    I'm all for the cause but broadcasters will drop stuff presented this way. You say satire, they say misleading. It would be like the DNC doing an ad like "We here at the RNC hate old people, that's right we are jerks." and expect ABC and the rest to run it. That's nuts.  And what does "supposed to be broadcast" mean? Was that just what the producers are telling us, or was it accepted and then rejected after the Exxon letter? The former I'm sure. Great for online release, and that was all it was intended for. All this story of expected play on traditional media is just a play for more bounce. And the clever people might even get a few like MSNBC to play it now as a news story (banned!). Win! But just realize what is going down folks.
