Politics As Usual

The Living Room Candidate: Presidential Campaign Commercials 1952-2004 is an innovative online exhibition presenting more than 250 television commercials from every election year beginning in 1952, when the first campaign ads aired, and including ads from this year’s campaign. Users can watch nearly four hours of TV commercials and explore the expanding world of Web-based political advertising. The site includes a searchable database and features commentary, historical background, election results, and navigation organized by both year and theme. Each commercial selected is accompanied by a list of related commercials in order to help guide the viewer through the collection.

I cannot possibly overstate my appreciation of your blogs! Reference central. The subject for Thursday's advertising class is ethics and the 2004 election had some great examples of what I consider extremely misleading ads. I was wondering how hard the ads would be to find online, as I'd like to show them to my class. Thanks for saving me the time and trouble...again!

Always glad to help. I have actually started selecting some sites with Marketing in mind. I will always play to my readership. Between you and Ray, I guess I should select a few Nawlins sites. I know maybe a Voodoo Encyclopedia!
