Beer and soda, but not vegetarianism. Anti-HIV and anti-drugs, but not
anti-trillion dollar deficit. These were CBS's editorial decisions for
advertisements to be aired during the Super Bowl yesterday. The decisions
have the affected organizations up in arms over issues central to the
debate between editorial control and freedom of speech on public airwaves.

The broadcasting company also noted that the 30-second spot "raised
significant taste concerns."
