Update 04/24/2009 YouTube evidence that only at liberal leaning CNN is it ok if Bush is portrayed by radical Bush opponent but it isn't when Obama is...pure hypocrisy.-More reason to boycott CNN.
Update 4/16/2009 Many videos from Tax Tea Parties including extra footage of CNN Chicago Tea Party incident!!!-More reason to boycott CNN.
As the king of late night comedy, Jay Leno has few living peers. He is watched and beloved by millions of American viewers, which makes it difficult to understand his support for an organization that seeks to shut down facilities that have as their sole purpose to give a home and guidance to young ladies who find themselves pregnant with nowhere else to go.
On April 29th Jay Leno and his wife are hosting a fundraiser for the Feminist Majority Foundation, a radical pro-abortion group that not only advocates for abortion on demand, but also for the closing of pro-life pregnancy centers.
This month the Feminist Majority Foundation sent an e-mail to its 400 campus affiliates planning a nationwide protest against facilities that dare to offer women alternatives to abortion and the support they need to choose life.
Please let NBC know that is unacceptable and that you will not watch any show that stars Jay Leno until he apologizes to the hundreds of thousands of people who have been helped by pregnancy care centers and the hundreds of thousands of people who staff those centers.
Update 03/24/2009 More reason to boycott CNN and NBC. See CNN listeners come away thinking "embryos aren't fertilized" or so says ex-President Clinton with no correction from Obama's surgeon general bidder... and Did Obama really condemn cloning and who is really restricting the successes in stem cell research? and Obama sponsored a pro-cloning bill in Illinois in 2003?.

CNN Rejects Life-Affirming Obama Ad - 2nd Major Network to Do So

February 20, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - For the past number of weeks an extraordinarily popular, life-affirming ad by Catholicvote.com has been making the rounds on the internet, having been viewed 1.6 million times on Youtube alone. However, the makers of the ad are now reporting that CNN has refused to air the ad on its station, making it the second major network to reject the ad and its positive message.
The ad shows an ultrasound of a baby in a womb, while superimposed text explains that during his life the baby's father will abandon him, and his single mother will struggle to support him. But, "despite the hardships he will endure," the ad continues. "This child will become the 1st African American President." The ad concludes with a picture of President Obama and the slogan, "Life. Imagine the Potential."
Due to its popularity, the ad's makers had originally sought to have it aired during the Super Bowl on NBC. But the ad was rejected, ostensibly because of its "advocacy."
In a letter to supporters, Brian Burch from Catholicvote.com, says that following the NBC rejection, "We contacted CNN, thinking their audience contains precisely the type of people we want to reach. Further, given CNN's track record of running advocacy ads, we were confident we would succeed. Not so."
Burch reports that after several weeks of repeatedly contacting the network, he has received a letter from CNN, reading: "Thank you for your patience. We have decided to pass on this creative. CNN doesn't accept advocacy ads that portray personal decisions in a manner that suggests a position in favor of the advocacy message, without having permission of the persons involved."
Burch, however, says that the excuse is "absurd." In the first place, he observes, the ad does not in any way suggest that President Obama himself is pro-life. He also points out that CNN has in the past accepted ads that have imputed positions to individuals, without their permission.
In 2005 CNN ran an ad sponsored by the pro-abortion activist organization NARAL, that indicated that Judge Roberts "excused" violence against abortion clinics. FactCheck.org called the ad "false" and described that ad like this: "An abortion-rights group is running an attack ad accusing Supreme Court nominee John Roberts of filing legal papers 'supporting ... a convicted clinic bomber' and of having an ideology that 'leads him to excuse violence against other Americans' It shows images of a bombed clinic in Birmingham, Alabama."
Burch observed, "CNN is willing to run ads insinuating that a federal judge supports violent criminal activity, but it won't allow an ad celebrating the potential of all human life, including Barack Obama?"
Burch concluded his letter, saying, "Of course, all is not lost. CNN's refusal will only create more attention for our ad, which has been widely discussed even among abortion groups like NARAL and nationally-syndicated columnist Ellen Goodman. The ad remains a viral hit on the Internet … We have successfully provoked a national conversation about the gift of every human life -- which is why we created the ad to begin with."
