Should news networks have to disclose how much advertising revenue they bring in from each political candidate?Thursday, August 18th, 2011
It would seem there is definitely an incentive for many major news networks to play soft ball with the president because he will have a billion dollars in the bank to advertise with next year.
Media outlets make money selling advertisements.
What do you think?
@fush ya……."Shouldn’t people be smart enough to see it themselves?"
I don’t know about "should", I just know what people currently are. Uninformed and getting manipulated on a daily basis is the tip of the iceberg. The news media is only perpetuating the problem.
The more transparency the better. The system is getting more opaque by the minute…especially since that supreme court ruling about campaign finance and the removal of McCain-Feingold.
