I don't think I'd call Rosie O'Donnell iconoclastic. Not willingly.

As for Imus, he had his little niche, but the average person didn't listen. As with all things, he had his fan base. I'm sure they miss him, but they'll find something else to do with their time. Someone else to listen to.

I didn't really too much for him, but if people like that sort of thing, it's fine with me. I actually don't think he meant what he said -- but was trying to sound outragous. There's a slight, but important difference.

I found it interesting how this controversy built up. Shelly Palmer wrote a good essay about that aspect, and pinpointed technology as a major force in all of this. New, modern technology, which lets the average person distribute media all over the world.

It's an interesting view, worth checking out:
