Montel Williams fired for speaking unpopular truth on Fox

Montel did not return after the commercial break, three days later his 17-year running show was cancelled. I am not the biggest Montel fan in existence but this shows the power of Faux and the MSM—warmongers all. This is truly disgusting.

Alright, I don't write fast enough to make you a transcript or anything, but damn Dori, it was wonderful.

Montel comes out to talk about the pressures of celebrity as seen in the death of Heath Ledger (apparently there was a 15 min segment scheduled)...well, Montel said he was sad for Heath's family but he wasn't going to talk about it. He said that its ridiculous to talk about one STAR dying when 28 troops have died in Iraq since Jan 1 and we don't know any of their names. And the idiot talking heads tried to say it was because its all the audience wants to hear and Montel said NOPE its because you want high ratings.

He refused to discuss Heath and repeatedly returned to Iraq. They totally talked over him, continued to show pics of Heath on the split screen and when they went to commercial, the idiot didn't EVEN MENTION, when he did his recap, what Montel had actually talked about.

Wow, I'm not a huge Montel fan, but I sure as fuck respect him a bunch more now.

I don't watch talk shows, but hooray for Montel! If there's a site for us to send him thank you's, let's find it and post the link here! :D

Wow! Thanks lefty for the information. Sounds like Montel at least has his head on straight!

I agree with Catherine. If there is a way to say thank you to Montel, lets do it. It does pay to tell people when they do the right thing!

Maybe if we had more Montels, our country wouldn't be in so much trouble.
