ABSTRACT
The article discusses the author's view on the offensive words uttered by radio broadcaster Don Imus to the women's basketball team of Rutgers University in New Jersey. He cites that Imus presented himself on his program as an old reprobate and uttered what he believed most people think but are afraid to say. He states that instead of proposing a list of words that cannot be uttered in the airwaves to correct this matter, it is better to change the broadcast standards.
