Today's Influence Ads: A Valentine's Treat from the Confectioners

It's Valentine's Day and the day after President Obama released his budget, and today's print influence ads -- as compiled by Kantar Media's Campaign Media Analysis Group -- certainly reflect that. 

The National Confectioners Association has a new ad touting the benefits of the confectionery industry, saying: "It's Valentine's Day. We vote that you indulge in spontaneity tonight. Table the tablets, immobilize your mobile devices, and pick up a box of chocolates for someone you care about."

As today's Washington Eye shows, the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association, American Petroleum Institute, First Focus Campaign for Children, Lockheed Martin, the Nuclear Energy Institute, Oxfam America, the United Egg Producers/Humane Society and United Technologies have new ads.

Other ads come from the Ad Council/Humane Society/Maddie's Fund, Allstate, the American Beverage Association, the American Medical Association, the American Public Transportation Association, America's Natural Gas Alliance, Boeing, CTIA, GE, Goldman Sachs, Institute for Economic Empowerment of Women, the International Council of Shopping Centers, Southern Company and Triwest Healthcare Alliance.
