I know that reading this might make some of you laugh and do a really good spit take.  No tv station could be that stupid but follow the orange dreidel for more.

I am in the DC area and WUSA 9 is the local CBS station and look at what they are showing as a commercial. This is from a screenshot while watching a saved episode of several shows saved on the DVR

YES YOUR EYES ARE NOT LYING TO YOU!

Now upon seeing this one would think this is a drastic attempt for ratings but look closer at who this ad is courtesy of you will sense that their is more to this than meets the eye.

It seems the 1% will not quit to stop from getting what they want.  Be on the look out for these in your area.  I will send a note to the station to express my frustration with this scare tactic.  Will send you an update if I get  a response.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
