Today's Influence Ads: Fair Search Asks, 'Can Google Be Trusted?'
In the midst of partisan bickering over the looming fiscal cliff, Fair Search has a positive message for the Hill: bipartisan consensus exists.
The new ad highlights Sens. Herb Kohl, D-Wis., and Mike Lee, R-Utah, who agree with the message that Internet search bias hurts consumers and small businesses. The ad suggests Google biases its search results in favor of its own products.
Chevron is also out with a new ad today emphasizing its commitment to fighting AIDS. And the Republic of China has an ad pushing for Taiwan's participation in United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.
Those with continuing ads, per Kantar Media's Washington Eye, include Accenture, the American Bankers Association, the American Cancer Society, the Council of Fashion Designers of America, Goldman Sachs, the National Fair Housing Alliance, Whirlpool and WTOP-Radio.
