The Village Times





Ashleigh Banfield






Eviction Notice


Date of Eviction: April 2003

Statement: Ms. Banfield used a speech at Kansas State University to undermine one of our pet causes: the War in Iraq. She had the temerity to suggest that certain cable news operators “wrap themselves in the American flag” and skew coverage by making the war look like “a courageous and terrific endeavor.” While we have valued Ms. Banfield's contributions, we can no longer endorse her presence in the Village. We hope this serves as a lesson to other Villagers that speaking away from the cameras is no excuse to go “off script.”


Note: Ashleigh was reinstated in January 2012.
