You've seen advertisements many times that attack a person's character or honesty. And now that we're less than a month away from the general election in November, it's only going to increase.
Some residents say the frequency of the ads may get a little annoying, but they say what's worse is the mudslinging.
"There are on a little too much because like I said I'm not going to base my decision on it because I don't know which side of the story to believe because nine times out of ten they're saying that this person is bad for Mississippi but every candidate has good qualities," said Meridian resident, Ollie Brown.
"The one thing I don't like about them is when they attack each other," said Sherry Turbyfill of Collinsville. "I think they should be able to tell things about themselves personally and their accomplishments, but I get turned off when they start attacking the other opponents."
WTOK's General sales manager, Jim Briggs, agrees people are interested in the issues and not the attacks.
"From an advertising standpoint, people are much much more interested in the messages that people have to communicate, where they stand on certain issues and positions versus the mudslinging," Briggs said. "I think after a while it kind of goes in one ear and out the other."
