Several Fox television stations and one ABC affiliate in key battleground states are running a Republican front group's anti-Obama propaganda as paid programming in the final days leading up to the election.
The National Republican Trust PAC, run by conservative conspiracy theorist Scott Wheeler, has purchased airtime in Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Iowa, Wisconsin, and North Carolina to broadcast its 25-minute "Breaking Point" political attack ad, starting Oct 29. Using clips from Townhall.com, World Net Daily, Fox Business, CNSNews.com, and Glenn Beck, narrator E. W. Jackson invokes the boogeymen of ACORN, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, the New Black Panther Party, Hamas, and Mao Tse-Tung to paint President Obama and the Democratic Party as "extreme," "treacherous," "socialist," and "with hostility" towards America.
