Twisted Logic: Iowa TV stations refuse to run ad attacking pro-cruelty Rep. Steve King
Yes, you read that correctly. Iowa TV stations are refusing to run ads attacking pro-cruelty Rep. Steve, who has been fighting legislation that protects animals from cruelty. He even recently went so far as to slam efforts to make it a federal crime to bring kids to a dog fight.
But you are not going to believe the excuse eight Iowa TV stations are giving for not running the ads, produced by the Humane Society Legislative Fund.
Citadel Communications, a group that owns KCAU and WOI, released a statement Monday calling the ad – “patently false.”
Are you kidding me? Are you serious? Are you living in an alternate universe? Do you realize what you’re saying? – With all of the political ads spinning through the airways and cables, with falsehoods being the norm, you have the nerve to suggest “false” is your cutoff standard.
The eight stations should be called out for backing King’s position on protecting those who engage in dog fighting. And most importantly, we need to note to that the ad is factually accurate. The stations are actually folding to those who support King and in the case of Citadel Communications, the company is actually using a falsehood to defend its decision.
The company is lying about the truthfulness of the anti-King ad. So based on its take on falsehoods, maybe it should no longer run any ads promoting its stations.
Here’s the ad, which contains no false statements.
