CBS rejects NORML legalization billboard, but accepts “Black Children are an Endangered Species” anti-abortion billboard.
I believe that BOTH ads are equally controversial and political, so why would CBS carry on in a hypocritical and double standard manner?

So much for the "Liberal Media". CBS also turned down a same sex dating site ad for superbowl. Doesn't sound very Liberal to me.

Is weed illegal? Yes? then NO to the ad. The abortion ad NEVER mentioned abortion. Ever. It was a silly ad that was payed for by a prolife group. But at NO point did it try and shove an agenda....just gave a website where you could get more info on their story. The Abortion sign about AA kids is disturbing and wrong. But that JMO. As for the gay dating site ad.....did you SEE it. It WAS over the top and in your face and they WANTED exactly what they GOT. They knew that it wouldnt fly the way it was done and they got a WHOLE LOT more attention this way anyway!

Ok...I get that Night. I personally dont like the ad. I think that like the ad for a gay dating website, they purposefully try and make it over the top and not focused. Weed plants multiplied OVER and OVER with dollar signs doesnt really scream respectable usage.....but then I guess the argument can be made the same way of the half naked girls selling beer ;) Do you think that maybe the TYPE of ad has more to do with the rejections than the content of the ad?

I think this might be it. I can't open the link right now... But I heard about this on XM this morning.

To compare abortion to weed is a very simple case of apples and oranges imo.
