UPDATE: post #29 - Comcast bans gun ads -- sort of

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/02/...r-weapons/



Quote:Comcast, which recently acquired NBC Universal, has quietly decided to remove advertisements promoting firearms from its cable network, and gun retailers aren’t happy about it.

....a Comcast representative informed them that as of February 8 of this year, the network would no longer accept advertising from companies promoting firearms or fireworks on any network, during any time period.

TheBlaze attempted to get in touch with several Comcast representatives to ask why the decision was made now, what they hope to accomplish, and whether they plan to change their scheduled programming that features guns, but only one responded.

Chris Ellis, the director of communications at Comcast Spotlight, confirmed the new policy but declined to provide any supplementary information.

“Consistent with long standing NBC policies, Comcast Spotlight has decided it will not accept new advertising for firearms or weapons moving forward,” he said in an email. “This policy aligns us with the guidelines in place at many media organizations.”

Both Wright and Kupiec further noted that at almost any given time, you can flip to regular programming that features guns in a legal capacity (the Outdoor Channel, the Sportsman Channel, NBC Sports), or in a violent scene of a television show or movie.

Is Comcast planning on making changes to their scheduled programming, too, they wondered?

In other news, NBC & Comcast both will continue promoting shows and advertisements where underage people fuck.

Oh, well, one less channel I have to check for shooting related shows. They still have some hunting shows but it looks like they gave up Three Gun Nation to the Sportsman Channel so I just don't have to deal with the former "Outdoor Life" network.

I am going to sound like some Amish guy (Tongue) on the forum but I haven't had TV for about 10 years now. I sure will not have any problem not watching.
