(This is an introduction to a longer examination I intend to publish next week. )
If you look at the political advertising on Democratic/Left Political Blogs, including DemDaily, there are few ads from Candidate Campaigns. Only the largest sites, Dkos, MyDD, Atrios etc. draw a few short ad placements from the largest campaigns. You seldom, if ever, see a direct Campaign ad purchased at here at DemDaily or most blogs.
Did you see the Obama ad that ran here for a few days? If you looked closely it was running as a result of a Google Adwords campaign. It earns DemDaily nearly nothing.
Whether it’s for the Presidential, Congressional, State Legislature, Local seats, we see that candidates are spending their money everywhere but the one place that supports them most directly?
If Blogger Owners and Writers, at great personal and financial expense, are providing Democratic efforts at all levels a very viable campaign platform, why aren’t the Candidates using and supporting the resource?
I’ll examine the topic in more depth next week. Your views would be appreciated.
