Political ads are a bipartisan folly
Once again it is election season, and once again the social/traditional media outlets are drowning in a sea of drivel and babble – aka political ads.
This is a bipartisan embarrassment. The needs of the citizens to be knowledgeable and informed are not being met by any party.
Aside from that issue, consider the horrendous waste of capital, both monetary and intellectual. We are expected to see and listen to insipid, inane, paternalistic and sophomoric ads as an aid in our decision-making process. That is folly, as the ads all share the same pedigree – spin, half-truths and bias.
My fellow citizens, there must be a better way!
