NBC Reverses Course

Had it not been for the pressure generated by Glenn Reynolds and others in New Media, NBC's rather embarrassing reversal on its original refusal to run ads by Freedom's Watch would probably never have happened. But better late than never:

NBC UPDATE: "NBC reversed course Saturday and decided to air a conservative group's television ad thanking U.S. troops."

For NBC, a PR disaster. For Freedom's Watch, a PR coup, getting far more publicity than they would have gotten if NBC had just aired the -- rather innocuous -- ads.

Meanwhile it is now coming out that the NBC lawyer who nixed the ad in the first place has donated at least $45,000 to Democrats recently. This not only points to conflict of interest, it also illustrates that Democrat "support" of the troops is--as we say in Texas--'all hat and no cattle'.

Dennis Miller asked listeners to imagine the other day a Christmas card from Reid/Pelosi to a soldier fighting in Iraq or Afghanistan: "Dear Sgt. Doe: We support you, but not your mission. Merry Christmas. Harry Reid." The irony and absurdity of that prospect says it all.
