Cable Channel 28 in Delaware "forgot" to air Christine O'Donnel's 30 minute ad buy

Apparently, the station "forgot" to air the ad not just once, but twice, according to Christine O'Donnell's recent tweets.

Last night:

Hear what real Delawareans are saying on Channel 28 at 11:30 PM, then make up your own mind and vote on November 2. #desen 12 hours ago via TweetDeck

1 minute until the premiere of our 30 minute feature. Tune in to meet all the heart warming people I've met on the campaign trail. Ch. 28

Okay... this is NOT our show! Must be a programming mix up. We will get back to you...

And again this morning:

The Inspiring TV show about Delawareans will air at 10 aam and 3 pm today on Channel 28. Please watch this before you vote. 2 hours ago via txt

This isn't our show either! We are told channel 28 "forgot" to air it...both times... even though we paid for the time slot last week.

Channel 28 "forgot" to run their advertiser's 30 minute ad buys? Who actually believes that? A buy that large is too much money even for a local cable channel to forget to air it. What are the chances this same station would forget to run 30 minute ads for Chris Coons?

I just checked in at the channel's website and see that a Christine O'Donnell video is up and running, but it's unclear if it's also running on its cable channel, which was what the original buy was for.

Between local reporters for Alaska's CBS affiliate KTVA discussing the various ways they could negatively report on Joe Miller's campaign and Channel 28 in Delaware "forgetting" to run two of Christine O'Donnell's 30 minute shows, it seems the local media in these two markets have thrown down the gauntlet. With the Democrats less than 24 hours away from an unprecedented electoral rout, it appears they've decided there isn't any point in pretending any more and have admitted that they are 100% in the tank for the Democrats.

Update: Hot Air placed a link to a WaPo article that also reports on Channel 28's forgetfulness in its headlines.

Update II: Watch O'Donnell's ad here:

Kim, you forget the motto of the media. "If we don't report it, it didn't happen."

HA! A disorganized mess of a campaign is late getting the video to the station, the video doesn't air, and Ms Priestap and other hysterical Righties are hissyfitting about a conspiracy!

Ms O'Donnell had announced no public events on the LAST DAY OF THE CAMPAIGN, she's so far behind, but rubes believe the Liberal Media is stealing the election from her.

Uh, Bruce could you take a moment to link to where some "rube' is claiming that "the Liberal Media is stealing the election from her. (O'Donnell)"?

If you can't, I'm afraid we'll have to entertain the notion that you are a liar and that you just "make this stuff up."

LOL!

this from a lefty whose party passed a gargantuan 2800 page bill without even reading it and told us we would have to pass it so we could see what was in it!

Research?

Yeah, the left is all about "research"......lol

Bruce is scared of succesful conservative Women. Thats why he makes stuff up.

Bruce Henry:

Umm, is Ms O'Donnell behind in the polls or not?

Did she have any public events scheduled on Monday or not?

Was the video delivered late or not? Isn't that the real reason why it didn't air, not a conspiracy to steal an election that's as good as won?

Did the campaign tacitly acknowledge that fact or not?

Drago:

Bruce (#14): "What did I make up? What did I lie about?"

Is reading comprehension not your forte Brucie?

Here, I'll break it down for you:

Bruce (#9): "...but rubes believe the Liberal Media is stealing the election from her."

Drago (#10): "Uh, Bruce could you take a moment to link to where some "rube' is claiming that "the Liberal Media is stealing the election from her. (O'Donnell)?
If you can't, I'm afraid we'll have to entertain the notion that you are a liar and that you just "make this stuff up."

The logically-impaired Bruce #14): "What did I make up? What did I lie about?"

I'll try to make it even more clear for you Bruce.

You made an ASSERTION.

I asked you to provide the evidence for that assertion (to wit:"...but rubes believe the Liberal Media is stealing the election from her").

I then stipulated that "if you can't", then you would be guilty of lying and just making stuff up.

Your response? Wha? Huh? Who me? What'd I say, what'd I say (insert beaky the buzzard signature song here).........

Don't worry, Logic is usually taught in your Sophomore year.

JLawson:

The wheels have come off the Obama bus... and Bruce has realized that he's under it.

That'd be enough to piss anyone off...

Bruce Henry:

Reading comprehension is not MY forte, Mr Drago?

Umm, did you read the comments above mine? Not to name any names, but those are the not-rubes (according to you) who certainly SEEM to feel there's a conspiracy.

Specifically, comments # 1, 2, 3, 4, and 8.

So, no, I decline to provide any further evidence. Read 'em, Mr Drago - I rest my case.

Oh, and by the way, please refrain from snark about other people's reading comprehension, genius.

And hello, Mr Lawson. I'm not pissed off. More like resigned. Hopeful that it won't be as bad as you guys hope it will. But not engaging in wishful thinking or regrets.
