More on the censored ad saga.


Ya'll remember that ad called Childs Pay that CBS won't air? (follow that link to see it). Well, something has to be said for grassroot-efforts, over the past few days, CBS has received over 340,000 emails and phone calls asking it to stop its censorship. Clearly a huge number of us believe that CBS's refusal to run our Voter Fund ad, while allowing the Bush White House to run an advocacy ad of its own, is just plain wrong.

There's a CBS petition at if you want to make yourself heard.
