CBS Fires Gen.Batiste
Posted by nytexan on May 11, 2007
Yesterday CBS fired Gen. Batiste over his VoteVets.Org ad. Are you outraged? I am. Batiste was fired for speaking against the Bush administration on the war. Batiste was hired by CBS for his military knowledge and experience. But I guess they just wanted him to sit there and just shake his head in agreement.
Batiste’s ad for a non profit organization that has no ties to either party should not have been a threat to CBS or a perceived connection. It’s obvious that if a consultant speaks out against Bush, the war or this administration, CBS will fire you.
I guess Batiste just didn’t have the audience that Imus had. Heck it took CBS weeks to get around to firing Imus and a nano second for them to fire Batiste. I guess CBS is run by the White House.
Contact CBS and tell them how disgusted you are with Gen. Batiste being fired. Via e-mail scroll to the bottom of the CBS.com homepage and click on the “feedback” link, or call (212) 975-4321.
