Obama Makes a Shrewd Ad-Buy
This week Obama ads began running on the only Progressive Talk station in the state of Ohio, WVKO 1580 AM, in Columbus. Advertising during Progressive Talk programming is smart. The audience is almost exclusively registered, energized Democratic voters and such ad-buys support content that supports Dems.
Democratic voters put alot of stock in what they hear on Progressive Talk shows with hosts such as Rachel Maddow, Ed Schultz, Stephanie Miller and RFK, Jr.
There have been Democratic Presidential ads from both Obama and Clinton on at least two Clear Channel right-wing stations (that I know of). Why? Why pay for your own swift boating and support stations that force feed people with the likes of Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and Bill O'Reilly? Right-wing radio is a major frame creator, and the corporate media mindlessly follows.
Bottom-line: Democratic candidates should battle it out on local stations that Grassroots Dems listen to.....doing so effectively feeds the goose that lays golden eggs.
