ABC Bans America Flag Lapel Pins


I don't know how long ago this happened but it checks out as true. Evidently this email has been floating around for a while.

ABC NEWS BANS FLAG LAPEL PINS This is what we get from the present attitudes in Washington.Barbara Walters said that this was going to hurt ABC bad.
And she works for ABC.
YESTERDAY THE BRASS AT ABC NEWS ISSUED ORDERS FORBIDDING REPORTERS TO WEAR LAPEL PIN AMERICAN FLAGS OR OTHER PATRIOTIC INSIGNIA. THEIR REASONING WAS THAT ABC SHOULD REMAIN NEUTRAL ABOUT 'CAUSES'.
SINCE WHEN IS PATRIOTISM TO BE DISCOURAGED?
I URGE YOU TO BOYCOTT ABC AND ITS SPONSORS AND AFFILIATES. WE ARE SLOWLY LOSING EVERYTHING OUR COUNTRY STANDS FOR AND EVERYTHING OUR MEN AND WOMEN FOUGHT AND DIED TO PRESERVE!

PLEASE FORWARD THIS TO AS MANY AS YOU CAN.
THIS HAS BEEN VERIFIED THROUGH:http://www.truthorfiction.com/rumors/a/abcflag.htm
THIS ONE NEEDS TO BE CIRCULATED...QUICKLY

This story has been around a while. Some people say the story is not true and others say it is, either way the story broke a long time ago and created a buzz about it then, but it never hurts to bring it back up again!

The first ever use of such lapel pins was done by the Soviet Union in different types of political gatherings and to dignify the technical achievements of the nation.
