"Probably a Gimmick" - Fitness Frenzy


« on: October 06, 2016, 05:13:41 AM »

Clinton is seeking to appeal directly to swing-state voters potentially in the path of Hurricane Matthew and will spend $63,000 to reach Weather Channel viewers there for five days beginning on Thursday, according to a source monitoring TV ad buys. Hurricane Matthew is currently forecast to approach the Florida East Coast late Thursday or on Friday.

It’s a risky proposition. The potential human and economic toll of major storms makes for one of the trickiest decisions of all for presidential campaigns: how to derive political benefit from natural disaster — or simply respond at all — without seeming to exploit real suffering.

Clinton postpones Weather Channel ads in Florida

Source: Politico

Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign said Thursday that it is asking cable systems in Florida not to run its advertisements on the Weather Channel with Hurricane Matthew bearing down on the state — after Republicans seized on the planned ads as opportunistic.

On Wednesday, POLITICO reported, as part of a larger cable-television buy in the battleground states, Clinton’s campaign had reserved airtime on the Weather Channel in a number of states, including $63,000 earmarked for Florida.

“Earlier in the week we made changes to our TV ad reservations across hundreds of stations in several battleground states including Florida,” Clinton campaign spokesman Jesse Ferguson said Thursday. “Less than 1 percent of those changes included the Weather Channel. We have requested that stations in Florida delay any of those ads on the Weather Channel until after the storm passes.”

Ratings for the Weather Channel typically spike during major events, and the potential for the first major hurricane to make landfall in the United States in nearly 11 years should draw more eyeballs to the channel. Both Clinton and Donald Trump have advertised on the channel earlier in the campaign, during more normal weather episodes.

Honestly, this is the name of the game, no matter how deplorable it is. Don't blame the candidates. If the public didn't eat this shit up, it would come to an end. It is the monster the citizenry created. I'm all for campaign limits. The reality is that politicians buy their wins.
