POLITICS 11/09/2018 08:00 am ET The ad buy comes as Democrats scramble to protect the special counsel's investigation. By Kevin Robillard A group led by prominent Democratic legal and national security experts is spending six figures on a new television ad backing special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into President Donald Trump’s ties to Russia, following the forced departure of Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Sessions resigned Wednesday at the request of the president, who named Matt Whitaker as acting attorney general now overseeing the Russia investigation instead of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

Indonesia, the world's largest producer of palm oil, temporarily overtook the United States as one of the most polluting countries in the world in … [Read more...] about Why is palm oil bad for the environment, what did Iceland’s Christmas ad say about it and how is it involved in deforestation?
Iceland's main Christmas advert has been banned from TV as it is judged to be too political. The discount supermarket chain planned to use a Greenpeace-made animated short film, about the destruction of the rainforest caused by palm oil production, and its devastating impact on the critically endangered orangutan.Earlier this year, the major food retailer committed to remove palm oil from all its own-brand foods by the end of 2018.Iceland had wanted to make the Emma Thompson-voiced film, Rang-tan, central to its festive marketing campaign to raise awareness among shoppers.But Clearcast, the body responsible for vetting ads before they are broadcast, has said it has been unable to clear it because it breached the political rules set out in the broadcast code for advertising practice (BCAP). Under this code an advert is deemed to contravene the bar on political advertising if it is "inserted by or on behalf of a body whose objects are wholly or mainly of a political nature" or is … [Read more...] about Iceland Christmas ad on orangutan plight banned for political rule breach
