CBS not to run "Child's work"?

by Volker Weber

Ad age has this story about the winner of the Bush-in-30-Seconds contest:

Liberal activist group last night announced it has chosen an anti-President Bush ad to air ahead of next week's "State of the Union" address and said today it is negotiating with CBS to gain airtime on the Super Bowl.

A spokesman for CBS said the Viacom-owned network has received the request from MoveOn to run the ad in the Super Bowl, but added that the ad has to go through standards and practices before CBS will say if it can run an advocacy ad during the game. The spokesman said he didn't think it was likely that the spot would pass standards and practices.

Dan Gillmor has excellent comments.
