Creative/Misleading/Underhanded Political Ad

I had Channel 5 news on last night when this ad aired during a commercial break. I wasn't really paying attention and didn't see the very quick disclaimer at the beginning. From there I was doing a double take while thinking, "Man, that sure is a biased newscast." I rewound it just to be sure, and that's when I discovered it was a political ad.

Look at the way how the news cast video ends but the audio keeps going as it cuts to photos of Branch.

KXAS is contesting the video. But I assume they took the money to run it.
