CBS fires Gen. Batiste over VoteVets ad.
Iraq veteran Gen. John Batiste ‘has been asked to leave his position as a consultant to CBS News’ over a new VoteVets ad criticizing the Iraq war. He was interviewed [Thursday] by MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann.
From Carolyn Kay: ‘Click through to watch the video. You can be for the war and do commentary for CBS, but you can’t be against the war and do commentary for CBS. And just how is this different from the blacklisting of the 1950s?’
☞ General Batiste is a strong Republican. It’s really worth watching at least the first few minutes of this 6-minute video.
Lots more stuff to write today, but the General deserves our undivided attention.
