Gwen Ifill nails him in her op-ed in the NYT this morning.
UPDATE: A number of commenters wonder whether Imus actually called Ifill a “cleaning lady” when she was covering the White House for the New York Times. Imus’ own recollection on the Today Show this morning was:
“That happened back during the Reagan Administration.”
First of all, as Ifill herself notes, she covered the White House during the Clinton Administration. Second, how does that make it okay?
