You know this is just going to get people here looking up ashleymadison just to see what it's about.
According to the wiki the site is "Ashley Madison is an online dating service and social network service marketed primarily to people who are already in a relationship. The website was launched in 2001.
The problem may be that it doesn't specifically say "MARRIED" but in a relationship. Not all relationships are marriages.
As for the advertising - you might want to consider contacting sirius to find out who is actually in charge of selling advertising blocks.
if it's anything like regular radio the contracts aren't always with the "radio shows" but with the networks. In regular radio that is often a mix of contracts of both local (contracted with the station) and nation-wide (contracted with the network).
In satellite radio i can understand where you'd assume that say "The Math Channel" might specifically handle their own contracts but, a quick look at Sirius suggests that the contracting may also include contracts with the system itself not just the specific channel.
So you might want to shoot them an email at their contact page to find out who really authorized the advertising.
Although I personally scoff at MSNBC and CNN for political reasons... I would still suggest finding out if it's something they personally authorized or something they cannot directly control
