Cost of Political TV Ads
Somehow I got on Jennifer Horn’s spam list. I opened one accidentally today and it contained this nugget:
every $750 donated will buy us one more spot on WMUR; every $150 donated will buy us one more spot on Fox News.
Wow, $750 for, I’m guessing, 30 seconds of airtime. If somebody wants to get rid of ‘money in politics’ they need to stop paying these kind of advertising rates. Hint: Internet. If there needs to be a transition period, buy 10 second TV ads that say, “I’m getting rid of money in politics, visit billmcgonigle.com” or the like.
