RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- Starting this week, a very graphic advertisement is slated to begin airing on this station and four other Reno television stations, and News 4 has no control over what is in the ad, or whether or not to run it.
The advertisement is for Independent American Party Candidate Russell Best, who is running for Congressional District 2. Best is on the ballot in Nevada as a qualified candidate running for federal office, meaning he can purchase ad time to run his political advertisements on every program on a broadcast station, even children's programming.
News 4 and every other station on the public airwaves across the nation has to run political ads from federal candidates, no matter what the content.
The advertisement, which will run this week, includes photographs of aborted fetuses.
Please know that this station does not condone or support the advertisement, and we have no control of the content in it.
