A Case of Advertising Bias by the Media

A well known cable service offering advertising within the central Ocala, FL area has chose to censor an advertisement media element due to the use of the word “Ho”. Their argument was that there would be too many phone calls complaining about the ad. However, the same station airs an ad for a local adult night club known for nude women, adult toys, DVD’s and other services. This is an acceptable advertisement even though it shows a women on a dance pole, men drinking and DVD’s out of focused in the background with the announcer telling what they are. This seems like a double standard. Of course, it is probably more about the amount of money being spent then the actual content in the long run. The amount of profit and the personal bias of the sales manager toward the use of the word “Ho” that is.
