NFL, KNBC Rejected Gay Marriage Spot

Feb 4, 2009  •  Post A Comment

KNBC-TV and the NFL refused to air a public service announcement about same-sex marriage during Super Bowl XLIII, FishbowlLA reports. KNBC, the NBC station in Los Angeles, says it showed the commercial to the NFL, which vetoed it on grounds that it was an “advocacy” ad, something the league refuses to air during the game, the site says. However, anti-tobacco and anti-steroid PSAs aired during the game, the site notes.
