Comcast Cable Rejects Equity Broadcasting Spot Based on Content
KWBF, WB 42, announced today that Comcast Cable in Little Rock has rejected a locally produced spot promoting its show "Confessions Live".
Sighting content issues, Comcast Cable refused to air the spot for "Confessions Live" the Equity Broadcasting program that airs nationwide on Friday nights from 11PM - 1AM CT.
Equity Broadcasting Corporation, Vice President of Television Operations, Neal Ardman said, "With the recent controversy surrounding 'The Book of Daniel' and now with Comcast's decision not to air the Confessions Live commercial, it appears that media censorship is becoming more and more mainstream. We, as broadcasters, must remember it is not our job to sensor but to put the matter before the viewers and let them decide. I'm wondering how much pressure the AFA is putting on Comcast."
KWBF, WB 42, recently announced that it would air NBC's "The Book of Daniel" after the local NBC affiliate opted not to air it.
