- Pity the people of Ohio:
It would take about 80 days of nonstop viewing to see all 58,235 of the typically 30-second Ohio presidential advertisements that have aired in the last month. New York-based Kantar Media’s CMAG compiled for Bloomberg the presidential ads on broadcast TV in Ohio between Sept. 24 and Oct. 24.
It’s official — both Mitt Romney and President Obama have surpassed the $1 billion mark, if you include the campaigns, political parties and super PACs.
- Let's file this one under awkward:
The Seattle Times Co. sponsored political ads in its paper with claims that aren’t entirely true, the Seattle Times reports. If that sounds a little twisted, it is.
- Hurricane Sandy is sounding extremely scary:
Hurricane Sandy may be unprecedented in East Coast storm history
With computer models locked in on the eventuality of a punishing blow for East Coast from Hurricane Sandy (with the latest model runs favoring the northern mid-Atlantic), analyses suggest this storm may be unlike anything the region has ever experienced. [...]
Model simulations have consistently simulated minimum pressures below 950 mb, which would be the lowest on record in many areas.
“MODELS SHOW PRESSURE WELL BEYOND WHAT HAS EVER BEEN OBSERVED NEAR THE NJ/NY COAST (EVEN EXCEEDING THE 1938 LONG ISLAND EXPRESS [HURRICANE])”, writes NOAA’s Hydrometeorological Prediction Center (HPC). [...]
WJLA meteorologist Ryan Miller notes 66,549,869 people live in the National Hurricane Center’s track zone for Sandy. A large percentage of these people will likely contend with tropical storm force winds - 40-60 mph, if not somewhat greater.
- The expression "how the mighty have fallen" comes to mind here:
Former Italian PM Silvio Berlusconi has been sentenced to four years in prison for tax fraud.
- In case you were wondering:
The operator of Japan's quake-struck Fukushima nuclear power plant said on Friday it could not rule out the possibility that it may still be leaking radiation into the sea.
- It's Friday again on the Kagro in the Morning show. Greg Dworkin gave us the daily polling & punditry rundown, then were joined by Andrew Jones (aka sluggahjells) for a wide-ranging discussion of politics & media bubbles. Lastly, the insidious little trick of accounting that's coming into widespread use & lets your boss pocket taxes he's withholding from your paycheck!
