You couldn’t throw the commodity of your choice into a distant trashbin without hitting someone who’d like air time during the Super Bowl. This crop of buyers includes MoveOn, which wants to run an ad that points out who’s going to pay for the deficit in the federal budget. (CBS has also refused to air an ad from PETA.)
Why would CBS refuse to air a paid ad that doesn’t contain nudity, prohibited words, or positive messages about genocide? It might be because they seek favor from the party in power.
I think I’ll stop there. The more I poke around the net for links and information, the more I see that the fact of CBS refusing MoveOn’s ad is getting plrenty of coverage—on the web, at least. I’ve finally found one piece that has a quote from someone at CBS who claims they’re not taking sides.
I could say more, but I need to get some paying work done.
