Linking to a clipSaturday, October 27, 2007 at 6:20 | Posted in Election, Media, Politics, USA | Leave a comment

According to the New York Times Caucus Blog, FOX has forbidden Republican candidates to use video clips of their FOX sponsored debate in their campaign ads. The order was first submitted to Senator John McCain’s campaign but it was later sent to all Republican candidates. At the clip Senator McCain criticizes Hillary Clinton for “pushing a $1 million earmark for a museum commemorating the Woodstock festival in 1969“.
Just because I happened to link to that clip the other day, I had a pretty good idea where I might find it. And yes, there it still is, at the Washington Post web site. All of the Republican candidates jumping on Senator C, including the Woodstock sound bite by McCain.
Now, I wonder if FOX is going to demand the Washington Post to remove the clip from their web site. Nothing would otherwise be easier for McCain and the bunch of them than to link to the Washington Post at their campaign web sites.
