Fox and CBS refuse to air condom ads
FOX and CBS have both recently refused to air ads for condoms that emphasize their use as a birth control method. When interviewed by the New York Times, a FOX rep said, that the decision was based on their policy that condom ads "must stress health-related issues rather than the prevention of pregnancy." In other words, it is okay to educate consumers about STDs, but empowering them to make reproductive choices is beyond the purview of two of our nation's most sex-saturated networks.

3. What's wrong with these networks? Afraid the hierarchy of the catholic church......
will come after you? Or is there the 'problem' of abstinence and the RW? Cut the PC crap and make the world a better and safer place!

7. Fox anchors confuse condoms with hats. That's one of the consequences of being a dickhead.

11. Yes, By All Means, Let's Put Our Outdated, Prudish Morals...
...above the fact that people could DIE.

Aren't these people supposed to have an obligation to tell us what's going on in the world?
