AdBusters TV Spot Ran Crossfire Today? FOX, etal wouldn't air
It's a go: Adbusters' Unbrand America TV Spot is poised to hit the airwaves. We've wrangled a 30-second chunk of national airtime. More than half a million tubes, all ours. Watch it- with everyone else tuned to CNN- Monday, September 22, around 4:30 EST.

To get this far has been serious work. For months we've been stonewalled. Sure, we shopped our Black Spot to the usual suspects at NBC, CBS, ABC, FOX. We even tried MTV. "We don't deal in free speech," chorused the networks. Check out all the sorry details here.

Sadly, the response was expected. In the land of the free, the business of censorship is booming.

Well, Adbusters isn't buying in. Keep your eyes peeled over the next few months. Plans are in the works for a big pushback. The agenda: Media Democracy.
