Larry Conners, a news anchor for St. Louis station KMOV, was fired after publicly claiming that the IRS targeted him after a somewhat contentious interview with President Obama during the 2012 election. According to The Huffington Post, Conners attempted to walk back his statement, but he was nonetheless let go from KMOV, with a public statement citing Conners’ “appearance of bias that is inconsistent with important journalistic standards.”

In the midst of the continuing investigations into the IRS targeting tea party groups during the 2012 election, Conners jumped into the mix with an allegation of his own.

On May 13th, Conners posted the following on Facebook.

    “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.”
Never delude yourself into thinking you're "influencing" or making a difference on the internet. It is an ephemeral pleasure.

So what was he fired for?  Being a loudmouth?
I won't vote for Clinton, but I cannot vote for Trump.  How could I explain to my daughter why I supported a man who sees her as nothing more than a piece of meat, a piece of a$$ for him to grope for his own private pleasure.

"Trump supporter" - the very definition of an SFI

No. Probably for criticizing THE WON.
“Let each citizen remember at the moment he is offering his vote that he is not making a present or a compliment to please an individual – or at least that he ought not so to do; but rather he is executing one of the most solemn trusts in human society for which he is accountable to God and his country.” Samuel Adams, April 16, 1781.
