America’s faux democracy

Cindy Sheehan has filmed an advertisement that accuses George W. Bush of lying about WMD and the Iraq war. She “claims the President lied about, among other things, the presence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq,” says 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.”

Press freedom is alive and well in the US of A.

Watch the ad here.

UPDATE: Pat Robertson continues his contribution to tolerant debate.
