John did not fully address the fantasy rambings of JasonQ42. Corporations are not "collectivist entities." They are voluntary associations of stockholders, who can end, begin, expand or reduce their participation at will by buying or selling stock. Television commerials are not "pro-corporate." Commercials are pro-product, attemptng to convince consumers that they can benefit by purchasing these products. The successful commercials are those that do increase product sales. So it is the consumers of these products who are the ultimate supporters of the television networks. Labor unions paid for hundreds of millions of dollars of political commercials during the election season, far out spending corporations in this regard.
