WTCI Says Fleischmann Ad Included Unauthorized Use Of Logo

Friday, July 25, 2014

Officials of WTCI TV said a Chuck Fleischmann TV ad contained an unauthorized use of the public TV station's logo.

Officials stated in a letter to WTCI viewers:

"We understand that members of our community may have received a printed communication from the Chuck Fleischmann for Congress Committee featuring the headline "Weston Wamp Supports Amnesty for Illegal Immigration." The mailer contains a quotation attributed to Mr. Wamp from the debate hosted by WTCI and the Chattanooga Times Free Press on July 2nd and text that denotes the source of that material.

"The mailing also includes the WTCI logo, our service mark. Because the quotation is sourced in separate text, we believe that this unauthorized use of our logo and service mark is potentially misleading to the public. We want to be clear that WTCI does not endorse the campaign communications of any candidate in this race or any race and that the mailing does not necessarily represent the views of the staff or the board of WTCI.

"Chuck Fleischmann for Congress Committee did not seek permission to use WTCI's logo and it was not granted. We’ve asked the organization to withdraw the mailer from circulation and cease to distribute it immediately."

Don't Clog Up The Last Remaining Semi-Unobstructed Route Into Town From North Of The River - And Response (2)

The proposal to turn Hixson Pike in Riverview into a more pedestrian friendly street is more than absurd.   Let's be honest. This is the last semi-unobstructed route into town from north of the river, due to I-27 construction and the bike lane/parking lot that is North Market Street.  So, now the businesses in Riverview would like parking on this main artery? ...
