Default Selling Out

I meant to post this forever ago, but im lazy...

Recently, John Mellancamp told Rolling Stone that he had sold one of his new songs to a television advertisement because doing so got him more air play than any radio station would. In the article he also mentioned that Tom Petty's most recent release "Highway Companion" was an amazing release that radio stations wouldn't touch.

With more and more radio companies hiring "trend trackers", are televised ad's a freer market than the radio? And if this is the case, should we redefine what many would have once considered "selling out?"
