This week NBC refused to run an ad for the Dixie Chicks' movie, "Shut Up And Sing", a documentary about the trio's problems when they dared disagree with BushCo.

Before NBC blacklisted them, MSNBC had them on "Hardball" where they were able to speak with Babs-lovin' Chris Matthews.

LAist plans on seeing "Shut Up And Sing" at the AMC Century City this week. Currently it's only showing in LA and NY until it's released nationally next month.
