    I think of "censorship" as being done by governments, not by private companies. Otherwise, it's what I'd consider "media bias".

    I'd just consider them having good taste. How did they censor it? By simply not airing it? Considering Fox's demographic, why would PETA air it on Fox anyway? Unless it was during the chicken fight episode of family guy.

    the fact that this would make most of the people that watch fox call them up and ask why they aired it is prob why they didn't air it. that isn't censorship that is just the way business works

    honestly. peta putting that on fox makes me think of maybelline buying ad space in men's health. people who are part of PETA, or likely to be interested in PETA, are probably not watching FOX.

    though i did see this hot shade of red in GQ last issue.

    also. this probably woulda worked better had they tied it in with burger king's online chicken campaign of the guy dressed like a chicken. cmon PETA, if u wanna reach the consumer whore, think like the corporate asshole.

    redhead I think you are right, "media bias" is a more accurate term.

    As long as they can rouse disliking for either the right or wrong side of the story is what I believe their interests lye. Too many times you have people complain the news is too conservative, too liberal, to impartial, when they really just want you to have bitter feelings for someone or something in order to 'help' lead you into the 'right direction', preferably their own. Call it propaganda or conspiracy theory, but pay real close attention to the news next you see it. I'm not talking about the weather or the cooking specials either. The ploy in the language they use: what they don't say is as much a factor in getting you to lean towards a certain belief or idea as the facts, opinions, hype and danger they throw at you everyday. Call me crazy, call me pathetic, but this is what the news means to me.
    Whose special interest are you buying into today?

    zimatar the commercial is of police brutality against a guy in a chicken costume. the reason for this is because KFC has been a major violator of animal welfare abuse and PETA has been trying to get them to adopt better policies.

    Hmmm... not sure on the censorship, but it does seem kinda racy compared to most commercials on TV today (it is depicting an assault, after all).

    I guess if it were up to me, I'd ask the PETA people to come up with something a little less blunt, or perhaps just show the piece after 10 PM or something. The message is important, but it needs to be handled in a certain way, I think.

    PETA doesn't have the money to sweeten the deal enough for conservative FoX to air this.

    ...but eHarmony ran ads on big gay Bravo network last night. I guess FoX sticks to their "principles" more than other networks.

    why on earth would eHarmony even want to air ads on Bravo? Str8 People dont watch bravo. Additionally Bravo is not a true "gay" network like Logo.

    E-Harmony on Bravo is probably drawing in the straight females who watch the fashion shows, queer eye, and whatever other shows are on there.

    What's a "female"?

    female = replacement companion when a straight college student has outgrown the affection a labrador can give him. often, the straight male reverts to canine companionship after years of female companionship. AKA, some bitches can't talk back.

    At least show them beating up a real chicken! Now that would be "cruelicious" Yum-O!

    Why does Peta have a thing against PepsiCo? What's next, are they gonna have a Latin-themed ad of a beaten up Cheesy-Gordita-Crunch from Taco Bell? That has animal in it, right?

    What about popeyes they sell the same product oh and I am sure that KFC is related to both Taco Bell and Burger king. They all get there chicken from the same place. Besides aren't these clones of chicken anyway? I heard that somewhere.icon_twisted.gif

    Makes perfect sense to me....

    One of Peta's primary demographics is easily influenced & exposed to peer pressure young adults

    Who else watches FOX
