Buy Nothing Day TV Spot Rejected by some networks
The Buy Nothing Day TV spot by Adbusters was rejected by MTV, ABC, and CTV. Listening to the rejection calls are telling.
"Suck it up! It's the real world!... We sell time for many different things but not issues of public importance."TV doesn't like controversy. Its job is to keep you watching, docile and receptive, and to keep you, above all else, buying. Reflection, thought, and questioning are its enemies.
