On February 2nd, the Raging Grannies of South Florida uploaded a video with a special message for CBS. This viral video inspired a gaggle in California to travel to the CBS affiliate station in San Francisco to deliver it personally!

Raging Grannies at the CBS station in San Francisco were joined by other activists to sing about their disapproval of CBS' new ad policy. Some ads from liberal organizations were turned down while an ad from Focus on the Family was accepted to air during the Super Bowl. Troubled by this seeming inconsistency, the Peninsula Raging Grannies leaped at the chance to make their feelings known, even taking a moment to sing for political commentator, Joe Tuman! The South Florida Raging Grannies seem to have started a trend with their catchy lyrics... who knows where this song will be heard next? See the original video here:
