Anti-DeLay ad not airing in Houston

The anti-DeLay ad produced by several liberal groups is not airing in Houston. All four of the local network affiliates and Time Warner cable have decided either: 1) to not run the ad, or 2) to review the ad further.

I'm not particularly surprised. The line in the ad about Russian tycoons wasn't true or even close enough for attack ads.

It'll be interesting to see whether the left-wing groups choose to edit the ad, or whether they'll be happy with the free media publicity that they gained from announcing the ad.

EDIT: The ad, in WMV format.

UPDATE: Three of the four have chosen not to run the ad. One is still reviewing the ad.
