VIDEO: NOM On the Offense with Media Blitz in New York, Misspelling in Ad

UPDATE: So they took the misspelled video down. Shocker! Wouldn't you? But thanks to, I have a screen grab to show.

NY Times reports that the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) has begun to run the following ad today in New York City and Albany markets.

Oh, and let's play a game. Can you spot the misspelling in the ad? (Hint - :28)

It gets better. Hours after being made aware of the mistake and correcting it, they tried a second time, and well. . .

Now the lame radio ad:

NG Blog is reporting that they also intend to place a billboard in Times Square.

The Times reports, "Already, the National Organization for Marriage commercial has stirred controversy. WPIX-TV in New York has refused to run the ad, the group said. Officials at the station and the Tribune Company, which owns WPIX, did not respond to requests for comment."

These people are like a broken record, using arguments that have been debunked time and time again.

But they sure know their audience, catering to their worst fears about marriage equality. A recent poll of NYC residents show they're split on the issue, and the newest national Gallup poll shows opponents still greatly outnumber supporters.

Nothing like fear to keep logic in the closet.
