The hypocrites at Time Warner Cable, the most hated cable provider in the nation, bans some gun ads -- but not violent gun-action killer movies

Hypocrites and Douchebags – What a combination …

The hypocrisy …

Time Warner Cable Bans Some Gun Ads

Just weeks after the mass shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., Time Warner Cable has initiated a companywide ban on certain gun ads.

"We no longer accept ads showing semiautomatic weapons and guns pointed at people,” Time Warner Cable said in a statement. “We stand by this policy. If it's essential to a business owner to show this kind of imagery in their commercials, there are other advertising options in the marketplace."

The TWC ban comes also comes shortly after sports network the Sportsman Channel came under fire for running a National Rifle Association ad that called the president an “elitist hypocrite” for coming out against an NRA proposal to put armed guards in elementary schools while his teenage daughters are protected by armed Secret Service guards.

The 18 Most Hated Companies In America

You are not the only person who hates Bank of America, American Airlines and Time Warner.

We've updated our list of the worst companies on the American Customer Satisfaction Index, which gives remarkably accurate ratings based on thousands of surveys. The most-hated list hasn't changed much since June, because the companies rated since then are in the well-liked durable goods industries.

#3 Time Warner Cable

#3 Time Warner Cable

Satisfaction rating: 59/100

Time Warner has been a public relations disaster for at least a decade. Blunders include usage caps, fees increasing each year faster than inflation and fraudulent business acts and bad services. In June 2011, a lawsuit was filed against Time Warner for refusing to make closed captioning available on CNN's online videos after being notified by disgruntled consumers. Recently it also aired pornography on children's channels.

For a long time, cable companies in general lacked incentives to improve their customer satisfaction, as they enjoyed sole franchise agreements in many cities. With competition from satellite companies, they are being forced to address service issues — but they have a ways to go.

Time Warner has decreased two points since the previous year.

Bottom line …

How do you separate a 60-second advertisement from a hour-long celebration of gun violence and mega-death – and then have the balls to ban the advertisement and say nothing about the infinitely more destructive and repetitive content you are showing?
