More fuzzy economics from the White House, according to the Washington Post: "The White House spent nearly $3.5 million to buy two anti-terrorism commercials during Sunday's Super Bowl broadcast on Fox, according to a network source."

I'm not sure how handing a check for $3.5 million to Rupert Murdoch is helping our country during a recession. Besides, there is a system in place for airing these types of messages. They're called Public Service Announcements. (Here's a good description and history of PSAs.) Buying some of the most expensive air time for a 60 second political message is a terrible misuse of tax dollars.
