What is going on here?
A station in Delaware did not run the Christine O’Donnell program this morning even though the 30 minute program was paid for.
They said they “forgot” to air it.
They were reminded to run the show this morning.
More… The ad was supposed to air on Sunday night. They forgot then, too.
The O’Donnell Campaign released the following statement:

“It’s still unclear as to why the local cable channel failed to air the half-hour long special. Our hope is that this is not another case of the liberal media or political dirty tricks trying to silence Christine’s message to the voters of Delaware.
“Christine announced the broadcast during yesterday’s rally in Wilmington, and it was scheduled to run at 11:30 p.m. Sunday and again at 10 a.m. today. But, the channel did not air the powerful ad at either scheduled time. We are very disappointed that an ad, which the campaign paid for last week, was not aired as scheduled.”
UPDATE: The station finally aired the ad at 3:00 EST today.
