In an unusual break from its competitors, KSTP-TV refused to air a controversial ad defending U.S. policy in Iraq that the station says unfairly claimed the media is misleading people about the lack of progress in the war.
ABC affiliate KSTP, Channel 5, declined to air the 60-second ad, which features images of smoke pouring from the World Trade Center and testimonials from soldiers who talk of the value of fighting terrorists in Iraq rather than at home. Some in the ad, produced by the conservative advocacy group Progress for America Voter Fund, also complain that the media only report bad news about the war.

Even though many may or may not agree with the war in Iraq, I think we are borderlining censorship & freedom of speech. Granted, a TV station has no responsibility to air an advertisement that it does not like, but this sure smacks of censorship. If one reads the entire story, there are other people/ groups that have used their political power or "clout" to get other ads removed.
