The “mainstream” media is so predictably liberal, it’s hysterical. Well, not so hysterical for St. Louis KMOV news anchor Larry Conners, who was targeted by the IRS and then fired after a contentious interview with President Obama.
During the interview, Conners confronted Obama about “jetting around” on vacations, while average Americans are struggling financially. The IRS targeted him almost immediately following. In the midst of the current IRS scandals, Conners gave his two cents on his Facebook page. On May 13 he said: “I don’t accept ‘conspiracy theories,’ but I do know that almost immediately after the interview, the IRS started hammering me… Can I prove it? At this time, no. But it is a fact that since that April 2012 interview… the IRS has been pressuring me.”
Conners tried to retract the statement, but the “mainstream” (AKA “liberal”) media had already blackballed him. KMOV announced his firing a few days later.
One can’t help but think things would be a whole lot different if Conners had conducted a “contentious” interview with a Republican administration. Instead of being fired, he probably would have gotten a raise. KMOV explained their decision in a statement, saying Conners had an “appearance of bias that is inconsistent with important journalistic standards.”
Journalistic standards? Riiight…
