And much more just for you.
So listen tomorrow at www.surgeradio.co.uk.
The Campaign for President of the United States is on the way. The Republican Primaries are gaining momentum with South Carolina just being a short time away.
The biggest difference is the campaign financing. Since 21 January 2010 following the supreme court ruling Citizens United v. Federal Elections Commission, where it was decided that money equals speech, so called Super PACs can now run political Ads. The difference to previous campaign financing is that donations to Super PACs are unlimited. By law they are not able to communicate with the candidate they are supporting facing jail if they do. But this is not really perfectly honest. Comedians Stephen Colbert who thinks of running for president and Jon Stewart who runs “his” Super PAC show what “not coordinating” really means:
Daily Show 17/01/12 Colbert Super PAC coordinating
But the republican race is an easy catch for most of the comedians in the US. In particular the Late Night Shows are going for the past of Mitt Rommney, leader in the race so far. When he ran for Gov. of Massachusetts he introduced legislation that built the foundation for the health care reform of Obama. Fox News does not like the mocking of republican candidates because they think all the media has a liberal bias. Well, all seems to be relative to your point of view:
Bill O’Reilly 13/01/12 All a big joke
I am very interested what happens next in South Carolina and I recommend to you watching the Daily Show and the Colbert Report. Unfortunatly this is impossible in England because Channel 4 has the rights. But you can at least watch the Global Edition Mondays on More4 and on 4oD.
