Fired St. Louis Anchor Larry Connors has released another statement to the media and he wants everyone to know that he is not a "tax cheat."

In case you haven't heard or if you still care, Connors was fired from KMOV in St. Louis after he posted on Facebook about his IRS troubles. The post made it seem like the problems came down after he did an interview (that he claims went viral) with President Obama.

Connors did admit on the air that his IRS problems were happening before his interview with Obama. Connors claims that the station dictated his statement to read on air. He also says he was under a "gag order" and could not speak. He said that some viewers labeled him as a "tax cheater."

What Connors did not answer was how he came to owe the IRS so much money that he was on a payment plan. He has yet to answer that question?

Here is a copy of his statement with his signature:
