T&M World's Rick Nelson Stumping for Obama - Again - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

Don't get me wrong, I love Test & Measurement World magazine, but I'm sick and damned tired of its editor Rick Nelson doing free political ads for Obama and against McCain. His blogs have been full of thinly vieled endorsements of Obama and slams against McCain. In the last year or so he has gotten really brazen.

I personally think that editors of professional trade magazines do not have the same freedom that local newspaper editors have to endorse candidates. Note that newspapers are seeing their readerships and subscription rates declining and are cutting lots of staff because of the public's distaste for their one-sided reporting.

It's happening a lot these days. Maybe those of us who are sick of Nelson's stumping should cancel our subscriptions, and maybe contact their advertisers. I plan to do so. He can vote for whoever he wants as far as I care, but I don't read T&M Mag to get his bias on politics.
