The Village Times




Phil Donahue






Evicted notice



Date of Eviction: February 2003

Statement: It has come to our attention that Mr. Donahue has been using his eponymous show on MSNBC to provide a forum for critics of President Bush and the Iraq War. Mr. Donahue himself has questioned the administration's motives on a number of occasions. At a time when many Americans are dying in a war that we in the Village did so much to promote, our Board feels that it can no longer support Mr. Donahue's membership. Mr. Donahue presents a “difficult public face for NBC in a time of war,” according to an internal network document. We couldn't have put it better ourselves. So it is with great difficulty that we revoke Mr. Donahue's membership in the Village and evict him from the premises forthwith.
