(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with former speechwriter for for former Senator Bill Frist Amy Holmes, CNN contributor Roland Martin and "New York Post" Robert George about the Don Imus controversy. [HOLMES - opposes the use of ugly, degrading slurs; states rappers have been mainstreaming this language.] [MARTIN - points out Imus's producer first made the remarks and that we need to put this in context; points out this is also a sexist issue.] [GEORGE - says Imus wants to have it both ways and he has a more influential power structure than the rappers.]
Cooper, Anderson
