John, the TV station has zero interest in the guy that puts the master tapes together. Particularly small stations that can't afford to own the right gear, as in the example in this thread. TV stations are creatures of capitalism, and respond only to money. The advertiser that has contracted with them to run the spots has their undivided attention, because that's who sends the TV station a check. You are a minor annoyance, as the guy at the production company providing the masters. They do not get money from you. They get the advertiser's tape. If you want to get these people's undivided attention, you must work thru the channel they respect and defer to, and that is the advertiser making the time buys.

You don't have to like it. We all have to live with it. They will not pay any attention to your rant for standards and following broadcast legal limits, unless you flash an ID that says you are from the FCC.
