Bp (NYSE:BP), Obama Connection Comment Results in TV Anchor Being Fired

TV anchorman Doug McKelway was fired for his comments concerning the connection between Barack Obama and BP (NYSE:BP). McKelway said Obama had received the largest BP campaign contribution in history, $77,051.

The story centered around a small demonstration on Capital Hill, which McKelway was covering. He noted it was a representation of "far-left environmental groups," adding it could "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."

News director and general manager, Bill Lord, didn't like McKelway talking about Obama that way, or about Democrats in general, noting the cap-and-trade bill would increase everyone's utility bills, and Democrats wouldn't pass it before November elections.

Lord confronted McKelway about the broadcast, and after a yelling match, he was put on indefinite suspension in the latter part of July.

Incredibly, McKelway was fired by WJLA-TV, citing citing insubordination and misconduct.
