Dixie Chicks shunned by networks...

Key parts from the Drudge Report:
Harvey Weinstein, co-chairman of The Weinstein Company stated, “It’s a sad commentary about the level of fear in our society that a movie about a group of courageous entertainers who were blacklisted for exercising their right of free speech is now itself being blacklisted by corporate America. The idea that anyone should be penalized for criticizing the president is sad and profoundly un-American.”

The Weinstein Company is exploring taking legal action.

Harvey, Harvey, Harvey...

The First Amendment only applies to government, not NBC or the CW network. If they do not want to run the ads, that is their decision.

But I guess free speech only goes your way.
