Chevrolet will use this month's World Series to launch ads for the debut of the Volt plug-in hybrid sedan, General Motors Co.'s marketing chief Joel Ewanick said.Each 30 second World Series TV spot will cost between $250-285,000. So, as Henry Payne says, "Government Motors will use taxpayer money to buy premium ad time to pitch a money-losing, taxpayer-subsidized, Washington-approved, green automobile to America’s upper-class green snobs." And that's assuming (dubiously) electric cars really are "green." The next stop for subsidies, btw, is China. All of which is why we need to get the government out of "Government Motors."
The ads will be part of a broad campaign that Chevrolet will initiate during Major League Baseball's fall classic and run throughout autumn, said Ewanick, who spoke on the sidelines Thursday of the Rainbow PUSH auto summit in Detroit. . .
News Corp.'s Fox is carrying the World Series on television. Ewanick . . . said he expected Chevrolet to be one of the largest advertisers during the games. GM also plans to resume advertising during the 2011 Super Bowl.
Can someone explain how Obama's economic policies benefit average Americans?
