And yes, I'm sure we all understand how advertising works.........you buy airtime, the station plays it when they choose. BUT, if enough people speak out, and enough companies refuse to have their 'purchased airtime' be during that show, one would think it'd be canceled for lack of funding
They could easily tell BET not to air their commercials during the time the show is being aired. They probably feel that they do not want to alienate their CORE supporters and perhaps their CORE supporters do not feel the same way about Michael Vick and what he did as the rest of the majority of America.
