Taking the long way to intelligence

Posted on Fri, Oct 27, 2006 at 9:19 AM

Both NBC and The CW have refused to air ads for Barbara Kopple and Cecilia Peck's dope new documentary Dixie Chicks: Shut Up and Sing, which opened on the coasts this week and hits Halifax on November 10.

NBC, according to the Drudge Report, passed because the spots "are disparaging to President Bush.” And The CW, home of the new and depreciated Gilmore Girls and Veronica Mars, two shows about outspoken, politically aware women, claimed it does “not have appropriate programming in which to schedule this spot.”

I have no words.

Except these ones from Toronto.

Watch the trailer for Shut Up and Sing here.
