(Newser) – Don Imus is returning to TV today, and it doesn’t bother him at all that it’s on Fox Business Network. “The perception is that even their news is skewed toward opinion—not when I watch it. It's a fair news organization,” he tells Howard Kurtz of the Washington Post. “It's not my job to defend them," he continues, but cracks at Fox, “We’re better people and have a much closer relationship with our Lord."

Imus will likely get frequent visits from personalities like Bill O’Reilly or buddy Sean Hannity, but says he’s probably “more liberal than conservative,” and doesn’t expect to change. He’s also not worried about moving to a business network. “That’s our audience,” he says. “Upscale, high-income. We have to find a way to make fun of business people, but that should be easy.” (Read more Don Imus stories.)
