MSNBC cancels Imus simulcast.

“MSNBC said Wednesday it will drop its simulcast of the ‘Imus in the Morning’ radio program, responding to growing outrage over the radio host’s racial slur against the Rutgers women’s basketball team. … But it did not end calls for Imus to be fired from the radio portion of his program. The show originates from WFAN-AM in New York City and is syndicated nationally by Westwood One, both of which are managed by CBS Corp. For its part, CBS has not announced plans to discontinue the show.”

UPDATE II: Another question: Where’s Russert?
