Obama Ignores NBC’s Cease-and-Desist Order

Oct 1, 2008  •  Post A Comment

Senator Barack Obama’s presidential campaign has ignored NBC’s order to cease-and-desist using video and audio of NBC News’s Tom Brokaw and MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann, TVNewser reports. Since the order was issued the campaign has added a disclaimer at the end of the video that says “NBC and MSNBC did not cooperate in the making of this video.” For NBC News that’s not enough. “We have engaged the Obama campaign on the legal front and demanded that they stop using the ad,” NBC News spokeswoman Allison Gollust tells TVNewser. “To date they have not complied. Their response was to put a tagline at the end of the ad. However, that is not good enough, and we continue to demand they cease and desist using this outrageous ad.” YouTube has agreed to pull down the video if the campaign doesn’t oblige.
