T. Boone Pickens has issued an email call to his army of "Pickens Plan" volunteers to get the word out about NBC's refusal to run his latest ad. The 15 second spot, which highlights Iran's rampant rush to convert their automobiles to run on natural gas (in order to free up oil that they can sell for $120 a barrel to the US and rest of the world), has apparently been shunned by the powers that be at NBC. No other network has refused the ad however.
We brought you the story of Iran's subsidized CNG car conversion program back in July and we believe that the NBC/Iran controversy will only serve to increase the awareness of this issue.
The ad appears below. Go Boone!
