First Andrea Mitchell, Now Big Bird

Yesterday, the Obama campaign used MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell in a campaign ad, sparking a complaint from NBC News (as of this morning the ad was still airing, at least on our TVs here in the office).

Sesame Workshop is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization and we do not endorse candidates or participate in political campaigns. We have approved no campaign ads, and as is our general practice, have requested that the ad be taken down.
