Child's Play Runs SUNDAY

CNN to run ad
Not that any of us will be watch the war sublimation game Sunday but

Dear friend of MoveOn,
The CBS networks still refuses to run our winning ad in the Bush in 30 Seconds ad contest during the Super Bowl. The MoveOn.org non-partisan campaign to get CBS to air issue ads continues, but we're not going to let CBS's censorship stop us in the mean time. That's why we're spending over $1 million to air the ad in our swing states and nation-wide on other channels -- starting with two spots on CNN that will air during the Super Bowl half time.

This Sunday, during the Super Bowl half time show, join us in changing channels on CBS. At 8:10pm and 8:35pm EST, switch over to CNN to watch "Child's Pay" on a channel which doesn't censor its ads. We'd like to keep a tally of the number of people who participate -- you can sign up here:

Though I must confess to catching a glimpse of corp media last night, I was pleased to see an actual sound bite discussion about the MoveOn ad and how CBS refused to show it during the "big game". In doing so, most of the ad was shown along with the posting of the question at the end: 'Who will pay for bush's deficit'.........so it is having some play time on the moo media without having to pay for it.
