I’m one of the people who run the site.
No we are not paid by the Romney campaign. In case you havn’t noticed. ElectAd is 100% unbiased. We cover all the candidates. We post ALL ads, events and speeches. We don’t play favorites. If a video is avialbel we post it.
We are not ignoring Newt. We can only post what is available. Ever since Newt downsized his staff the Networks have stopped covering him. No one feeds his speeches, and some don’t even bother putting him his events in their events calender.
We get videos mostly from the netwroks. When we can’t get it from them we chase up event organizers and the campaigns. the Romney and Obama campaigns respond to emails and try to help us. Hate to say this, they are organized unlike Newt’s campaign they don’t respond to emails, they don’t pick up phones and you can’t get hold of anybody.
We try our best but there is only so much we can do.
The irony is that there was a few days a couple of weeks ago that Newt had about 3 events a day and the other candidates had nothing going on so we ended up having the home page covered with Newt. Then we had supporters of the others accusing us of being paid by the Newt campaign.
