    Wow, I can't believe America rejected these(!)

    They're very good adverts though.
    Have you read up on how they rejected them?

    Maybe it's been filtered out as spam?

    I think my adblocker must be filtering them out or something.

    Why would they be expected to accept them, though?

    It's a form of censorship.
    And I was saying it in jest.
    Can you answer your own question, because I am actually interested in hearing what the answer is.

    I wouldn't have expected the US to accept them, and as far as I'm aware no other airport has.

    I was under the (mistaken) impression that it was a government "can't have that" thing.

    love the ads, but can't really call it hypocritical since its not state television
    Unfortunatley it is, russia today was set-up as a pro state network by the Kremlin.

    Back on topic, I can see why these would be censored here, especially the terror one. We hold our soldiers in high regard and comparing them to a terrorist even in the obama admin would be like pouring napalm on a fire...

    I'm not sure what reason we would have to put these in our airports. Especially that first one with the president's face behind the president of Iran and the one with the solider. It wouldn't go down too well over here. Although I will say the ads are creative and makes you think.

    Clever and provocative, I think the ak47 vs camera and protestor vs policeman are the most relevant. Mass media = weapon of mass suggestion.
