Do political figures have the right to pull ads they don't like that represent them in ways they don't like to be represented? Here's the article:


Clarke Asks Anti-Bush Group to Pull TV Ads

WASHINGTON - President Bush (news - web sites)'s former counterterrorism adviser objected Wednesday to the use of his name and critical comments about Bush in a new broadcast advertisement from a political group supporting Democratic candidate John Kerry (news - web sites).

He can ask for the ads to be pulled. He can ask It doesn't mean that they will be! Since he is a political public figure and these were public statements, I don't think he has much of a leg to stand on. CBS, on the other hand, they might have a case. Not to get the ad pulled, but maybe have their footage removed.

I agree that he can ask, but since his life is lived in the public eye, not too much hope for him.

I don't know the legalities for either. My position is that they should have asked Clarke first. Maybe they didn't take his comments out of context, but it would have been very easy for them to do so. That's why I get bothered when ANY politician uses blurbs to portray their opponent in a negative light, because it's doubtful that you're getting the whole story. Same with the news. They pick and choose the comments that will make their story BE what they want it to be.

So while Clarke may not have any legal recourse, I don't blame him with being concerned about how his words are being used.
