    But if everyone had an ad blocker and they all blocked 100 percent of the ads, there wouldn't be much left to browse, at least not without paying.

    Ads are only effective if you click on them. That is the only way they make money. How many people willingly click on the ads?

    More than would be clicking on ads that weren't there! Certainly enough to keep ads an integral part of any media company's internet strategy.

    Don't fall into the "I don't do X, therefore nobody does X" logical fallacy. The world is full of people more gullible and less knowledgeable than you or me. They are the targets of advertising -- the lowest common denominator. The birth rate of suckers hasn't slowed.

    I would be fine with just ads. It's the secret tracking and spying that is the problem. These ad companies are getting more in bed with Facebook.

    ABP blocker works great on my Firefox and Chrome browsers..Dont get those hot topic political ads from any side and other local ads that follow me after Google searches anymore.

    Dont do much on FB as I check in quickly on some friends and relatives so I dont get hot over any ads that sneak through APB.I just move on.

    Of course I train APB to let ads on Forums like this to support the forums and other sites I support.

I knew congress repealed fairness doctrine around 1987-1988 when these shows came out.

    And yes Jim Jones of Jonestown used to have a show of KFAX Radio in San Francisco and he was the most politically polarizing person in the 1970's.

    I'm not sure how Facebook, Twitter and YouTube can even enforce Fairness Doctrine given that they are currently investigation for antitrust though in congress

    All this argument does is make the " Politically Polarizing" people move their content operations to gab, bitchute and others

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MeWe_(social_media)

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Friendica

    So far I heard of the right moving their content to gab and bitchute once certain right wing pundits on youtube ranted that they were allegedly being "censored" by Youtube, facebook and Twitter.
    I used too watch Morton Downey Jr on flagship WWOR Ch9 NYC back then when it came out. .Did not know much about Wally George since he did not get any national attention like Morton did with syndication until the internet came out and Wally's videos popped up on Youtube .

    As of today They probably will be stifled online.Glad to see their shows still on YouTube..........

    Brighteon com is another video site that people are moving over to because of censorship.

    Facebook ads are targeted and show up on your feed,so ad blockers do not work. The Russian troll farm was spending $1,250,000 a month during most of 2016 to glorify Trump, demonize Hillary, convince blacks to stay home, young people to vote for Jill Stein, Jews to vote for Trump because Hillary stole the nomination from Bernie,working mothers vote for Hillary by TEXT MESSAGE, Latinos vote Wednesday so they have time to change the voting machines to Spanish. The indictment against the Russians is stunning, makes you wonder why almost all the conservative talkers parrot Kushner "The Russians bought a few Facebook ads - so what?

    Let's keep this in proportion. The 2016 federal election expenditures were at least $6.5 billion.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...=.4a5e27ed3592

    Against about $10 to $12 million alleged against the Russian trolls and related parties. Do the percentages and don't forget where the decimal point goes.

    To cite one comparison, Safelite, the auto glass replacement company, spends three times as much annually on their advertising.

    Proctor & Gamble spent $7.1 billion last year on advertising.

    Illegal and improper? Yes, if proven.

    Significant when compared to the overall campaign expenses? No.

    $1 million a month (the alleged expenditure) does not buy much in media reach and frequency today, particularly if your target is every person in the US of voting age.
