TKC QUESTION: WILL POLITICAL ADS RUIN KANSAS CITY CHIEFS SUPER BOWL?!?



The big game is nothing more than a big commercial and this election year politics takes center stage and threatens to eclipse the return to glory for the Kansas City Chiefs.

To wit . . .

WILL PREZ TRUMP REELECTION AND IMPEACHMENT FIGHT OVERSHADOW SUPER BOWL GLORY?!?!?

To be fair, as we noted last night, the Chiefs seem to be enjoying some Red State love given a great deal of acrimony targeting "Nancy Pelosi's 49ers" but the reality is that the big audience for the big game is a target for American political pandering . . . Here are a few more news links on the topic that make this contest less fun for the people who watch it for the commercials . . . Check the link line-up from "many sides" of the debate . . .


Super Bowl Attention Grab

Some Super Bowl advertisers concerned Trump, Bloomberg ads could steal their thunder

Earlier this week, President Donald Trump's campaign told email subscribers that they'd get a sneak peek at his $10 million Super Bowl ad if they got in touch via text.


Senator Ted Cruz Loves The Kansas City Chiefs

At the Whitney Art Party, New Hollywood, the NFL, and Trump-Era Politics Collide

The actor Julia Fox has been to the Whitney Art Party a few times before. The museum's annual fundraiser is historically a regular stop, she said, for her and her friends in the New York art world.


GOP Establishment Take The Field Amid Impeachment

Republican group launches ad campaign calling for witnesses in impeachment trial

An anti-Trump group of Republicans will be running an ad campaign calling for witnesses in the Senate impeachment trial starting Thursday morning. Republicans for the Rule of Law have funded three ads that will air dozens of times in the D.C.


Tenuous Democratic Party Impeachment Analogy

The Referees Have Taken Trump's Side

Shanahan: Besides, the parade is Tuesday. I want this over with before the parade. Reid: Are you guys out of your minds? Shanahan: This whole game is a hoax anyway, Andy. A lot of people are saying so. We shouldn't have to play. We haven't done anything wrong.


Sporting Chance?!?!

Consumers Say Presidential Campaigns Shouldn't Advertise in the Super Bowl

This year's Super Bowl will include something new: national presidential campaign ads. But a new poll suggests a strong majority of Americans would prefer that it didn't. President Trump and former New York City Mayor and presidential hopeful Michael Bloomberg have confirmed they will each run minutelong commercials during the Super Bowl seeking support in their 2020 presidential campaigns.


Social Media Running Game

Trump campaign runs hundreds of misleading Facebook ads warning of Super Bowl censorship

President Donald Trump's reelection campaign has run more than 200 misleading political advertisements on Facebook in the past day claiming the "Fake News media" will attempt to block the campaign's upcoming Super Bowl ad - despite federal regulations that require the TV spot be aired.

There will be more political ads this year than every before but I don't think that will ruin it. Instead, it will give people a real chance to go to the restroom without missing anything good.

^^^ Truth!

Not so sure about that last link. Actually, the debate about censorship in the Super Bowl is right on the money and needs to be addressed. Republicans couldn't get away with the kind of attacks that Bloomberg is running.

Gee said...

^^^ Maybe but they're not effective, won't help the candidate and only serve to rally his base. Going negative is always a sign of desperation.

The rally on Friday afternoon at P&L is really a MAGA rally since everyone is going to be dressed in red.

Commercials have made watching television a frustrating experience. Commerical breaks used to be 59 seconds, now they can be five minutes. It's hard to ignore them because they are always louder than the program.

If I watch the game, it won't be to see the new commercials. That's just dumb.

You lefties are always frustrated. Has nothing to do with commercials.

Byron, you’re such a dolt. A welfare-cheating dolt. Commercials are almost always 30 seconds, sometimes 60. They are never 5 minutes. You’re too broke to buy anything so you’re no one’s target audience.

When is Tony going to start covering more about Rep. David's vote for impeachment? Had Yoder still been in office, the media scrutiny he would have received for voting "no" would have been overwhelming. David's vote is accepted by local media and is a non-story. She needs to be held accountable!!!!
