CBS Censors Ads

This is really atrocious, who is CBS to limit free speech? I can understand that CBS is a private company owned by Viacom, so they can do what they please, but advertising and television is just as much a form of speech as print and word of mouth. It’s not an economic reason either, MoveOn has the money to pay for a Super Bowl spot. From MoveOn.org:

During this year’s Super Bowl, you’ll see ads sponsored by beer companies, tobacco companies, and the Bush White House. But you won’t see the winning ad in MoveOn.org Voter Fund’s Bush in 30 Seconds ad contest. CBS refuses to air it.

To check out the ad and ask CBS to air ads like this one, go to: http://www.moveon.org/cbs/ad/
