A link to infowars.com is circulating the Internet carrying the message that major networks have refused to air a commercial produced by a nonprofit that strives to eliminate waste, mismanagement and inefficiency in the federal government.
Citizens Against Government Waste was founded in 1984 by the late industrialist J. Peter Grace and syndicated columnist Jack Anderson. CAGW is notable for its "pig book" that details pork-barrel spending.
Now, infowars.com says the group has produced a video.
A new television ad about the U.S. national debt produced by Citizens Against Government Waste has been deemed “too controversial” by major networks including ABC, A&E and The History Channel and will not be shown on those channels. The commercial is a homage to a 1986 ad that was entitled “The Deficit Trials” that was also banned by the major networks. Apparently telling the truth about the national debt is a little too “hot” for the major networks to handle. But perhaps it is time to tell the American people the truth. In 1986, the U.S. national debt was around 2 trillion dollars. Today, it is rapidly approaching 14 trillion dollars. The American Dream is being ripped apart right in front of our eyes, but apparently some of the major networks don’t want the American people to really understand what is going on.
Here it is. Only one minute long.
