One day, about a week before the election, I was at home watching the 5 o'clock news,and of course all the political ads were on, and they were annoying as usual. One ad for Romeny lying about whatever regarding obama, the very next for obama, lying about whatever regarding romney. But then a Super Pac ad came on and it was showing dead fetuses and loudly proclaiming that Obama is a baby killer. For me, this was way over the line. What if I had children sitting next to Me? And it made me think about the Truth in Advertising law. Kellogg's cant run ads saying Corn flakes cures cancer because it's simply not true. Why don't political ads have to abide by the same laws? They are Advtisments. I see that the ads approved by the candidates try to abide by those rules by citing wherevere they got their info, but these Super Pac ads where one guy, or group of people just buy ad time and say whatever they want should have to Abide b the Truth in Advertising law. And Some decency as Well. Calling the President a baby killer and showing dead fetuses during dinner time is disgusting and uncalled for.
