ABC Says No To Gore’s Ad

ABC was the top-rated network last night during the presidential debate, making it the #1 network for both presidential debates and the VP debate according to our brother blog, TVNewser.

Awesome, except that one the other end, ABC may be losing some viewers due to their decision to refuse to wrong Al Gore’s Alliance for Climate Protection’s Repower America during the debates. In fact, a digital campaign asking for folks to sign up in an attempt to peer-pressure the network to run the spot. As of right now, 130,069 people have signed on.

This just looks so bad for ABC. They aired a Chevron ad during the presidential debates, why not a green one?
