I find this so incredibly offensive, especially since the ads often surround news analysis shows where multiple points of view are expressed. If networks are mere corporate tools, then they shouldn't portray their positions as neutral.

Big Oil pays for the best government that corporate dollars can buy. It pays for the two party system, both parties, the candidates, the debates, and it blocks third parties from having meaningful access to ballots, events, and media. So, it comes as no surprise then, that Big Oil wants to fill out minds with toxic disinformation. After all, no one in their right mind would stand by and do nothing while something so evil was in the process of killing all life on this planet...unless they had been distracted by disinformation and fake choices for "the lesser of two evils"...especially not when there are alternatives that the corporate powers don't want you to see. Vote good. Vote life. Vote green.

Living here in Texas where Rick Perry keeps trying to tell us how good all these oil and coal projects are for us., and Gregg Abbot wasting millions to sue the EPA and everyone else it's really bad. What's worse is the people who will be hurt the worst believeing all this bunk. We don't need to see ads helping themin their delusions

signed. Just love those BP sponsored commercials for "visit Louisiana" You know damned well they are doing it to appease someone and not out of the goodness of their oily little hearts. But, Hitler (I hate to admit it) WAS right.. about repeating a lie often enough, people will believe it.
People really need to pack handguns if only to take the tv outside and shoot the damned thing during election times. It would sound like one big 4th of July! Independance Day for anyone remaining sane.

The media is owned by Murdock and friends. They are part of the current system of misinformation. that is where they want to take away the free internet. They want to control all avenues of information.
