NBC Decides to Air "Controversial’ Ad Thanking Troops; Lt. Col. Steve Russell Featured

NBC originally refused to air the above commercial yesterday on their Meet the Press program with Tim Russert. NBC said that airing the spot would violate the network’s prohibition on “controversial issue ads.” How sad. The war has been so politicized, that now it is deemed “controversial” to ask Americans to thank our brave soldiers who are serving thousands of miles away during the Christmas season?” From the freedomswork.org website:

“As we celebrate the holidays, it is important to remember the sacrifices these brave men and women stationed throughout the world make each day to defend our freedom. Freedom’s Watch is honored to support their services and say thank you.”
