Jamieson Comments on Imus Firing

In today’s Philadelphia Inquirer, political communications scholar and Penn Press author Kathleen Hall Jamieson expressed her views on the cancellation of Imus in the Morning:

Kathleen Hall Jamieson, director of the Annenberg Public Policy Center at the University of Pennsylvania, said it was "interesting that [the firing] happened as late as it did. It should have happened the moment they were aware the statement had been made."

Jamieson wondered why mainstream journalists and politicians have continued to make appearances on a program that "almost has ritualized ridicule as a subtext."

Jamieson is co-author of Capturing Campaign Dynamics, 2000 and 2004 and editor of Electing the President, 2004: The Insiders’ View.
