Super PAC Hypocrisy Political Ad (Proposed)

We see a list of TV shows (and some scenes from them, played with sound used only here and there to accentuate their bias) that push partisan propaganda for the Democratic Party and left-wing political agendas, like news shows on CNN, MSNBC, CBS, NBC, ABC, shows like VeepMadam Secretary, late night comedy shows like The Daily Show with Trevor NoahReal Time with Bill MaherLast Week Tonight with John OliverFull Frontal with Samantha Bee, etc. The announcer says that Democrats control most television and news programming, using it for partisan bias all the time, and that these TV shows have infinitely more influence over people than political ads, and yet Democrats are crying foul over Super PACs that only try in their small, insignificant way to try to level the playing field somewhat for Republicans. TV and news programming are a giant Super PAC for the Democrats, so which side is really enjoying an unfair advantage here? Big moneyed interests make the TV shows and news programming too, and that’s big money in politics. Hypocrisy? Yes; yes it is.

The announcer says Democrats want a monopoly on media spin and partisan messaging, and then they cry foul whenever the Republicans find a way to get their message out or to copy the Democrats’ own tactics. It’s extremely, almost absurdly, unfair.

(Again, I am an Independent, I don’t like either party, and I'm just writing political ads like this as an intellectual exercise, and to show that I can write political ads for both sides.)
