philip's code

The Imus' coverage could have been from "Philip's Code." In the past, this guy insulted every group on earth and got away with it. I understand that on Good Friday he rhymed "resurrection" and "erection." No outrage in the public prints. Why now over a crack about a hairdo? News stories cited a group called the Black Journalists' Association. The pattern was typical: news is what the newspapers say it is. I'm outraged that reporters would belong to an advocacy group. Is there an organization of "Christian Journalists"? If so, why hasn't the AP sought reaction to the other slur? As Phil Davis would say: "It's 'lemming reporting,' not liberal bias, that makes people hate us."
