The Bush In 30 Seconds ad contest held earlier this month resulted in the winning 30 second entry Child’s pay that was supposed to be aired during the Super Bowl today.

MoveOn has posted the following information about the CBS refusal to run the ad:

Even if CBS won’t air the ad, we’re not going to let that stop us. During the Super Bowl half time show, at 8:10 and 8:35pm EST switch over to CNN to watch the ad CBS won’t air. And let us know you’re joining the one-minute boycott
