I just received the following e-mail from John F. Lansing, President, Scripps Networks...
"Thank you for taking the time to contact us and to express your concern. The situation involving the Colorado Springs Boy Scout Troop and Food Network's Iron Chef America promotion is an unfortunate misunderstanding on the part of a front-line producer. Food Network has no programming policy that would prohibit inclusion of the Boys Scouts of America in the stories we tell online or on the air. We are in the process of contacting Mr. Maher, Scoutmaster of Troop 99, to let him know that his submission - one of more than 1,500 we have received - has been selected for taping for use on our website and on Food Network. We apologize for this misunderstanding.
John F. Lansing
President, Scripps Networks "
