Australian TV Channel Bans TPP information advertisement

Channel 9 has banned the new TV ad from airing during the evening news — and they refuse to say why. The ad simply shows, in irreverent fashion, what the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement will mean for Australian families. The Abbott government is trying to keep this deal secret from Australians, and now Channel 9 is joining in.
The ad has been prepared by GetUp – an Australian activist group – with funds raised from supporters.
GetUp is now looking for ad spots during the news on other networks, before a critical by-election next Saturday.  One prominent channel has agreed to air it.
