More Media Shenanigans: Delaware TV Station 'Forgets' to Broadcast O'Donnell 30 Minute Ads
Monday, November 1, 2010 | Kristinn

Posted on 11/01/2010 7:40:03 AM PDT by kristinn

The Christine O'Donnell campaign bought three thirty minute blocks of time on Delaware TV channel 28 to broadcast an infomercial on her candidacy the last two days before Tuesday's election.

Last night's scheduled 11:30 broadcast failed to happen. This morning, the scheduled 10:00 broadcast also failed to happen.

The O'Donnell campaign just Tweeted about the incidents:

This isn't our show either! We are told channel 28 "forgot" to air it...both times... even though we paid for the time slot last week.
4 minutes ago via txt

The infomercial, entitled We the People, was posted this morning to O'Donnell's campaign website and can be viewed here.

The next scheduled broadcast is for 3:00 p.m. today.

How brazen can they get? Are they getting more money from Coons to not broadcast O’Donnell’s ads.

The FCC should be looking into this and pull their license!

Oooooooooops - just forget it;(

How, exactly, does one “forget”, not once, but TWICE, that you have been paid a large sum of money to provide a service for which you have already been paid?..................

Political ads are usually PRE-PAID. The TV station owes C.O. a check for what she paid.

Actually, if 1000 people filed complaints against the station to the FCC and asked that the complaints be put into stations re-licensing file for its next FCC re-licensing review, the station might understand that level of anger out there by the public.

I also think that it is time for stations that are “PBS” stations to be challenged in their FCC review and potential be replaced by independent station that do not carry the leftist-Propaganda Bull S#*~% programming.

If rational people can re-take government, it will be time to retake the airwaves or at least allow the liberal biased media know that there time is numbered.

This country has fallen a long way... we’re quickly approaching third-world status when media intentionally (forgot, my ass) blocks a candidate from broadcasting a campaign ad. This is the type of sh*t that happens in Venezuela.

Right. Anyone have a phone number? It’s time to start demanding the programming be made up today - 3 1/2 hour slots TODAY.

As one who has been working in television for over 20 years I can confidently say that this was not a mistake. A client buys time - whether its a 30 second commercial or 30 minute info-mercial. A contract is signed, and the fees paid. The sales person writes up the work order, the programming department schedules it, the traffic department places it and the operations department puts it on the air.

If someone “conveniently” forgot - they should be fired and the campaign should be “comped” at least one run of the show before tomorrow.

I'm sure the Obama regime will be all over this with their usual enthusiasm for equal protection under the law. Just as a refund after the election is over is useless, an investigation by a corrupt organization will accomplish nothing. What we need is for this to go viral and fire up real Americans who still value fair play. I'll be in DE tomorrow getting the vote out for America, and I hope I'll have a lot of company there, in WVa, in CA, WA, CO, and everywhere else that we have a chance of taking back our country from this sort of person. This is about good and evil, and the Dems must be removed from power over our lives.

This is more than a sign of dishonesty and fraud on the station’s part. I don’t think you hide a message from someone you regard as a “kook” at risk of your license. I THINK THEY’RE AFRAID SHE COULD WIN! And she just very well might.

KSFO the very conservative Bay Area SF station has to accept lib commercials. The drive time talk show I listen to always explains just after one of them airs that they are REQUIRED BY LAW to accept political ads... So the fear of “kookdom” (read honest rational citizenry) contaminating them can be gotten around if that was their problem.

Wow, I see that - it is a 6 minute ad on their dumb website - like that’s going to have the same impact as a 1/2 TV broadcast bought and paid for. I called and demanded they air that special three times today and tomorrow.
