We will be inundated with numerous ads in the coming year and a half. Would LOVE ads to be minimized but not sure how your accomplish this without a dvr.
What a waste of funds, thinking about many many charities that could use these funds!

They do not and are so annoying. I agree that the money could help so many in this world and serve a better purpose.

We like to think we are immune but, we are not.

When you say year and a half I believe you are talking about the election. As to ads your thought actually applies to all advertising.

As to using a DVR to escape advertising. You actually, even if you/I don't want to admit it see the ads as they race by. I will confess to doing a rewind to see what Home Depo, or Lowes is pushing in stuff I am interested in. This time of year garden stuff. I will tell the truth. Once they have you in the store, do you ever leave with only the item you responded to the ad for?

As to charities. You will be shocked as to what some charities eat up in overhead. What they pay to managers, trips to Vegas for the charity convention etc etc etc

Really old story. We for years bought TV Guide(television guide) through the boy scouts. We felt good giving to the boy scouts. It actually cost a little more than we could have purchased the same thing for elsewhere. After several years I checked, the scouts received a penny or two for allowing the subscription service to use their name.

Absolutely dreading the next 18 months of political ads. About time to turn to streaming.

I don't see the connection between multiple ads and money for charity. Most ads are paid for by companies who make a profit and pay taxes. They wouldn't buy the ads if it didn't increase their profits. I wouldn't be in favor of requiring profitable companies to divert their advertising budget to charity.

We have a saying in my old country; “Good wine needs no advertisement.” I use google and reviews to decide. If someone or something advertises a lot, I wonder why? What’s wrong with it?

I don't really watch much TV at all. I have an ad-blocker on my web browser, and I put any "card stock" that comes in the mail, directly into the recycle bin without looking at it. Since I'm registered as "unaffiliated," I rarely get any targeted ads, because they're looking to target mostly Democrats and Republicans - and I'm neither. Anyone knocking on my door looking to tell me about their campaign is sternly invited to get off my property before I call the police and press charges for trespassing. It keeps them from coming back for round 2.

I submit we are not the demographic that the ads are directed to. Those generations behind us make decisions on sound bites and the shorter the better. They will look to their phones and tablets since they don't watch a lot of television but television will still be used just in case the target demographic is watching, especially at a sports bar or other group gatherings. We are just a casualty of their marketing....and that can be political or toothpaste.
