Updating my blog post from earlier in the day about Media Matters' anti-Lou Dobbs, anti-CNN, anti-Birther TV ad--five of six cable providers contracted won't run it on CNN. The liberal watchdog group had bought time on CNN, during Dobbs' show no less, but only a small New York City cable provider is going to show it on the news network. The other providers will show it on MSNBC and Fox News, but not on CNN. Media Matters spokeswoman Jessica Levin said that they haven't gotten an explanation yet but will pursue one.
