Voters React To Political Advertisments

A tsunami of political ads swamped the airwaves during this mid-term season, partially because of a recent Supreme Court ruling allowing so-called super PACS to raise unlimited funds from corporations, unions and individuals. An analysis by Boston University journalism students reveals a staggering $20 million dollars donated by only ten people. That money represents more than nine percent of the roughly $227 million dumped into campaign war chests. BUTV’s show On That Point reports on the negative, the emotional and the sheer number of these ads.
