The members of Military Families Speak Out have started this petition to demand that CBS Executives return Montel Williams to his show, apologize to him, and place him back on the air.
It is about time someone spoke up on our behalf. He is a champion in this cause. We are losing our loved ones at a record rate, and no one in the corporate owned media dare discuss the deaths of our brave young men and women.
For just over three minutes on Saturday morning, TV talk show host Montel Williams owned the hosts of Fox and Friends. A former Marine and Naval officer, Montel lectured the stunned hosts on the stupidity of spending air time on the death of Heath Ledger, rather than covering the war in Iraq. It was a spectacle rarely seen on live cable television, as Montel exposed and condemned both tabloid &quot;news&quot; shows and much of American culture for what they have each become: shallow and greedy.
Three minutes into this awkward segment on Fox, one host cut off Montel in order to go to a commercial. Montel did not return after the break. Four days later, after 17 years as a television host, Montel lost his job.
For the record 37 soldiers have died this month, and we are reaching 4,000 dead, with 40,000 wounded. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!
Give him back his job!
