Freedom's Watch Complains to NBC About Ad Denial

Network Rejected Ad Due to URL Linking to Conservative Policy Lobby's Web Site

Conservative policy lobby Freedom’s Watch wrote NBC to complain about the network’s decision not to run a series of ads thanking the troops and asking others to do the same.

NBC said it rejected the adds because of a URL that linked to the group’s Web site, which the network said turned it into an issue ad.
