Utah Station Says No to Antiwar Ad

From Associated Press

A Utah television station is refusing to air an antiwar ad featuring Cindy Sheehan, whose son’s death in Iraq prompted her vigil outside President Bush’s Texas ranch.

The ad began airing on other area stations Saturday, the first day of the national convention here of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, which Bush has been invited to address.

But a national sales representative for ABC affiliate KTVX rejected the ad in an e-mail to media buyers, calling it an “inappropriate commercial advertisement for Salt Lake City.”
