WJLA-TV ABC7's veteran anchorman Doug McKelway has been fired for a verbal dispute with the station's director after McKelway broadcasted a "sharply worded live report about congressional Democrats and President Obama."
It all started when Anchorman Doug McKelway covered a demonstration in Washington, D.C. by environmental groups protesting the influence of oil-industry contributions to Congressional members.
In his piece, McKelway said the sparsely attended event attracted protesters "largely representing far-left environmental groups." He went on to say the protest "may be a risky strategy because the one man who has more campaign contributions from BP than anybody else in history is now sitting in the Oval Office, President Barack Obama, who accepted $77,051 in campaign contributions from BP."
After a brief taped segment updating efforts to cap the BP well, McKelway added that the Senate was unlikely to pass "cap-and-trade" legislation this year, because "the Democrats are looking at the potential for huge losses in Congress come the midterm elections. And the last thing they want to do is propose a huge escalation in your electric bill, your utility bill, before then."

McKelway has accused the media of showing liberal favoritism in the past. Thank you Doug McKelway for being brave and sharing the truth with your viewers!
