    CBS Slams McCain For Unauthorized Use Of Couric In Ad

    John McCain has repeatedly used music for his campaign without artist’s permission, and now he’s using network newscasters without their permission.

    A source close to Couric told Access Hollywood the CBS news anchor was not happy after a McCain ad surfaced using an unauthorized portion of a CBS news segment with Couric addressing sexism in the 2008 Presidential campaign.

    CBS responded to the campaign ad issuing a statement released to Access, saying, “CBS News does not endorse any candidate in the Presidential race. Any use of CBS personnel in political advertising that suggests the contrary is misleading.”

    The ad has also been removed from YouTube.
