Political Ads

This is a little outdated now but you should definitely go listen to this NPR article.  It’s an interview with two guys whose job is to make negative political ads.  It’s fascinating to hear them say the same phrase in several different ways.  It made me realize how easy it is to be manipulated.  The funniest part is at the very end – you’ll never think about Humpty Dumpty the same again.
