And NBC is better than Al Jazeera. Come on, at least give me that..?

That movie trailer has nothing in it that warrants a ban. NBC will play GOP smear ads, but they won’t play a harmless ad about a documentary? Sad.

It’s McCarthyism all over again, only worse.

NBC/CW denies this saying, “The spot was not declined. In fact, we were told they were not going to make a national spot buy on CW.”

If you think NBC is “afraid to disparage the president”, then you clearly don’t ever see or hear Olberman.
