+ - Google TV censors political ads->

Jewfro_Macabbi writes: Last week, the Jill Stein for President campaign placed over a hundred thousand dollars worth of airtime on cable TV nationally and in select markets across the country. The ads were scheduled to air September 4th through September 6th. Yesterday Google, which served as a broker for national satellite and cable television ad placements, informed Jill Stein's campaign that they were censoring the campaign's ads due to "inappropriate language." (The ads in question can be viewed here: http://www.jillstein.org/first_tv_ad_campaign).

The ads comply with FCC regulations regarding appropriate content, and federal law prohibits broadcasters from censoring ads submitted by candidates for public office.
