CNN Rejects Salon Ads Because They Are Competitors

from the silly-people,-the-web-is-about-working-together dept

Well, the subject says it all. Salon has put together its first bunch of nationally televised television spots, and CNN refuses to air them since they see Salon as a competitor. I’d bet it was just one guy in CNN’s advertising group who made the decision, after briefly reviewing Salon and thinking they were a strict news site. Seems a bit silly to me. I really don’t think that Salon is pulling traffic away from CNN in any way.
