Last week, a super PAC called Restore our Future purchased $7.2 million worth of ads to run during this summer’s London Olympics—and we know more are coming. The Games are about national unity and fair competition; special interest negative ads are about division, half-truths, and unfair play. These ads have no place during the Olympics.
Let’s stop these negative ads from ruining the Olympics. Broadcast airwaves are owned by the public and leased to stations like NBC to create programing in the public interest. We have the final say in how they should be used. In the past, networks have set up special “no advocacy ads” policies during events like the Super Bowl. If enough of us raise our voice, we can pressure NBC to make the same commitment.
