Several Friends of Unfair Park have pointed out, in the comments below and via email, that Stephen Colbert last night tackled the NBA lockout ... and, while he was at it, WFAA-Channel 8, for refusing to run his latest Super PAC ad in support of NBA owners working hard to save the basketball season "so we don't have to watch hockey." Says Colbert, he bought airtime on Dallas's ABC affiliate, only to be told: No. "Well, WFAA," says Colbert, "you have fucked with the wrong people."

Yeah, so like, fuck Belo, man, all big successful companies suuck.

Chris Danger shows his anti-republican ass again. Why am I not surprised? Keep your damn politics out of it. Belo is a business which has the right to show what it wants on the air Chris? Get it, freedom of choice when it's your own company. How much more logical can it get? Imagine if the Dallas Observer refused to run ads of the Dallas News on there paper.
