TV Station Pulls Political Ad

Read the CT Mirror story about WTIC-TV’s decision to stop airing one of two commercials that the American Action Network has been running against Congressman Chris Murphy. Murphy, a Democrat, is in a close race with  Republican Sam Caligiuri.
In a statement released by FoxCT, the station says that after reviewing documentation provided by American Action Network it “believes the commercial’s claims are unsubstantiated and has removed it from the air.”
We assume the state’s others TV stations are still running the ad?

  1. Eureka! I think this is either the first or second time I can think of where a station has either refused to air and ad with unsubstantiated material or pulled it once on the air. In a perfect world it should have never made it to air, but at least WTIC took the step of pulling it. Credit where credit is due.
