Overall,  the sheer number of Bloomberg commercials has driven me away from TV and YouTube

Missus and I are doing an unscientific survey in NoVA.     Tons of Bloomberg mail with second place to Klobuchar.     I'm hopeful for an envelope with a check.

It’s disgusting seeing someone try to buy the presidency.

In keeping with a long running W. PA tradition, I'd like to announce my vote can be bought.

The Bloomberg speech radio spot almost made me take a hammer to my Accord's infotainment screen this morning.

I watched an entire episode of Community without a Bloomberg commercial. It was bliss.

Who is bloomberg?

I'm lucky--no mailers.  And have been in Florida most of the time so missed the tv and radio ads here.  I think the one down there is mid March.

I can ignore the commercials- it's the unsolicited text messages that piss me off. I've never donated in a partisan race, so I have no clue how they got my number and they send from multiple numbers, so blocking doesn't work

That’s unacceptable. You should call the campaign and threaten to sue. He has lots of money.

There are some exemptions to the Do Not Call rules. Because of the limits to FTC’s authority, the Registry does not apply to political calls

Troll them. Just tell them you have a minimum height requirement for President. Or that you don't vote for Jewish people.

FM-106.7 (The Fan) is absolutely overrun with Bloomberg ads - odd for a station that doesn't run any political or public affairs programming.

None for me as yet either (probably because I'm a federal employee and can't participate in partisan campaigns, so wouldn't appear in the databases of those who would send such mail).

Radio sales people are absolute whores. They will run any ad as long as the person is paying. They've run ads for competitor radio stations before.

You can still get political junk mail sent to your house. All the rules say is that you can't use Federal resources or time to campaign. They can still send crap to your house, unfortunately.

Seriously, I listened to a Redskins game in December. There were five advertisements that played over and over. One was FedEx. One was a terrible Bud Light commercial. The others were local.

One of my clients analyzes tv and radio demographics and proposes time slots and stations to their clients. Suggests that listeners of 106.7 are basically a small cross section of voters (people who just can't not listen to Skins news) who likely won't have their vote swayed by anything short of winning a lap dance.

I mean, listeners to 106.7 are 16-55 year old males. That's their demographic.
