Media Matters Ad Will Not Be Aired On CNN

The anti-Lou Dobbs and birther movement ad that Media Matters had planned to run on CNN will not be aired.  The ad will still be shown on MSNBC and Fox News but it looses a lot of its punch if its not actually on during Lou Dobb’s show. This certainly doesn’t silence the opposition to the birther movement but it is still very significant that the cable providers chose not the air the ad on CNN.  There was a fair amount of publicity for the ad prior to its release so even if it had not made it on to any channels, people would still have been exposed to its message.
