Tom Brokaw anchors a mock election night broadcast and Keith Olbermann‘s voice can be heard announcing Sen. John McCain as the next President of the United States in a new ad from the campaign of Sen. Barack Obama.
The YouTube video, titled, “Bad News,” is a promotion for the site VoteForChange.com. The point of the mock election night special report warns of a McCain victory if voter turnout is low.
Earlier this month, FNC sent a cease-and-desist to the McCain campaign for using a Major Garrett report in a Web ad and CBS had a McCain ad removed from YouTube after Katie Couric‘s comments were used. The ad is still up on the Obama YouTube channel.
> Update: TVNewser received an email from NBC just before 2pmET today informing us they have sent a cease-and-desist letter to the Obama campaign regarding the ad.
