MO News Station Fires Anchor Who Talked About IRS Shakedown

St. Louis TV news station KMOV has fired Larry Conners, the news anchor who revealed the IRS shook him down after asking President Obama tough questions in an interview.

The station says of his departure:

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.
