It was interesting to hear they had pulled the ads on the 10:00 news and then have the ad on this channel the same newscast. Very interesting..Surely nothing political concerning 5 news??????

I noticed that also. The news story stating how Boozman had pulled the ad and the next commercial they ran was the pulled ad they were talking about. I believe the ad that Blanche Lincoln is running depicting Mr Boozman with blacked out teeth should be pulled. How childish. What is the point of her ad? Is she mocking people who don't have dental insurance?

Who are the razorbacks, and what do they have to do with censorship of the media ?

Did Lincoln go to the U of A or any Arkansas college for that matter? Just wondering

This is hardly a "school controversy." It's blatant copyright infringement. A government official should be more in tune to the laws of our country.

It appears that Channel 5, the U of A’s Chancellor, and the Boozman campaign have conspired to fraud the electorate. The ad WAS NOT pulled as reported, and the Chancellor went to great lengths with Channel 5 to distinguish that there was a “friendly disagreement” between the U of A and Boozman over what, if any, permission was given. Am I to believe that the Chancellor didn’t know the ad was going to air, again? Clearly, he was talking to Channel 5 about the ad. Am I to believe that Channel 5 didn’t know either?

From a very plain and ordinary view, each entity – the U of A’s Chancellor, Channel 5 and Boozman – appears to have created a symbiotic and controversial buzz about the ad ( and furthered it last night on air) but for what purpose? An assistant U.S. Attorney used to say “in for a penny, in for a pound” with regard to conspiracy. Why didn’t they just run the news story tonight, if the ad was simply “still in the server” and ran automatically, which was the quote I got from Channel 5 last night when I called them about this very issue.

At best, the Chancellor appears to be an impotent dupe with regard to the power necessary to manage assets under his charge (i.e. the U of A copyright). At worst, they all conspired to endorse Boozman, effectively.

As a U of A alumnus, I am upset, obviously. Moreover, I do not appreciate the Chancellor’s complicity in this matter. Alternatively, I question his savvy when dealing with the media…and so should you!
