FOX won’t accept this ad from the Palm Center, with which they hope to influence debate next week when the Pentagon report on DADT repeal is released and the Senate Armed Services Committee holds hearings.
Voiceover: As the millitary prepares to end “don’t ask, don’t tell”, our NATO allies have told us what to expect… Business as usual.
Major General Semianiw: “There is no negative impact of having men and women of any sexual orientation fighting together, be it in Afghanistan, be it in Iraq.”
Major General Simon VL Willis (ret): “The lifting of the homosexual ban was a bit like Y2K. It was a non-event, and it continues to be a non-event.”
Palm Center Director Aaron Belkin stated: “I am surprised that Fox News would reject an ad featuring allied Generals, given that host Bill O’Reilly and guest contributor Liz Cheney have both expressed support for open gay service. This is an important time for input from all sides on this issue, and I hope Fox will reconsider.”
The FOX reality simply cannot brook intelligent discussion on any issue, especially one about supporting our troops in wartime.
