CBS, which justified its move earlier this week refusing to accept ads from PETA and MoveOn for airing during the superbowl, by saying they have a clear and long standing practice of not accepting advocacy ads on controversial subjects, will be airing an anti-drug ad put out by the White House.

Both CBS and the White House have mocked MoveOn's equating of the White House ad with the MoveOn ad by asking what could be controversial about an anti-drug ad and what constituency would run a counter ad.

As I recall, past ads in this campaign have equated buying drugs in the street with support of terrorism. No, what could be controversial about that?
