Pro universal healthcare, control of brokerage firms, fearmongering crime and foreclosure ads, etc..

It almost seems like every 3rd ad on tv or on the radio is from some government office.

I remember seeing and hearing a few of them during the Bush administration but it is getting to the point where it is almost non stop propaganda.

This is not just on the more left leaning channels, there were two of them (health care and banking oversight) during the last commercial break on Fox.

WTF????

Well I am sure glad the government has so much extra cash burning a hole in their pockets that they can blow this kinda scratch on airtime.

Or does the .gov get free airtime (condition of being an FCC licensed broadcaster or something)?

Most of it is from the "useful idiots", AKA Political Action Committies.

I stopped watching TV. Now I have even less incentive to start watching again.

And you wonder why the .gov is subsidizing the digital conversion boxes.

Freedom of the press isn't just freedom to disagree with the .gov.

Haven't seen one, I dont think.

I agree..

Right up to the point where ABC refuses to give equal time at all to dissenting viewpoints on the whole "Obama crams socialized medicine down Americas throat" program.

They won't even sell commercial space.

Freedom of the press is something I m all for.

Collusion of the press and the government to further a specific agenda, I have a problem with.
