Political Mudslinging: Bipartisan Ad Spending Seen
According to Media Monitors, mudslinging is a bi-partisan sport.
From August 12-21, the Priorities USA Action PAC ran 3,684 spots against Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump (pictured) on the TV stations monitored by the RCS subsidiary.
But the Super PAC Rebuilding America Now bought 2,242 spots against Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton—a sign that negative advertising is alive and well for both campaigns.
The difference, however, is in the dollars.
