Propaganda - lying ads - bottomless pit of money - every ad on during news

No matter how much money we spend how do you fight propaganda with endless pockets. The stations gain money no matter what so the news people become widgets in the mechanism spewing more crap - is is disheartening to know so many are and will be influence by these continuous and repetitive lies.

1. I predict the barage of negative ads will cause tunout to be tiny for mittens

all day every day here in florida its ads from super PACs followed by ads from Obama setting the record straight. I think some people will be so sick of the ads by November that theyll stay home.

2. Living in N.Y, we don't get many adds.

Romney has no chance at all in most blue states. Not much chance in the red states if Fox news ever tell their fox followers Romney is a Mormon.

4. Noise, noise is what it is.

And they still pay billions for it. Look at the Facebook debacle.

5. Just occasionally

I might hear a bit of background music I like so I look up to see whose ad it is just so's I can search tv ad music to see who's playing. That's it.

I've ar least 12 news channels and if ads come on I just change channel. BBC isn't allowed to advertise anyway.

6. I've got Charter.

For a couple years now. I cannot watch anything. There was a period of a couple years where I could still watch stuff because it was not familiar yet, but that passed away some time ago, and now I watch for a few minutes, anything, it doesn't matter much, and I have to shut it off because it is just too trite/boring/stupid/other-pejorative-of-your-choice. And that is not even considering the commercials.

7. Its different here

Choice of numerous channels on Freeview digital and a truly Micky Mouse number on either Sky satellite or Virgin cable. Both of the latter two have got digital harddrives too and as such I can see tv advertising falling by the wayside. eventually - ads would be out of date too soon.

10. florida - every commercial break - 2 against (with lies) one pro obama

I guess if you are in a blue state you just aren't inundated like florida - this went on all through the primaries and now more - not sure what the fall will bring - maybe no tv shows and just ads since the networks just want money
