16. Granted. But let's look at other examples of undo influence supporting republican candidates.

Dark money buys ads to run every 15 mins on iHeart's nationwide network. Running MUST play ads.

And let's not forget FOX which allows Trump and others to call in and get on the air in the middle of live programming.

Over the years certainly, since Reagan the republicans have been stacking the deck to ensure themselves with overwhelming advantages in every election.

It's not just in the realm of advertising but they are stacking the federal courts to ensure their advantages in court decisions.

McTurtles denial of Merrick Garland's due process in the Senate for an open SCOTUS seat.
Kavanaugh's questionable appointment to yet another SCOTUS seat.

Republicans don't want to compete fairly they want to deny opponents any reasonable advantage they might have.
Think of the SwiftBoating of John Kerry a decorated Vietnam veteran. And in current news Trump's demands to ID the whistleblower so he/she can be attacked.
