Should news networks have to disclose how much advertising revenue they bring in from each political candidate?

Question by For Your Information: Should news networks have to disclose how much advertising revenue they bring in from each political candidate?
It would seem there is definitely an incentive for many major news networks to play soft ball with the president because he will have a billion dollars in the bank to advertise with next year.

Media outlets make money selling advertisements.

@fush ya…….”Shouldn’t people be smart enough to see it themselves?”

I don’t know about “should”, I just know what people currently are. Uninformed and getting manipulated on a daily basis is the tip of the iceberg. The news media is only perpetuating the problem.

Why do local television networks spend so much time each day advertising their news shows.?

Question by hazzard: Why do local television networks spend so much time each day advertising their news shows.?
They could use that time to report more news throughout the day. I think it is because they are more concerned about commercial revenue than keeping the pubic as informed as possible. What do you think.

A lot of them will do that to create a buzz and hopefully attract some people to watch their show. Sometimes, they even have a small ‘news break’ where they will only give you the main headline of the story, but not anything else about it so you have to come back and watch if you want to know what it is about (such as what normal household chemical could be compromising your health? Find out with news at 10).
Just like everything else in the world it has become extremely commercialized.
