Negative Campaigning… This Year’s Story

Michael Grunwald notices at the Washington Post that most political ads are extremely negative. Even for American standards that is.

Please read the entire article.

What I noticed was that it started off with 1 1/3 page about Republican ads, then just 2 short paragraphs about Democratic ads, accompanied by the words “Some Democrats are playing rough, too.”

It’s almost like… ‘ah well.. boys will be boys’ when talking about the Democrats but condemning the Republican party on the other hand.

And after those 2 paragraphs? Another 1 1/3 page pointing out how terribly vicious the Republican ads are.

It’s not even close to objectivity.
