MTV Won’t Run Heroic Media Television Ads

Well, I finally came up with a reason to watch MTV.  The television channel may finally make up a little for launching the career of Wisconsin Rep. Sean Duffy by announcing it will turn down any ads that Heroic Media attempts to purchase during their shows.

The Florida Independent writes:

At an April 30 anti-abortion fundraiser in Bethesda, Md., headlined by Sarah Palin, Heroic Media announced that this spring’s Northeast marketing campaign would include television ads on MTV and BET, but an MTV spokesperson has since told The American Independent that it would not be airing the Heroic Media ads due to the organization’s recent billboard campaign that has sparked controversy.

Now the question is what do they have to do to make up for turning Jenny McCarthy into a celebrity?  That might take a little more effort.

    Maybe MTV can start contributing significant funds & time to the causes of sexual health & body images issues after unleashing The Jersey Shore upon us.
