Have you seen the one with Deval patrick’s face morphed over the John Hancock tower – or the Jeff Perry strip search ad talking about a girls panties – or how about that ubiquitous "keep digging, Charlie" ad - Negative political advertising has been around as long as…well….political advertising. But this year it seems to be particularly chippy out there. So why is that? Are the campaigns tapping into that “voter anger” we keep hearing about? Has spending by third party political organizations set off an advertising “arms race”? Democratic political consultant Michael Goldman, Emerson College Communications professor Dr. Greg Payne, and Vice-Chairman of advertising agency Arnold Worldwide Fran Kelly help us answer these questions and break down some of the more memorable ads this campaign season.
