Rudy Giuliani Demands Placement Of NY Times Ad. Violation Time!

The Politics TV team helped put together this video showing Rudy Giuliani demanding to have his anti-MoveOn ad placed on a date certain which is in violation of the rules since he got the discounted---standby rate. Lane Hudson filed a FEC complaint against Team Rudy:

Rudy Giuliani is a hypocrite who thinks he should live by rules different than others. He attacked MoveOn.org and the New York Times for the rate charged for a newspaper ad. Promptly, he ran an ad in response and paid….wait for it….the SAME amount.

Now we find out that his campaign lied to the Washington Post:

In a write-up over at the Washington Post by Michael Shear, Rudy's spokesperson had this to say:

"Our ad not only met the acceptability standards of The New York Times, but it was placed at the standby rate with no commitment it would run on a specific date."

However, in direct conflict to this statement is Hizzoner himself. Check it out here. In Rudy's own words, he DEMANDS that his ad run in that Friday's New York Times at the SAME rate he had already criticized MoveOn for receiving. He sounds like an angry little kid demanding an equal share of a piece of chocolate, NOT a Presidential candidate.

Justine Cole has much more..."NY Times' Seelye, public editor give conflicting reports on whether Times promised to run Giuliani ad on specific day." There is a huge conflict between what the Public editor has said and the NY Times reporter. Please demand a response.

Email the Public Editor at the NYT to demand the same treatment he gave to MoveOn for Rudy. His email is:
