The Public Campaign Action Fund, a nonpartisan group that says its working to advance public financing of elections, took Insight to task over its decision not to air its commercial criticizing Sen Mitch McConnell (R-KY) Thurs night. In a news release, PACF said that execs at the company have given the senator $17K in campaign contributions and claimed the MSO’s action “reeks of censorship.” Not so, says Insight. The Natl Republican Senatorial Committee objected shortly after the MSO’s advertising arm got the spot. Because of that objection, Insight said it began a careful review of the ad with outside counsel. The review was completed within 24 hours, and Insight notified the ad agency that it will accept the spot for future airing. “There is no merit to the baseless claim made by a political issue group that our actions were the consequence of any political pressure. It was simply a prudent business judgment,” Insight said.
