I used to complain about the number and frequency of campaign commercials on tv in past elections. It used to really get on my nerves when I would see the same commercials over and over again.
But not anymore.
Since acquiring a DVR a few years ago, commercials go by in blissful silence. I don’t think I’ve seen a campaign ad yet this year…from any party or any candidate. Candidates are spending millions on tv commercials…and for that matter newspaper ads which I don’t subscribe to…and their message isn’t getting thru to me. What a waste.
Because like a growning number of Americans, I choose where and how I get my media today. So I ask the candidates, what are you doing to reach me…and others like me? Ya better be online for starters.
I wonder how long it will take til someone successfully runs a virtual campaign for a major office.
