CBS Affiliate Will Not Air Sheehan Ad Because There Is “No Proof” Of Absence Of WMD In Iraq... | The Huffington Post

Boise, Idaho affiliates CBS and FOX have refused to air a television ad in which Cindy Sheehan asks President Bush questions about the Iraq war.

Sheehan “claims the President lied about, among other things, the presence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq,” said Jeff Anderson the Vice President of sales at Fisher Broadcasting Inc., which owns KBCI (CBS). “There is no proof that we are aware of regarding the truthfulness of her claim. We require proof of claims such as this. Until that is provided, our station will not carry this ad.”

Jeff Anderson of Fisher Broadcasting Inc. wants proof before he'll run the ad? just what does he want? because I can give it to him. seriously. he needs to be made to give a catalog of EXACTLY what he needs, because it is so widely known, accepted, and proven that he could have that 'proof' in hand in a matter of hours.

I called Mr. Anderson [(208) 472-2222 if you'd like to offer the same assistance] and he's left for the day. I left him a messageand asked him what "proof" was needed, as in what criteria or TYPE of info he needed so that we could get this ad running. I left my number. lets see if he calls back.
