    OK, I'm at the gym tonight, and I'm on the exercise bike, listening to the Royals lose to the Bluejays. There are several TV's on several different channels hanging from the ceiling.

    One is on CNN, and its showing Campbell whateverhername.

    So I'm not really paying attention, and they go to commercial, and what commercial comes on?

    An advertisement for Henry Rifles. ON CNN!

    You could have knocked me over with a feather.

    A gun manufacturer's advertisement on CNN.

    They are like whores. They don't care where the money comes from, just as long as they get their share. On the plus side, maybe they are changing their views on guns. I hope so. Larry Evans

    I've seen that ad on Fox also...I kind of like seeing firearm ads on the MSM.

    They'll (CNN) take any advertising dollars they can get with the ratings as bad as they are.

    True hypocrites kind of like the dog you have to feed with a stick. If you don't he will bite the hand that feeds him.

    Michmoe ... don't you realize that Liberals don't want you to have guns ... but it is OK for them to have guns!

    When Senator Fineswine was Mayor of San Francisco ... she carried a snub nose .38 in her purse ... all the while she was trying to deny guns to the citizens!

    Where do you live? Not all commercials are national. Local stations and cable providers get a certain # of ads per hour to insert local spots. These could be for your town car dealer, restaurant, anything really. It's likely CNN has no idea what ads are being inserted into their programming in the local slots.
