Tuesday, August 31, 2004, I saw what looked like the entire Swift Boat Veterans For Truth Ad, on CNN.
I agree! I'm directing my (unfortunately) meager contributions to them for the time being.
It's definitely the most effective thing we can do right now!
shouldn't that be "stoopid?"
God has indeed blessed you.
You saw an ad that's rolled locally by the cable company. In other markets, viewers saw different ads.
Example: You know when you're watching something on cable and the ad for (Insert name of your local high-profile plaintiff's law firm) comes on? It came from your cable provider. It's called a rotator, and can show up on several cable channels...CNN, FNC, ESPN, among others.
An ad for an attorney in Toledo obviously won't be shown in Topeka.
Although you saw it while watching CNN, it really wasn't 'on' CNN.
same was seen (on CNN, Tuesday AM) in California, too :)
With a touch of French thrown in to add a touch more "European sophistication". Ptooey.
Ok. You say I'm not seeing what I thought I was seeing. (just joking) You say, its a rotator Ad, provided by my cable company. I have satellite. Probably has the rotator Ads, too. But even when I saw the Ad tuesday morn., I considered it may be a slot thing or something. What threw me, was that we'd all heard that the Swifties were running the Ads in only 3 or 4 states. I am in Florida. Thereby, as skerry would put it, I thought Florida would be next or later on the list, money providing, of course. Yeah, time to donate to the Swifties.
One of the talking heads on one of the 3 stations I was flipping between, this am, --no, it was later in the afternoon, said to a question posed to him by another head, "no, that's a stand-in, for him....."
I dont care if it was kerry or not, he did throw his medals at the whitehouse, I have, seen a photo of that.
The TV ads are necessarily short, and they are nothing more than appetizers for the book. There's no escape from the book, and as the paleomedia is forced to investigate this story, Jean Fraude will be sunk.
