As Twitchy has been reporting all evening, this Salon.com piece by David Masciorata titled, “You don’t protect my freedom: Our childish insistence on calling soldiers heroes deadens real democracy” is angering many on Twitter, including Montel Williams:

Editor’s note: See update below for clarification as to Walsh’s title at Salon.

Yes. It’s time to either a) defend this piece or b) apologize and move on.

Update:

Walsh corrected Williams’ assertion that she is the editor of Salon:

The staff directory at Salon lists Walsh as “Editor at Large.” The “Editor in Chief” is David Daley.
