Why does the US Government allow advertising by CITGO to be aired in the USA?

Question by sfcrdf2002: Why does the US Government allow advertising by CITGO to be aired in the USA?
In the past two days CITGO has placed ads on CNN and Fox News. It angers me that any self respecting commercial TV or cable or Satellite company would accept money from CITGO and air their advertising. I would like to know why our government allows it. Did you ever see any advertising for Cuban Cigars?

Let them waste their money on it, I won’t buy their gas, so who cares.
