Campaign season is in full swing, especially in key states, where residents may see twelve political campaign ads in an hour of television viewing—many of them attack ads aimed at the sponsoring party's opponent. It is estimated that in 2012 $3.5 billion will be spent on political advertising.

Sarah van Gelder, YES! Magazine's executive editor, was interviewed on Free Speech TV's new show Occupy the Media about the effects of Citizens United on corporate spending, political advertising, and what it all means for the 99 percent.
