Staying out of the political ad flood

The Chamber of Business and Industry of Centre County is out of the election ad fray, as explained in today's column by David Wise.

That applies to other local chambers around the country, as the US Chamber sends money in to influence the message in the election ad flood of 2010.

I'm glad Wise sent the letter and I hope leaders of other local chambers did too.

These ads are flooding the broadcast airwaves in hopes residents vote based on sound bites.

How much money is in play? Nobody knows for sure, ever since the US Supreme Court OK'd the wild west in spending. We'll have a special AP-APME report in Friday's CDT that tracks the money as best we can.
