Imus Slur: “I’m Not A Bad Person. I’m A Good Person, But I Said A Bad Thing”

By Brian 

Don Imus repeated his apologies on air this morning. has the video. And the AP has some quotes:

> “Here’s what I’ve learned: that you can’t make fun of everybody, because some people don’t deserve it. And because the climate on this program has been what it’s been for 30 years doesn’t mean it’s going to be what it’s been for the next five years or whatever.”

> He said he had made the comments in the course of “trying to be funny,” but he was not trying to excuse them.

> “I’m not a bad person. I’m a good person, but I said a bad thing. But these young women deserve to know it was not said with malice.”
