Greta Van Susteren tonight took on the media for its lack of reporting on the American Marine veteran who has been held in Iran’s worst prison for more than three years.

Last night, Montel Williams went “On The Record” to ask the public to help raise awareness for Amir Hekmati, the jailed veteran.

“We should all be standing by and with Montel, helping him. Where is everyone?” Van Susteren asked.

The “On The Record” host noted that the media is powerful. She warned that if the spotlight isn’t placed on Hekmati and jailed Pastor Saeed Abedini, they’ll be forgotten.

“P.S., if I were in trouble, I would want Montel watching my back,” Van Susteren said. “How ‘bout you?”
