Only two years until my coronation as President. In celebration of that mark I’d like to introduce a new Phil Law. The new law is in regards to the quarterly State of The Union address and political ads. I believe that the Presidential State of The Union broadcasts should only be broadcast on one channel and never during the prime time viewing hours between 8:00 pm and 11:00 pm. With all the options available on cable television no one who doesn’t want to watch the broadcast does anyway, so why disrupt our favorite shows? That only serves to make us angrier at the President. To be fair to everyone the broadcast could take turns, rotate through the major networks. Also, for those that don’t have cable television, unless they just want to turn their t.v. off and spend the evening like Amish families, they’re stuck watching the President drone on. Of course when I am President you can bet that my State of The Union adresses will be a lot more entertaining than any previous President.
As for the time of the broadcast? Put it on during the evening news. That will be the next days top story anyway, so why not just make it that nights live news?
I also believe that political ads should not be aired during family shows or childrens shows. Our children will have enough time to learn that politicians aren’t trustworthy, why cram it down their throats every 8 minutes during Dancing With The Stars and Spongebob?
