This Is Not Your Nebraska Governor

Our friends up at 50th & Underwood won't be pleased to read this, but we've given them a pass on it for months. Now it's time to come clean.

JohannsLast Friday night, KFAB (1110 AM) aired a public service announcement touting the Nebraska College Savings Program. What makes this PSA noteworthy?

It begins with the voice of Mike Johanns saying, "This is your Nebraska Governor."

Ouch. Johanns hasn't been the state's top official since January of 2005.

The kicker: the spot is sponsored by the Nebraska Broadcasters Association.

Tune in tonight to "The Savage Nation" and "Coast to Coast" to find out if the PSA has finally made its way out of the rotation...

saddlemeyer is so busy wetting himself with anticipation of having johanns back in Nebraska, that little things like "accuracy" never come into the picture.

It would seem this is something scheduled BY THE NEBRASKA BROADCASTERS and NOT a local station...

Kind of like an add insert in new paper..
Is it the fault of the newspaper if the copy comes from an outside source and is wrong?

Maybe the Nebraska Broadcasting Association was too busy dishing out excellence in broadcasting awards to KFAB to take notice? That, of course, isn't worthy of such an investigative guru such as yourself.

Personally I wouldn't listen to the tripe coming from the neocons or the liberals. I tire of the rhetoric and these blowhards telling everyone how to believe, from the cult of Christianity being the end all and be all from the right to the cult of environmental concern from the left. It's all almost farcical and quite ridiculous.
