    Couldnt think of 75 million going on a billion better reasons to move to public finance...  besides all of the real policy we would get if we did of course.

      Imagine if all those money is being spend on building Party media aparatus, instead of fattening up network television and corporate media.

      HAH...

      And imagine if the entire cycle, about $2-300M is being used to fund party media equipments and strategy.

      ... something is seriously wrong. we are donating money for candidate to buy crappy ads on TV that nobody watch and fattening up Republican TV executives.

      •  Party media apparatus? (0+ / 0-)

        Not sure what you mean. The DNC should have its own broadcasting network??

          ..but definitely something to reduce the cost of modern campaign.

          I mean, things like Fox news will bound to happen again in the future. Even more brutal.

          I guess what I am trying to get, there should be a form of media channel that can be used on the cheap by competing candidates to reach registered democrats.  (oh I don't know, volunteer network of WiFi radio, homemade citiwide wireless... paper boys route...)

          This could also be usefull to tell democrats side of story. Instead of corporate media site of story.

          Bottom line a strategy to counter FoxNews/Rush Limbutt. It doesn't have to be grand strategy. but some experimental network in urban area first.

          Then work to college campuses, then rural small cities.
