      NBC CENSORS DIXIE CHICKS AD

      DRUDGE REPORT - NBC and The CW Television Network have taken a stand
      against the Dixie's Chicks new documentary "Shut Up & Sing" a
      behind-the-scenes look at the incredible political and media fallout
      that occurred in 2003 after the Dixie Chicks lead singer Natalie
      Maines said that she was "ashamed the president of the United States
      is from Texas." "Shut Up & Sing" opens in theaters in NY and Los
      Angeles on Friday and in theaters nationwide on November 10th.

      NBC responded to a clearance report submitted by the Weinstein
      Company's media agency saying that the network "cannot accept these
      spots as they are disparaging to President Bush."

      The CW Television Network responded that it does "not have appropriate
      programming in which to schedule this spot."

      Famed litigator David Boies stated, "It is disappointing and troubling
      that NBC and The CW would refuse to accept an otherwise appropriate ad
      merely because it is critical of President Bush."

      Harvey Weinstein, co-chairman of The Weinstein Company stated, "It's a
      sad commentary about the level of fear in our society that a movie about
      a group of courageous entertainers who were blacklisted for exercising
      their right of free speech is now itself being blacklisted by corporate
      America. The idea that anyone should be penalized for criticizing the
      president is sad and profoundly un-American." The Weinstein Company is
      exploring taking legal action.
