    I can't imagine the AARP would endorse that health care plan. Sure it wasn't for something else health-care related?

    Why would the democrat infested AARP not back Obama Care? Are you suggesting Obama care may not be good for our senior citizens? Obama has bought off Big Phamra with promises of extended patents on new drugs and has bought off a couple medical groups with the promise of not cutting government payments for procedures too much. I am sure there is trick he will use to buy off the AARP.

    I saw an ad last night on TV for AARP endorsing Obama's HCR. It talked about people getting misinformation and such.

    Actually here is the ad.

    since when has TV cared about factual claims of a commercial?

    Because the AARP is also infested with old people. And old people, by and large, want no part of this.

    Looks like it IS an AARP ad. Can't imagine a lot of the card-carrying members are real thrilled about this.

    maybe. but the flip side is that while dr pepper or whoever has to show the truth in their advertisting, that doesn't hold with policitcal ads. if this is a political ad from what i understand "factualities" don't matter.

    put both sides down and use a neutral set of rules.
    1) do these tv channels filter *all* their political ads like this?
    2) what are the *facts* in question they want clarified?

    if 1 is yes and 2 is legit - ok.

    if 1 is no, then i hope these stations don't try to proclaim to be neutral.

    it's only a simple request if they make obama clarify points of "fact" also.

    the word "fact" can be so misused and guided in here it's a dangerous game to play. as it stands now it's very biased and while i support obama, i DO NOT support our media doing covert ops for the president.

    on EITHER side.

    that's not their job. if it is then they need to be PR, not a media channel selling ads that fit their agenda.
