Inaccurate NARAL Ad to run on CNN

Via Captain's Quarters

CNN has reviewed and agreed to run a controversial ad produced by a pro-abortion group’s that falsely accuses Supreme Court nominee John Roberts of filing legal papers supporting a convicted abortion clinic bomber, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.

The news network has agreed to a $125,000 ad buy from NARAL for a commercial which depicts a bombed out 1998 Birmingham, AL abortion clinic. The Birmingham clinic was bombed seven years after Roberts signed the legal briefing the ad question!


...

NARAL still insists that its advertisement is accurate. However, Factcheck provides a transcript right on its page which it refutes in almost every sentence contained in the ad. Read all of the Factcheck post in order to see just how dishonest NARAL got in its smear campaign.

And CNN now wants to run the ad for NARAL. That tells you how much CNN values their own credibility.

...

he NARAL ad, set to begin airing tomorrow on local channels in Maine and Rhode Island and nationally on the CNN and Fox News cable networks, features Emily Lyons, a clinic director who was badly injured when a bomb exploded at her clinic in Birmingham in 1998.

Shame, shame, shame on Fox News as well. What are they trying to prove -- that they can get as corrupt as CNN?


Just because you run an ad that someone pays you to run isn't going to ruin ones credibility and make you a shill for the left, CNN is already that, but ads are seperate from programming and just because they run the ad doesn't mean that they endorse it as fact.

Would I have run the ad? Probably not, but that doesn't make them corrupt for running it.
