El Salvador Controversy

October 27, 1990

I completely agree with Howard Rosenberg's Oct. 10 article, "Standards Double When Controversy Strikes," in which he scolds a number of TV stations for banning an ad calling for an end to U.S. military aid to El Salvador. Not only do these stations promote public ignorance on such important issues, they also help our government censor the media.

U.S. taxes pay for Army ads that glorify the cause of killing innocent people; at the same time, the media reject an ad encouraging us to condemn the crime of murder.

If in November our country again has a low voter turnout, we can blame it on the networks and their stations that wouldn't show "controversial" issues.
