SuperBowl Ad Madness at $3 Million and 30 Seconds On Sunday, the Pittsburgh Steelers will play the Arizona Cardinals in this year's SuperBowl . Viewership may be lower than usual but, despite the failing economy, advertising will cost more than ever, up to $3 million for 30 seconds of airtime. One 90-second spot will be in 3-D .

One immediate question: is “hate speech” protected by the First Amendment?
