Olbermann, Brokaw Heard in Obama Ad

Sep 29, 2008  •  Post A Comment

NBC News’ Tom Brokaw and MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann both are heard in the latest ad for Sen. Barack Obama’s campaign’s Web site VoteForChange.com, TVNewser reports. In the ad, which is aimed at getting supporters to register and turn out to vote, both newsmen can be heard anchoring a mock election, with Olbermann announcing Sen. John McCain as the new president. NBC has since sent a cease-and-desist letter to the campaign in regards to the ad, TVNewser says.

  1. It really depends on how this plays out. If Keith Olberman and Tom Brokaw consented to do the ads, or allow the contents to be used, then they should play and NBC should back off. If there was no permission granted by the journalists, then I agree the ads should be pulled,
