Poll question: Debate: Draft new law establishing FCC licensing requires free political ad time.
Merits?
Flaws?
Regulations?
The joys of dish soap bubbles?

Discuss.

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

1. I like the idea but not the witless choices.

2. the poll is essentially meaningless. but please, expound what you like about the idea.
and how would you restrict it, so as to prevent election years from being utterly festooned in political advertisements from top to bottom for 12 months.

3. I also like the idea of limiting the election season to 6 months as opposed to the current...
...12 years.

4. Radio or TV doesn't run on free. And election time revenue is huge.

5. Clarify the suggestion,
which, in its current form, makes no sense.

6. So people who want to run a political ad can just take over a broadcast
outlet for that ad?

Will you let the pols take over newspapers and magazines for ads as well?
