CBS Outdoor, the billboard advertising arm of CBS Television, refuses to allow a group to use this image on a billboard on which they wish to advertise in New Jersey for those reasons.
A pro life group wishes to use the image along with this ad copy:
A Woman’s “Right to Choose”
A Baby’s Right to Live
We Can Help. Call 1.800.848.LOVE
CBS spokesperson, Dianne Curry, said:
“While we accept ads for both “Pro Choice” and “Right to Life” organizations, we acknowledge that the issue is highly polarizing with strong advocacy on each side of the debate. Additionally, it is a potentially emotional topic that might be unduly disturbing to your women who may have made the kinds of choices that the displays deal with. Therefore, the accepted copy cannot include images which might be deemed shocking, unsettling or even manipulative.”
However, Ms. Curry was comfortable allowing the following billboard to run:
This is an outstanding billboard, one that addresses the issue of black genocide on which this blog has written.
But one can’t help but be struck by CBS’ inconsistency: black baby good; white baby bad.
I would suggest that a human life is a human life whether black, white, or purple.
Political correctness continues to flourish at CBS and the rest of the mainstream media.
