NBC Reverses Course
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.
