Montel Fired For Criticizing Fox News War Coverage

Speak the truth, get fired: Montel and FOX
Fox-owned stations opted not to renew Montel’s show for the 2008-09 season

If you’re familiar with The Internets, you undoubtedly caught this video of Montel Williams smacking Fox News Sunday around over their asinine coverage of Heath Ledger (whose death is undoubtedly a tragedy and whose family my heart goes out to) over the more than two dozen Americans who have died in Iraq since the new year:

Well here’s the followup. Montel’s been booted from FOX.

Fate of “The Montel Williams Show” was sealed when key Fox-owned stations opted not to renew it for the 2008-09 season. But a number of other stations had cleared the show for next season, prompting CBS to offer the “Best of” package. The rerun package is sold on an all-cash basis, which is a boon to stations that had been handing over 3½ minutes of barter ad time per seg to CBS for the firstrun episodes.

Coincidence? Please.
