THE SUPER BOWL IS FOR BEER, NOT BUSH....CBS says they won't run the winning MoveOn ad during the Super Bowl:

A CBS spokesman said the decision against broadcasting the spot had nothing to do with either the Super Bowl or the ad's specific issue but was because the network has had a long-term policy not to air issue ads anywhere on the network.

A MoveOn spokesperson said the group hopes to appeal the decision within CBS.

If that's their policy, then that's their policy. But do the other networks have similar policies? And if that's the case, then where do all these PACs and 527s air their issue ads? Only on cable TV?
