    CBS4 nixes union-bashing commercial - By Jay Fitzgerald, BostonHerald
    CBS4 didn’t cite a specific reason for rejecting the television ad, which shows actors making sarcastic remarks about unions and ends with the refrain, “Thanks Union Bosses!”

    But CBS4 spokeswoman Ro Dooley Webster, citing the station’s published policies about accepting or rejecting political ads, said CBS4 reviewed the commercial for content, fairness and accuracy.

    “We decided this wasn’t appropriate for our marketplace,” she said.

    But Richard Berman, executive director of the Center for Union Facts and a lobbyist who has represented the tobacco, alcohol and food industries in the past, cried “censorship” and said CBS4’s decision was “outrageous.”
