NBC reverses course, plans to run Freedom’s Watch ad.

After rejecting an ad by the group Freedom’s Watch which NBC claimed was too political, the network reversed course today. In a statement issued Saturday evening, NBC said: “We have reviewed and changed our ad standards guidelines and made the decision that our policy will apply to content only and not to a referenced Web site. Based on these amended standards the Freedom’s Watch ad will begin to run as early as Sunday.”
