So the TV Networks must be salivating over this Extreme Court ruling
Think of all the money they are about to make selling advertising...Newspapers as well. In fact any avenue that we get our news from, that also sells advertising is in line to reap rewards. Do you think any of these sources are going to be going gang busters against this ruling? I am kind of surprised they let Keith and Rachel go on about it like they did..

1. That's right the TV Networks are going to get a windfall
from the SCOTUS ruling.

3. Yes. With more advertising dollars now freed up due to the Supreme Court's ruling,
the networks can raise their prices for ad time.

buying ad space on their own network pushing "candidate a" while not selling ad space to groups endorsing "candidate b". Aren't networks owned by corporations too and now they are people just like you and me, only they have buttloads of cash and own, you know, a tv network.

7. They do that now. They call it "News". Anything other than a "Paid Political announcement".

8. The teevee box as 24-hour spin machine?
"...with a full 15 minutes of regular programming every hour!"
