Thanks to Mary at Tensegrities for alerting me to this story about big media and big oil. ABC refused to run this television spot from We Can Solve the Climate Crisis. ABC has no problem continuing to run ads from oil companies. Why isn’t one group’s money as good as the other’s for buying advertizing? Especially when constant advertising from oil companies is part of the problem – it’s misleading and it keeps people misinformed and keeps them thinking that fossil fuel isn’t all that bad.
Now that you’ve seen the ad, please take a moment to write ABC and let them know that you think it’s nuts that big oil gets to buy gobs of advertising but that they won’t sell one ad that talks about the real deal about big oil and clean energy.
