SoFla TV Stations Too Gutless

Here's the TV commercial that our local TV stations refuse to air: even WSVN, home of "if it bleeds it leads" turned it down. 

Shame on WFOR, WSVN, WFLX, WPBG, WPEC, WPLG, WPTV and WTVJ. You're all worthless parasites, if you can't even accept a few dollars to run a commercial that drives home an essential truth: fast food is bad for us.


  1. Loved the video.

    For the networks, it's purely a business decision. They'll never risk losing millions of revenue by offending an advertiser. They'd rather be wealthy and gutless than poor and courageous ("poor." HA!). The Media suck up and just plain suck. What else is new.

  2. I found your blog while looking for gluten free food and beer sources near Ft. Lauderdale. I'm heading south from Indianapolis for my first vacation since going gf over 2 years ago. Do you know where I could grab a six pack of New Grist the day before Thanksgiving? Any fun bars that serve New Grist or Red Bridge?

  3. "Near Ft. Lauderdale" covers a lot of ground; if you narrow it down, I can give you more specific recommendations.

    You can find New Grist Beer in Whole Foods along with Redbridge, the GF beer from Anheuser-Busch; most Publix branches now carry Redbridge, too. You can also find these beers at the Total Wine and Beverage on the 17th Street Causeway.

    Whole Foods, of course, carries a wide selection of GF foods, as does Nutrition'S'Mart in Pembroke Pines. But most Publix supermarkets have a pretty decent selection that grows every time I see it.

    As for bars; I've never found any serving New Grist, but for Redbridge, there's the Village Pump in Lauderdale by the Sea, The Yard House at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale, and Murphy's Law Irish Pub at the Seminole Hard Rock Casino.

  4. I'll be staying in Oakland Park, FL.
    Thanks for the info!
    On our local gf forum someone reported that Publix decided to discontinue Red Bridge at all their stores. Good to know you still find it there. I love Publix.
