Here’s a story that just keeps getting creepier:

KMOV anchorman Larry Conners has been “advised” by KMOV’s parent company Belo Corp. to not make statements, post on Facebook, or participate in interviews concerning a recent controversy over Facebook comments he made about the Internal Revenue Service.

Conners has hired St. Louis attorney Merle Silverstein. Silverstein issued a letter to media outlets claiming that the corporate order “is the only reason for his silence.”

Bullying — official, unofficial, or just plain illegal — of reporters is the norm for this administration. When will one of them shout, “ENOUGH!” and blow the lid off?

That would force them to stop their current blowing, which I suspect, is a hard habit to break.

At this point, it may simply be a matter of the corporate lawyers keeping a lid on things until they know where exactly they stand. I'd be shocked if a lawsuit isn't being drawn up as we speak. They're just asking him to keep a low profile until they bring the hammer down.

At least, that's my hope. If they are in "don't poke the bear" mode, we have every right to be pissed.

A couple of really high-profile class action lawsuits would make my day, that's for sure!
