that I'll be missed. It's depressingly easy to find female journalists who will tolerate or ignore bigotry if it means getting into the boys' club someday. (If only I were the only one.) And I'm not so vain that I think I brought something unique to the airwaves. In fact, I assume that one reason he had me on was the tantalizing prospect that I might say something scandalous or racy.
