ABC Rejects Gore Ad

Oct 10, 2008  •  Post A Comment

ABC is refusing to run an ad from Al Gore’s We Campaign that attacks oil companies for spending hundreds of millions lobbying and advertising to block clean energy, Advertising Age reports. The We Campaign asked ABC to run its “Repower America” ad during “20/20” on Sept. 26 but a day after Al Gore called for “civil disobedience” to stop construction of new oil plants at a global conference, the network refused to air the spot. ABC told AdAge it refused to air the ad based on its policy on controversial issue ads.
