NBC News spokeswoman Allison Gollust tells TVNewser YouTube has agreed to pull down the video (it is still up at this time) and will continue to police it. But the Obama campaign, apparently, isn’t budging.
“We have engaged the Obama campaign on the legal front and demanded that they stop using the ad,” Gollust says. “To date they have not complied. Their response was to put a tagline at the end of the ad. However, that is not good enough, and we continue to demand they cease and desist using this outrageous ad.”
The tagline reads “NBC and MSNBC did not cooperate in the making of this video” and flashes for three seconds at the end of the ad.
