Pandora To Use Zip Code To Target Political Ads

MAR 20, 2014 – The online music streaming service Pandora has long targeted users by their musical preferences and zip codes to target musical suggestions and ads, will now be using that same information to sell and target political ads. For instance, if your musical  preference is Toby Keith and your zip code is in a Republican-leaning district, Pandora can sell ads to Republican political ad firms with the selling point they can target likely Republican-voting users.

907 Voters in Virginia Protected Gay’s Inalienable Right To Pursue Happiness

JAN 24, 2014 – Do elections matter? JTMP thinks so, and to prove the point just look at Virginia's 2013 Attorney General election. By 900 people going out and doing their civic duty of voting, thousands of gay Virginians will not get their inalienable civil right to pursue happiness trampled on by a conservative Attorney General. The new progressive Virginia Attorney General, Mark Herring, has announced that he will not defend the state's ban on same-sex marriage. Mark Herring won his election by a mere 907 votes, which shows one not only needs to vote, but also pay attention to your local elections. The Governor often appoints State Supreme Court Justices FOR LIFE, and Attorney Generals can trample all over the rights of gay people if the wrong one is elected. So, JTMP reminds everyone to register to vote, vote in primaries and local elections, and pay attention to these rascals. You would be surprised at how much they influence your life. Read more about Mark Herring's startling announcement on NPR.org here.
