    This is strange ... even MSNBC and CNN have apparently agreed to air the ad.

    A new television ad that is part of a campaign by the Move America Forward organization to counter ex-President Bill Clinton's recent assertions about his administration's efforts to combat Islamic terrorism has been rejected by Fox News.


    "Fox News Channel told Move America Forward that they had decided under no circumstances would they allow the organization to broadcast the ad," Debra Argel Bastian, the group's military outreach coordinator, said.

    I wonder if there was a threat of legal action behind this.

    I suspect Fox is trying to mitigate the perception that they are right leaning. They fancy themselves as being right down the middle.

    You wouldn't know it from the directives they issue to their employees.

    I haven't read these directives, Daisy. Do you have a link to them? I would be curious what they are telling their employees.

    Thanks.

    Media Matters has a synopsis with links to the individual ones it discusses.

    Someone also posted a Youtube link here recently, but I didn't save it.

    I wonder how many memos Media Matters had to go through to get the 33 they could use.:)

    I believe they were contributed by staff and former staff.
