Well, I looked into it a little more and it sorta makes sense now. freecreditreport.com itself is indeed a scam, but it's a subsidiary of Experian, so I guess since a reputable company came up with something that should be disreputable, they're able to get all this ad time for it. So that's pretty disgusting- they make a shitload of one-time revenue by scamming people with this thing, and then they continue making money even after people realize it's a scam because they're fucking Experian.
