The Fastest Way To Regulation Comes To Hulu

The WaPo tells us that streaming services have a different standard than broadcast and cable teevee for advertising:

The Disney-backed streaming service Hulu is refusing to run political ads on central themes of Democratic midterm campaigns, including abortion, guns and the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, prompting fury from the party’s candidates and leaders.

The streaming service popular among younger voters, which has a policy against running content deemed controversial, is like other digital providers in not being bound by the Communications Act of 1934, a law that requires broadcast television networks to provide politicians equal access to the airwaves.

If there’s one thing that will get politicians to act, it is them being hindered by any corporate entity when it comes to elections.

“Hulu’s censorship of the truth is outrageous, offensive, and another step down a dangerous path for our country,” the executive directors of the three committees [ed note: The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and Democratic Governors Association], Christie Roberts, Tim Persico and Noam Lee, said in a statement provided to The Washington Post. “Voters have the right to know the facts about MAGA Republicans’ agenda on issues like abortion — and Hulu is doing a huge disservice to the American people by blocking voters from learning the truth about the GOP record or denying these issues from even being discussed.”

…Disney and Hulu declined through a spokesperson a request for comment.

Welcome to regulation, boys.
