Cbs rejects gay dating site 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 spokeswoman Shannon Jacobs.
"We are always open to working with a client on alternative submissions." Buchter provided a copy of the CBS rejection letter which says that the proposed adverisement "is not within the Network's broadcast standards for Super Bowl Sunday," and also adds that the CBS sales department "has had difficulty verifying credit status." Buchter claims that the site offered to pay cash," while Jacobs says CBS has no record of any such offer.
After a fortnight's consideration, CBS informed that its ad had been rejected in a note reading: "CBS Standards and Practices has reviewed your proposed Super Bowl ad and concluded that the creative is not within the Network's Broadcast Standards for Super Bowl Sunday." The CBS note did not give any reason for the decision, leaving it unclear what objections were voiced by its standards and practices division.
