Obama Paid Ads Pack Satellite TV Channel

Obama paid advertising on Satellite TV channel

ChanNenel 73 on the Dish Network is now The Obama Channel. (Wording of Ben Smith)

...The channel's appearance has provoked scorn and alarm on conservative blogs, though, and some discussion on a forum for Satellite TV aficionados, where one user writes that a Dish Network executive emailed to reassure the user that it "is paid advertising by the Obama campaign and is not an endorsement of Senator Obama by DISH Network" and will broadcast through November 4.

Dish Network spokesman Parker McConachie confirmed the forum account, and stressed that the channel is paid advertising, and not a corporate endorsement.
