Canada spurns infidelity ad for Super Bowl

ESPN isn't the only sports-related entity that has shunned infidelity-dating service Ashley Madison. CTV, the station that will beam the Super Bowl across Canada this Sunday, is barring this 30-second Ashley Madison spot from the broadcast because, it says, it doesn't want such adulterous filth running alongside work from "quality brands." Well, maybe not filth—it's hardly a racy spot—but it is more blatantly immoral than, say, a beer commercial. Maybe Ashley Madison president Noel Biderman should spend less time feigning indignation and more time sandblasting the scammers and webcam girls off his precious Web site, just in case one of his stupid ads doesn't get blackballed.
