Best negative ad of the cycle?

Again, from the new Florida district 18 house race between Allen West and Patrick Murphy…

Also – honourable mention to the new McCaskill ads for Missouri Senate going after Akin and those legitimate rape comments:

While the Missouri Senate race is still close enough for some Republicans to hold out hope that embattled nominee Todd Akin can overcome his “legitimate rape” comments, a series of devastating ads released today serve as a reminder that the situation is probably terminal.

The three 30-second spots from Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill, who leads by six percentage points in the two most recent public polls, feature highly personal testimonials from survivors of sexual assaults.

The spots are powerful, and with two of the women identifying themselves as pro-life, aimed squarely at constituencies Akin cannot afford to lose.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
