DO NOT watch or listen to any political TV ads.
TV is where big campaign spenders pay to make what’s good for them sound like the common good. Protest all TV and radio stations, newspapers, web sites and magazines that take misleading and unfair political ads. These are usually the negative and contrast ads.
