If you produce a tasteful ad and try to buy time to air it, what could prevent that?

A network with an agenda that they don’t see reflected in your ad.

CNN has rejected an uplifting and positive ad focusing
on the historic inauguration of Barack Obama, submitted for the State
of the Union Address on Feb. 24.

CNN claims the ad “suggests a position in favor of the advocacy message, without having permission of the persons involved.”

Burch reacted to CNN’s claims: “This is absurd. Our ad does not
suggest that Barack Obama is pro-life. Instead, we make the obvious
point that Obama’s mother gave birth to a child that ultimately became
the 1st African American President. This is a fact, not an opinion.”

CNN joins NBC now in rejecting the facts in a well-done video.

Here’s the ad.
