NBC knows its constituency.

Typical. That's all I can say.
Really, this was a very powerful commercial which nobody can attack at all, and yet that is why it's banned.

The commercial is great, and I totally support the message, but it is undeniably an "advocacy" ad -- and so as long as NBC applies its policy of "no advocacy ads" consistently, I'm okay with them rejecting it.

HOWEVER ... does NBC really apply that policy consistently? PETA recently tried to submit a commercial to NBC that was rejected not because it was an "advocacy" ad but because it was too sexually charged. And NBC's longstanding public service announcement series of commercials, "The More You Know," advocates for everything from diversity/anti-prejudice to monitoring kids' TV viewing.
