WWE’s interest in the senate campaign of its former boss, Linda McMahon, continues. The company felt compelled to put this statement out about Chris Murphy’s campaign buying ads during its RAW programming.
It is apparent that the same people who have consistently denigrated and mischaracterized WWE and our family-friendly entertainment for political gain have officially changed their point of view about our content. For the second week in a row, Mr. Murphy’s campaign continues to run advertising in our programming with his new ad airing yesterday at 10:30 p.m. on USA during Monday Night Raw. While the past political rhetoric has been unjust, it pleases us to know that Mr. Murphy recognizes that WWE’s TV programming is a highly effective way to reach families and voters in Connecticut.
Do they look at all their advertisers with this kind of scrutiny?
