One Possible Solution to Sleazy Political Ads

September 18th, 2008 | by Tom Harper |

A letter to the editor of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer had a solution to all of these sleazy political ads during the presidential campaign. Basically — nothing. No regulations or restrictions. BUT:

During the presidential debates, all of these commercials and hit pieces would be aired, right there in front of the opposing candidate, the moderators, the audience and millions of TV viewers. And the candidate would have to stand there in front of God and everybody and explain the purpose and meaning of the ad, and why he/she “approved this message.”

How does that sound?

    Brilliant! Simple, and it gives the public credit for more common sense and decency than the campaigns do.
