Apparently, if you want to run an ad on NBC supporting & thanking our troops, your organization had better be one of the ones that aligns itself with NBC’s political agenda:
NBC has nixed holiday advertisements meant to thank troops for serving overseas in opposition to the inclusion of a non-profit’s Web address.
The ads, paid for by the non-profit Freedom’s Watch, are a simple thank you, the group says, with people shown paying gratitude to members of the military and the final frame showing the group’s Web address, www.freedomswatch.org.
I would say that I’d stop watching NBC, but then again they’d have to have programming interesting enough for me to watch in the first place.

Since NBC’s web site has a byzantine contact system, no easily available phone number, and no easy-to-get-to email address, drop a line to your local NBC affiliate. Or, if you happen to have NBC president John Eck’s personal email address, phone number, or fax number, post it in the comments.
