ABC has decided to stay on the good side of Big Oil by refusing to air the latest ad from Al Gore’s WE Campaign promoting the use of renewable energy in America. The network, which has no problem promoting Chevron, flat out denied the We Can Solve It organization from running the Repower America ad during the debates last night; even though the funds were available.
Even more bizarre — the network has stonewalled WE CEO Cathy Zoi on an answer for the refusal. In response, the organization is asking that people sign a petition on their website, send a letter, and ask that ABC reconsider their position so that the ad airs this Friday during 20/20.
Check out the ad below — as far as I can tell, there’s absolutely no reason why it shouldn’t hit the small screen.
