NBC Commercial Rejection

NBC won’t run this ad during the superbowl citing that they do not allow political or issue advocacy advertisements. They also rejected a PETA sponsored commercial that depicts mostly naked women fondling a variety of vegetables. The claim of the PETA ad is that vegetarians make better lovers. NBC stated they would be willing to work with PETA if they edited the commercial to meet their standards of sexual content. So my question is this: isn’t PETA and the point of their commercial issue advocacy? If “issue advocacy” is an issue for them, then why even work with PETA at all?

Totally weak NBC.
