I just remembered that the other incident was a GoDaddy ad that CBS wanted 'toned down'.

Content providers really don't want to lose 14 million customers either. Charlie isn't stupid, in fact he's very intelligent and knows what hes doing. I'm glad he fights the crazy cost increases these little local affiliates are trying to force on dish customers and i'm glad he stood up to AMC and FX. I enjoy my dish bill being as low as it is right now, and lower than my friends who have Direct and cable. I would like my bill to remain as low as it possibly can.

Well, I saw the "exploding soda bottles" ad for SodaStream during the Super Bowl. I wonder what changed or was all this hype based on a fabricated story?

The original ad had a Coke and a Pepsi "employees" watching as their products exploded off the shelves. The replacement ad was just generic bottled soft drinks.

Ad was kinda silly to me. The product will probably be just a niche one that a few will buy.
If I want a coke or pepsi, I'll buy a coke or pepsi. Or maybe an RC cola.
I would expect that most people would react the same as I did and then go out and buy their Coke or Pepsi.

CBS seems to be on a roll. Now they're getting all uppity and hoity-toity about the Grammys.
