So they won't sell time for advertising a "partisan" issue, but they will surely devote an entire hour of President Obama hyping up his bullshit plan?! Fuck off with that bullshit!

Exactly.

Morris, a onetime advisor to former President Bill Clinton, said he was particularly troubled by ABC's decision not to air the spot.

"It's the ultimate act of chutzpah because ABC is the network that turned itself over completely to Obama for a daylong propaganda fest about health care reform," he said. "For them to be pious and say they will not accept advertising on health care shuts their viewers out from any possible understanding of both sides of this issue."


Had to look up chuzpah.

chuzpah = to describe someone who has over-stepped the boundaries of accepted behavior with no shame.

Yep. that pretty much sums it up.

Did either of you look at the people that made the ad. The American legion of Voters executives are either working at Fox news or have at one time. This is simply a ploy by Fox news to make some headlines against rivial networks. If you read the article you posted you would know this too, but I guess only reading headlines is good enough. And what do you think would happen if a pro universal healthcare ad tried to get on Fox.

You can't even get the name of the group right and you expect the rest of your post to hold any merit?

And just for the record, I'm not seeing anything about Fox in Bob Adams, the Executive Director of League of American Voters, other than him being a contributer to television programs on both Fox and MSNBC.

From the League of American Voters website, that is the first person I pulled up, and since your bullshit statement has been flushed down the toilet, the only one I am going to look up.
