[em]Daily News[/em] Floods the Zone on Imus

The Daily News, like most of the media, has gone completely overboard on the Imus/ Rutgers basketball story.

Today in the News alone, there were six pieces: news stories on both the press conference and the advertising angle; columns by Mike Lupica, Errol Lewis, and Filip Bondy; and an editorial!
