RNC tells TV stations not to run anti-Bush ads GOP committee says MoveOn.org's spots are illegally financed Sunday, March 7, 2004 Posted: 12:07 AM EST (0507 GMT) One of the ads in question, called "Child's Play," ends with the tag line, "Guess who's going to pay off President Bush's $1 trillion deficit?" WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The Republican National Committee is warning television stations across the country not to run ads from the MoveOn.org Voter Fund that criticize President Bush, charging that the left-leaning political group is paying for them with money raised in violation of the new campaign-finance law. "As a broadcaster licensed by the Federal Communications Commission, you have a responsibility to the viewing public, and to your licensing agency, to refrain from complicity in any illegal activity," said the RNC's chief counsel, Jill Holtzman Vogel, in a letter sent to about 250 stations Friday. "Now that you have been apprised of the law, to prevent further violations of federal law, we urge you to remove these advertisements from your station's broadcast rotation" . . . http://www.cnn.com/2004/ALLPOLITICS/03/07/moveon.ads/index.html Yes, the RNC gets to say who advertises, what your views will be, who can raise money. Yes, democracy is alive and well in America!
