Negative ads hit YouTube: “Hilary Clinton 1984”

March 25, 2007

I saw this negative ad when it was first posted on March 5, 2007. This past week, it was finally revealed that the poster claims to be sympathetic to the Barack Obama campaign, although he’s not affiliated with Obama.

There are all sorts of issues, including copyright ones, raised by the negative ad. I hope to discuss some of them soon.  In the meantime, Wired has some analysis of the negative politics side.
