ABC refuses to run We Campaign ad

Blog ››› ››› JAMISON FOSER

ABC is refusing to air an Alliance for Climate Protection ad criticizing "big oil" for "spending hundreds of millions of dollars" on lobbyists and ads to "block clean energy."

I wonder how much of that ad money has gone to ABC?

More than 100,000 people have already sent a message urging ABC to air the ad.

UPDATE: Apparently this is ABC's excuse for not running the ad:

"Per our Guidelines, national buildings may be used in advertising provided the depictions are incidental to the advertiser's promotion of the product or service. Given the messages and themes of this commercial, the image of the Capital building is not incidental to this advertising. Please replace the image with one that is not of another national building or monument."

"Not incidental"? The ad is 30 seconds long. The Capital building is on-screen for less than two of those seconds.
