Sean Hannity blew his chance

I was hoping that when he had a segment on his show Hannity's America tonight, about Superbowl commercials that he would mention the one that NBC banned, that at www.CatholicVote.org but instead he showed the overtly sexual PETA commercial, giving them free airtime.
I thought you were pro-life Sean! You had a great opportunity to be boldly pro-life, but only EWTN has the guts to show this video. Banned from NBC and YouTube.
BREAKING NEWS:

EWTN Picks Up the Ball NBC Dropped in Refusing to

Air Pro-life Commercial During Super Bowl



Irondale, AL (EWTN) – See the pro-life commercial NBC refused to air during the Super Bowl on EWTN Global Catholic Network this Sunday Feb. 1, beginning at 5:30 p.m. ET and continuing through midnight ET.

The commercial, sponsored by Fidelis and catholicvote.com, centers around the theme: “Life: Imagine the Potential.” It will begin airing during “Faith Bowl II,” an annual Family Theatre made-for-television special, which analyzes the role that the Catholic/Christian Faith plays in professional and collegiate sports. This year, Major League Baseball’s Mark Loretta of the Los Angeles Dodgers will guest along with former professional soccer player Antonio Soave.

The commercials will continue throughout EWTN’s Sunday evening lineup, including the shows with popular series Hosts Father Benedict Groeschel and Father John Corapi, and will conclude at midnight ET.

EWTN also aired this powerful commercial several times during its extensive coverage of the March for Life; an event which has been boycotted by virtually every mainstream media outlet in the country, despite the fact that every year it is Washington, D.C.’s largest march.

The commercial can also be viewed on EWTN’s pro-life webpage, www.ewtn.com/prolife, after 6 p.m. Friday, Jan. 30, and, of course, on www.catholicvote.com.

What follows are the words that flash across the screen over a picture of an ultrasound during the must-see pro-life commercial: “This child’s future is a broken home, he will be abandoned by his father, his single mother will struggle to raise him, despite the hardships he will endure, this child will become the 1st African-American president. Life, imagine the potential.”

EWTN Global Catholic Network, in its 28th year, is available in over 148 million television households in more than 140 countries and territories. With its direct broadcast satellite television and radio services, AM & FM radio networks, worldwide short-wave radio station, Internet website www.ewtn.com and publishing arm, EWTN, is the largest religious media network in the world.

Hi Leticia,

You may have missed it, but while Sean definitely dropped the ball on this, Bill O'Reilly DID play it several times durning a segment about this ad and the PETA one.

Regards,
Jenny

Thanks, Jenny, for that good news! My husband said that Sean played the abortion commercial the night before. I just wish it was mentioned in the segment where the PETA commercial was shown.
One of the comentators brought up a good point; PETA is saving a LOT of money by having their commercial rejected by NBC but shown by Sean, etc anyway.
By extension, so is Catholic Vote.org.
Cool.

Ahh, I was just coming to tell you that O'Reilly played it. I don't even watch him (or anyone on Fox) anymore, but I think it was great that he did that.

I for one was disgusted that NBC not only pulled this commercial, but ran one not 10 minutes into the game for the soon to be released anti-Catholic movie sequel to 'The DaVinci Code'; "Angels and Demons". I wrote an article on my blog and I haven't even started to get on NBC's case yet.
