There’s little debate that Super Bowl XLIV will pit the top teams in each conference against each other.
But there’s already a great deal of controversy surrounding commercials that will air on CBS during the game. A pro-choice group, for example, is taking extreme exception to the planned Tim Tebow ad on the February 7 broadcast.
Many liberals might have more to shout over now:
CBS continues to stall over a commercial from ManCrunch.com, a gay dating website. The network has told the company that ad space is full, though many spots remain unsold. Said spokesman Dominic Friesen:
“It’s clearly a form of discrimination that we’re getting the runaround, that we’re not being told the truth. Quite frankly, there is a lot of ad space available – a lot of the companies that typically advertise during the Super Bowl are not advertising this year.”
In the 30-second spot, two men are watching the game, reach into the chip bowl simultaneously… and then make out. Watch it below and sound off: Is this a double standard, considering the approval for the aforementioned pro-life ad?
