Cbs rejects gay dating commercial

Or is there a double standard at play here, one that for a change benefited conservatives?

CBS has rejected an ad from gay dating site Mancrunch.com, telling the site that the ad "is not within the Network's Broadcast Standards for Super Bowl Sunday," James Hibberd reports at The Live Feed.

Hibberd cited a letter from CBS in which the network expressed concern the site didn't have the money to pay for the ad (video of ad embedded below the fold): Also the network said its sales department had difficulty verifying the credit of the site to guarantee payment of the estimated .5 million cost to air the ad."After reviewing the ad - which is entirely commercial in nature - our Standards and Practices department decided not to accept this particular spot," said CBS in a statement.

"As always, we are open to working with the client on alternative submissions."Sources said the network felt the site was using the tried-and-true tactic of generating free publicity by submitting a Super Bowl ad they knew was likely to be rejected and was ultimately unwilling to pay for.

Hibberd reports that CBS believed Man Crunch was trying to generate free publicity by submitting an ad they knew would be rejected."We're 100% serious," Man Crunch spokesperson Elissa Buchter said. If the ad showed a man and woman kissing it would have been accepted. If the ad doesn't air on the Super Bowl, it will air on another network.
