Letter from Robert F. Bauer, General Counsel, Obama for America
September 23, 2008
Re: NRA Advertisement
Dear Station Manager:
As General Counsel to Obama for America, I write about an advertisement sponsored by the National Rifle Association (“NRA”) that may be airing on your station. The text of the advertisement, and a thorough explanation of its falsity, is attached.
This advertisement knowlingly misleads your viewing audience about Senator Obama’s position on the Second Amendment. In an article published today, the Washington Post fact-checks this advertisement and awards it three “Pinocchios,” meaning: “Significant factual error and/or obvious contradictions.” For the sake of both FCC licensing requirements and the public interest, your station should refuse to continue to air this advertisement.

There has been too much political warfare, non-military PSYOP, propaganda, counterpropaganda, CNA, Old Media bias, New Media pushback, for me to blog on it all. This is not intended to be a political blog. It’s supposed to be a blog about Information Operations, Psychological Operations, Morale Operations, propaganda, counterpropaganda, media bias, and maintaining popular support for The Long War. But the political war in my homeland has elements of all those aspects.
I’m a bitter clinger. I’m clinging even more bitterly now. So are my pards in Pennsylvania, Ohio and Michigan.
The NRA has lawyers, too. Obama seeks to take down NRA ad This one below.
