Agency Refuses Business From Companies In 'Ignorant' Areas


As reported in Ethics Crisis, Tampa Ad Agency Cheap TV Spots is putting its moral and political views into play and has refused to do business with any client in areas that, according to agency spokesman Jeffrey Hilton, "seek to weaken the nation with these ignorant and ultimately counterproductive attitudes." The areas the agency will not serve are South Dakota, Omaha, NE and Black Jack, MO.

The agency feels recent legislation in these areas "cast aside American values." The South Dakota legislature recently approved a bill to prohibit abortions in that state. Nebraska legislators passed laws segregating Omaha schools into black, Hispanic and white districts. Black Jack, Missouri city council members rejected a measure allowing unmarried couples with multiple children to live together, resulting in the possible eviction of such families from their homes.

Everyone's entitled to an opinion. Aside from that, in this business, it's admirable when an agency turns down business for any reason.

Cheap TV Spots is going to have to shut down their Tampa office and go abroad if Bush gets his "no same-sex marriages" amendment passed. If he does, and they do, I hope they bring me with them. Yay for cheap TV Spots.

Besides, we'll be moving out of the country soon when Cheap TV Spots makes it's move.

Staying out of Omaha? Good! Enjoy Europe. Oh by the way the funy law in Nebraska will likely never really see life.
