Clay for the marketers.

Where there's money to be made, there's data for the trade.

Read the Rules

Stuart Ingis, a lawyer for the Digital Advertising Alliance, an industry group, said that voter file targeting is a First Amendment issue, and that targeting should be protected as part of political speech.

"These technologies provide a method for politicians inexpensively to improve our democracy," he said. "I would say that the founding fathers firmly believed in the ability — I think our society very much values the ability — to efficiently reach a desired audience with a political message."


Which is exactly how they intend to play it.

Regulation for me but not for thee.

" I think our society very much values the ability — to efficiently reach a desired audience with a political message."

This to me, drives the kind of polarity that FLAKESnews has already created.

As if it isn't polarizing and flaky enough already.

I agree. It's disturbing as hell.

I think he's talking about the society of folks like Koch Industry.

Most of the flesh and blood people I talk to, are sick and tired of it.

The way that it is being used, and especially during this last election---it's pretty much anyone. It's very creepy.

Election?

Yeah, I remember the robocalls, but the ads and political links I see on the internet even now are pretty creepy too.

Most are delivered by Google and a few others.

Who's buying and selling all of that?

Is there ever a time when you hide your prodigious partisanship under the bed or something, even for a little while?

You should create a life, less agenda driven.
