AT&T Dropped This Call

Reminiscent of their commercials (where calls are dropped at various inopportune moments), AT&T "dropped" the audio feed of a Peal Jam webcast at the most interesting of times.

From the Pearl Jam site:

During the performance of "Daughter" the following lyrics were sung to the tune of Pink Floyd's "Another Brick in the Wall" but were cut from the webcast:

- "George Bush, leave this world alone." (the second time it was sung); and

- "George Bush find yourself another home."

An outrage to be sure.

And yeah, it shouldn't be a surprise that mega-corporations try to control what we see and hear, but what was AT&T thinking? Two-thirds of the U.S. think Bush is dropping the ball - you'd think they'd go with the numbers on this one.


Thanks, AdPulp

AT&T apologizes. Now, maybe this website should apologize for misspelling "apologize".
