CBS/Infinity Radio has refused to air paid commercial announcements for an upcoming non-partisan symposium on terrorism, claiming "people might be too emotionally affected" by it.

"CBS/Infinity Radio joins Sinclair Broadcasting in refusing to air fact-based content about issues important to the country," said David Masak, the media production director for Peoples Truth Forum's symposium. "The facts of the threat we face might be disturbing, but that's the truth of the matter. Why CBS/Infinity wouldn't want to take this opportunity to share the facts with the American people, especially in light of the recent bombings in London, says a lot about CBS."

Or maybe is says more about the People's Truth Forum?

I don't know about you, but this set my BS Detector off, and I suspect CBS told the group to shove it when they found out the president of the People's Truth Forum was also the guy behind the bogus, muck-raking media bile, "Vietnam Vets For Truth" which was a wannabe "Swift Boat Veterans For Truth" PAC which manufactured a plethora of lies during the last presidential campaign, including allegations comparing Kerry to Nazi collaborators and the erroneous claim Kerry is considered a Communist hero to the North Vietnamese and helped them achieve victory.

With all due respect, this does seem inappropriate, but equally inappropriate is any organization that has "people's truth" in the name. I suspect this non-partisian group may have an interest in painting the palestinians and their kind as evil, while conveniently ignoring any faux pas of other entities *cough* Israel *cough* in the middle east. It's just a coincedence that the People's Truth Forum seems to be mostly composed of Jews & Christians, and seems to be hell-bent to convince everyone that Islam will destroy the world.

Now correct me if I'm wrong.. that's my initial impression...

And from the PTF web site itself:
Jeffrey M. Epstein, our president, accumulated over thirty years experience in mortgage banking, real estate, marketing, advertising and business management. During the Presidential Campaign of 2004, Jeffrey served as the media relations director for a "527" PAC (Political Action Committee).

Our president de truth is a mortgage banker. Well that certain qualifies him as an expert in Middle East cultures (as well as spamming).

Interesting that this truthful web site conveniently doesn't say what PAC Mr. Epstein served in. If his efforts were so honorable, why not mention it? I'm sure the fact that this PAC is the Viet Nam Vets For Truth would have no bearing on his credibility or capability to publish accurate information... This is the group that had some vets calling Kerry a hero years ago, and then changing their $tory after joining Epstein's "truth" club.

Here's another choice quote from the president of People's Truth Forum:
"The Vietnamese communists clearly recognize John Kerry's contributions to their victory," he said. "This find can be compared to the discovery of a painting of Neville Chamberlain hanging in a place of honor in Hitler's Eagle's Nest in 1945."
