NBC reported to have blocked Chelsea Clinton’s gay ‘marriage’ ad
Washington, DC, November 27, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) —Internet news site BuzzFeed is reporting that NBC News blocked homosexual activists in Washington State from using a video featuring Chelsea Clinton urging voters to support a state-wide referendum on same-sex “marriage.”
BuzzFeed reports that its sources say that Clinton, who works as a ‘special correspondent’ for NBC, filmed the ad for a pro-gay-marriage group in Washington, along with a second video for another group. But according to BuzzFeed’s sources, NBC “scuttled” the campaign.
Previously, the New York Post had reported that Clinton’s contract with NBC prevented her from participating in any campaigning.
Clinton has been an outspoken supporter of same-sex “marriage” in the past. She supported efforts to legally redefine marriage in New York, making a public appearance at a phone-banking effort in Manhattan before the state legislature passed the bill in June 2011.
In the video ads, which were apparently intended for widespread internet sharing, not television broadcast, Clinton is reported to have described her belief that “everyone should have the freedom to marry.” She discussed the importance of four different statewide ballot measures concerning same-sex “marriage,” and stated that success in the states voting on the issue would send a message to rest of the country.
All four state efforts were victories for the homosexual lobby even without Clinton’s help. Voters in Washington, Maryland and Maine voted to allow gay nuptials, and voters in Minnesota rejected a constitutional amendment to ban same-sex couples from marrying, although state law still technically prohibits the practice.
