Montel Williams Fired for Speaking the truth about the Surge - anyone suprised?
For just over three minutes on Saturday morning, TV talk show host Montel Williams owned the hosts of Fox and Friends. A former Marine and Naval officer, Montel lectured the stunned hosts on the stupidity of spending air time on the death of Heath Ledger, rather than covering the war in Iraq. It was a spectacle rarely seen on live cable television, as Montel exposed and condemned both tabloid "news" shows and much of American culture for what they have each become: shallow and greedy.
Three minutes into this awkward segment on Fox, one host cut off Montel in order to go to a commercial. Montel did not return after the break. Four days later, after 17 years as a television host, Montel lost his job. For the record 37 soldiers have died this month

hey Montel 83 U.S. soldiers died in January of 07.

January of 08 my data says 38

[link to icasualties.org]

that is more than a 50% decline from Jan. 07 total

soldiers die in war.

after the surge less soldiers are dying.

How can anyone deny that the surge is working?

I'm sure the day after his FOX News tirade, the suits at CBS called him on the carpet and told him point-blank to clean out his desk.

For a second I thought he was just retiring until I found this:

"Fate of "The Montel Williams Show" was sealed when key Fox-owned stations opted not to renew it for the 2008-09 season. "

Whether this happened before his appearance or after is not clear or whether there is a connection or not is unknown.

Re: Montel Williams Fired for Speaking the truth about the Surge - anyone suprised?
"how many troops died last January 2007", this is the premise of a positive stance on this surge????????

Get real, this past week alone we have dropped 100,000lbs of bombs on a rural area 10km south of Baghdad. We have returned to fighting an air war that is why the deaths have dropped but not the deaths of Iraqis. The week before we dropped 40,000 lobs of ordnance. We are back to indiscriminate killing. One day you might experience this and then you will know just how callous you were in your thinking.

Montel Williams should be the recipient of a ton of emails and snail mail congratulating him on his remarks which earn him personal valor.

Anderson Cooper should be the recipient of just the opposite in remakrs as he is a worm and was so rude to Ron Paul during the debate last night.

The statement that probably did it, was that if they talked about the soldiers, people would change the channel. Talking about some hollywierd fuckwad, keeps the eyeballs on the screen. But then that makes fucks news seem like they don't care about soldiers or the war. Big time conflict.
