A one-minute advertisement urging viewers to protest a mosque being built near Ground Zero in New York has been rejected by NBC and CBS, reports James Hibberd in the Hollywood Reporter.
The ad, which some critics have said is inflammatory, includes copy such as: "To celebrate that murder of 3,000 Americans, they want to build a monstrous 13-story mosque at Ground Zero," the story says. The commercial also calls the mosque "a monument to their victory." But NBC said it rejected the ad not because of its content because of the "vague construction of its narration," Hibberd writes.
ABC and Fox representatives said they didn’t know whether the ad had been submitted tot heir networks.
