Kingdom Holdings Company 'ads' on CNN
What the hell are they advertising?! Why isn't this a payoff! I thought foreign nations werent allowed to contribute to US presidential campaigns!

How can CNN possibly be independent if they take millions in questionable advertising from despotic wahabi fanatics who also funded 911!

3. The same investors own a billion dollars in AOL/Time Warner stock.
They're major stockholders. (Heard on Randi Rhodes yesterday)

4. Randi Rhodes was fuming about this on the radio. I don't get CNN so I
have not seen them, but they own a good portion of the USA (including the pResident and his minions).

7. Randi's got it right
Why do companies who have nothing to sell to the consumer viewers (Lockheed Martin, Haliburton, Archer Daniels Midland, etc) advertise on TV news programs?

To influence the content.

13. Lets do something about it
Take the next five minutes and write CNN and ask them to remove this advertising. Here is the web link: http://www.cnn.com/feedback/forms/form1.html?39

Let them know that you don't want to see these ads on their channel and that you will stop watching until they are pulled.
