Thank The Troops…

…but only if it’s paid for by politically neutral entities.

From the Associated Press:

WASHINGTON (AP)–NBC reversed course Saturday and decided to run a conservative group’s television ad thanking U.S. troops.
The ad, by the group click here.

So, until this change in policy, NBC was more concerned about the political posture of the organization placing the ad than they were about the content of the ad? Interesting.

I applaud NBC’s review and revision of their policy. I thank Freedom’s Watch for spending the money to recognize military service personnel and their families. I think it’s bullshit that recognition of military service personnel ever takes a back seat to politics.
