Don Imus’ debut on Fox Business was appropriately subdued: “I thought we were on last week,” Imus said at 6:05, after business and news headlines. “Trial run,” said news sidekick Charles McCord.
Guests on the three hour radio/TV program included Sen. John McCain and Glenn Beck. And while we may not see NBC News talent on the air, the son of one was on today. Rolling Stone‘s Matt Taibbi, son of Mike, was on to talk about his reporting on the Wall Street crisis.
McCain, by phone, said, “Congratulations and condolences… Condolences to the American people that are now going to be exposed to your rants.”
After the jump, the interview with Beck, where both men recount how they gave up the bottle, and talk about Beck’s appearance on Fox & Friends in July. Imus: “When you were on the Fox morning show and you made the remark about the president, they didn’t get blamed for it. If you were to say that here, I would’ve gotten it.”
