KMOV's Larry Conners no longer at station (complained of IRS harrassment)
St. Louis Post Disgrace ^ | 5/22/2013 | Joe Holleman

Posted on 05/22/2013 1:57:07 PM PDT by Clintons Are White Trash

"For KMOV, there is no higher cause than unbiased, objective news reporting. It is what our viewers expect and it is what we work very hard to deliver. We can accept no less. Larry is certainly entitled to his opinion, but taking a personal political position on one of the Station’s Facebook pages creates an appearance of bias that is inconsistent with important journalistic standards.

"Larry’s departure has nothing to do with the particular position he took, but it does have to do with our belief that his actions made it impossible for him to report for KMOV on certain political matters going forward without at least an appearance of bias. Bringing you accurate and unbiased reporting is the reason we exist."

Don’t critisize the radio station management. They are only following orders.

You can’t work for the Ministry of Propaganda if you are going to criticize Big Brother.

A phone call from the white house clinched this. The rest of the story is bull$h!t. It’s not over, and the fascists have all the power.

Um, Conners admitted that he lied when it came out that the IRS was after him a year earlier too (for $85k in back taxes). Of course the left will jump on his lie as evidence that there really isn’t any IRS scandal.

I saw that his wife clarified the situation: he didn’t “lie”, he had an arrangement to pay back taxes...and after his interview with Obamugabe, the IRS called and said “pay us all you owe NOW.”

Thanks for the ping. I can’t believe they did this, but it is the local CBS affiliate, so maybe someone leaned on the local management.

I’m from Dallas where Belo owns WFAA and Dallas Morning News. Most people in Dallas know Belo supports Democrats over Republicans. I don’t know anyone in Dallas who actually enjoys reading the Dallas Morning News.

Conners was ordered to read a statement that was prepared by station management and not to add anything to it. Being a good employee, and the status of his position being up in the air, he did what he was told to do.

He was on a payment plan with IRS, but after the Obama interview, the plan was cancelled and a lien was placed on his home.

Good gosh! What a living nightmare, for this guy. All because the regime didn't care for his interview style...of asking honest questions.

Maybe he can get hired by Fox or The Blaze News.

Welcome to the USSA. Be a good comrade and shut up, or no Obamacare for your family. You might even lose your job.
