A Matter Of Opinion

Whose ads are negative? Are you positive?

Barack Obama’s assertion during Wednesday’s debate that 100 percent of John McCain’s ads have been negative has been widely disputed. Obama probably was referring to a report from the Wisconsin Advertising Project that documented one week during which all of McCain’s ads were negative — but, of course, Obama didn’t qualify his comment.
For a deeper discussion of the issue of negative campaign advertising, here’s a link to the Wisconsin Advertising Project’s own reaction to Wednesday night’s exchanges.
