The political nominating conventions are still weeks away, but the general election air war has begun in North Carolina and other battleground states. Hillary Clinton has poured eight figures into TV commercials, while Donald Trump has yet to put a single general election ad on the air. These commercials–particularly attack ads–have been a hallmark of White House campaigns for decades.

Prof. Susan Roberts joins a panel on the 90.7 WFAE radio show "Charlotte Talks" to look at the history of campaign ads, and how they've changed in the social media age.
