Don't Air Citizens United's "Documentary"
Citizens United, the special interest group that ushered in the SuperPAC era of American politics, just released a 30-minute "documentary" about Terry McAuliffe.
Like other "documentaries" Citizens United has produced in the past — including the anti-Obama The Hope and The Change — their new film about Terry is nothing more than a thinly-veiled attack ad designed to con viewers into believing it's presenting an objective take on this election.
But three local television stations are actually going to air the "documentary" as many as 20 times each before the election. That's basically the equivalent of 3,600 free commercials all tearing down Terry McAuliffe and propping up Ken Cuccinelli.
This is a film that does nothing to educate voters about what’s at stake in this election: The real and stark contrast between these two candidates.
Add your name and tell these television stations: I’m asking you to pull this “documentary” from your schedule. Running this film on television is little more than providing free advertising to the Cuccinelli campaign. Sign now!
It’s wrong and unfair for these television stations to air a thinly-veiled attack ad. I’m standing with Terry McAuliffe to help him defeat tea party extremist Ken Cuccinelli this November.
