Soledad O'Brien was one of the very few people in the cable news media that was biased towards the facts and not not offending anyone in order to keep access to the politicians, democrat or Republican, in Washington.  It's a shame that the supposed "most trusted name in news" decided to fire her in favor of someone who will voice for the Wall Street bankers who created this mess in the first place, and politicians who are bought by Wall Street.  The job of a Journalist is not to bow down to the powerful and accept whatever they say in order to please them, but to inform the public about what goes on in the world, even at the expense of not pleasing anyone.  There is a difference between bad ratings on the news and not saying something the media establishment likes.

If you care about your life, what goes on in Washington and the policies that the politicians present affect your life on a daily basis, you should sign this petition this instant.  A politician, Democrat or Republican, is going to say things to you to vote for them or their party, whether what they say is true or not.   If they are allowed to get away with lies, that could bring heavy consequences to US citizens.  These heavy consequences of lackluster journalism, and silencing anyone who dare questioned authority gave us the unnecessary Iraq War for years as well as the Wall Street crash that was the consequence of a lack of oversight.  No one wants to live through that again.  The most important part of not repeating the same mistakes is through education.  That is what Soledad O'Brien did.  She stuck to the truth more than anything in asking people questions.   No more lazy journalism that hides the truth from the American people.  The American public needs journalist who actually do their job and inform people of the facts.  America needs Soledad O'Brien.

Rehire Soledad O'Brien!
