Why Was Richard Syrett Silenced?
One of my favorite radio people is Richard Syrett, whose show I had appeared on numerous times in the past, and in fact was slated to appear again on Jan 28th…that is, until I received an email the other day from Richard notifying me that he had been fired “without cause or warning”. Given the sometimes controversial nature of Richard’s show, one can but wonder what precipitated this action. – Adam
ASTRAL MEDIA SILENCES VOICE OF TRUTH IN CANADA
On Tuesday January 20th, 2009 controversial Canadian broadcaster Richard Syrett was terminated from his post at juggernaut radio station NewsTalk 1010 without warning. Despite rising profits (Astral Media recently announced first quarter profits rose to $42.4 M, from a year ago – $37.5M) Canada’s largest radio and pay-TV operator chose to fire this courageous man. All the more puzzling is the fact that his show remained one of the top rated evening programs in the market. And, recently the station expanded his format from two hours to three and then from four nights a week to five.
Syrett’s Show quickly became a beacon of hope, light and truthfulness in an otherwise bleak and insipid, radio wasteland after his return to CFRB’s fold in early 2007. Prior to that, he exposed evil and corruption Friday nights on AM 640. His faithful fan-base, extended across North America and around the world listening in on the internet.
Tonight, the ‘owners of the system’ ‘the unelected oligarchs,’ as he calls them, can sleep well knowing he has been silenced. Their insatiable and sick appetite for world domination and enslavement can continue unabated having erased this meddlesome talk show host from public consciousness.
Syrett, an Orthodox Christian and devouted father of two-yr-old twin boys, provided an invaluable and quickly vanishing platform for fellow truth-seekers. His opinions and those of his eloquent and accomplished guests often cut across the grain of conventional wisdom and entrenched dogma, no doubt becoming a constant source of irritation and embarrassment for the old guard and crusty gatekeepers who control the news while attempting to program our reality. Thanks to this brave broadcaster, who chose truth over job security, we were able to hear people like Dr. Len Horowitz, whose book “Emerging Viruses, AIDS and EBOLA exposed the genocidal operations of a cabal of petro-chemical/pharmaceutical industrialists. While virtually every major media outlet in Canada, if not the world, was swooning and gushing like teenagers over Barak Obama, Richard asked tough, unpleasant, and very unpopular questions. Alas, some are speculating it may have been Richard’s last series of shows with Phillip J. Berg, the former Deputy Attorney General of Pennsylvania,that cost Richard his job. Berg, an attorney and lifelong Democrat is fighting before the U.S. Supreme Court and a federal Circuit Court to force President Obama to provide a valid birth certificate and thus prove or disprove the growing mountain of compelling evidence that he is not a natural born citizen of the United States and therefore ineligible to occupy The White House.
Then there was Dr. Timothy Ball, retired Canadian climatologist who has the temerity to challenge the mantra of ‘global warming.’ Again it was through Richard’s show we became aware of the globalist scheme to end our sovereignty by merging this great land with the U.S. and Mexico. Where did many, if not most of us learn about the Federal Government’s plan to severely curtail consumers’ access to many natural therapeutic products? Who on Canadian mainstream airwaves has devoted more airtime to exploring alternative energy, suppressed scientific and medical discoveries, and the 60-year government cover-up of UFOs?
Do we simply lie down like sheep and allow this to happen? Or do we finally say, enough is enough and ‘I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not going to take it anymore!’
Fellow truth seekers, let us band together as one, not for Richard’s sake. This is not about preserving a pay-check. This is about preserving our access to truthfulness and openness on the airwaves. I ask you to participate in a rally in support of The Richard Syrett Show in front of Astral Media Radio at 2 St. Clair Avenue, on the northwest corner of Yonge and St. Clair on Monday January 26th between 11:00am and 2pm.
And finally, as you consider whether to attend the rally in support of The Richard Syrett Show, I ask you to remember the words from Matthew 10:26 which Richard used each night to close his show.
“Don’t be afraid of them, for there is nothing covered that will not be revealed; and hidden that will not be known. What I tell you in the darkness, speak in the light; and what you hear whispered in the ear, proclaim on the housetops”.
