California ABC affiliate refuses to air ad promoting same-sex marriage.

During the inauguration yesterday, Los Angeles ABC affiliate K-ABC refused to air an ad from GetToKnowUsFirst.org expressing the message, Marriage promotes families. Support marriage equality. The station claimed that the ads content was too controversial many families will be watching. The rejected ad features two black men raising five children.

Watch it at link~

The ad did play on CNN, ABCs Good Morning America, NBCs Today Show, and even Fox News.

1. ABC "affiliate" my Aunt Fanny. That is an ABC *owned and operated* station.
Take your outrage directly to ABC HQ on W. 66th St. in NYC. :grr:

3. FCC regulation should be addressed immediately by Obama.
The media is a biased, on-message, RW assault on facts. Until we deconsolidate and sanction all forms of political and other discrimination, Obama will be fighting an uphill battle. BushCo knew it and they used it early and often.
