That's neither an answer nor a solution. For at least the past decade, I consider political advertisements of all kinds to be offensive on many levels - certainly intellectually, definitely on the level that they are all misleading to the point of being dishonest, and quite frankly contributes to the decline of civil discourse in this country. If you don't provide an option like Twitter to indicate which ads are offensive and shouldn't be shown to me - and the fact that all the ads I get are from a particular political persuasion - merely tells me you are part of the problem (in the best light) and/or trying to influence the elections (in the worst light).
Flag political ads and allow me to opt out of *political* ads.
We don't mind commercials. Just hate political ones. Good way to ruin a hike. How about a bunch of Corona virus to make the listening experience even worse?
As long as you allow these ads to run in any of your services, I have no interest in paying for a subscription that allows you to fund these organizations.
You speak about "...to ensure they are free from speech or content that is hateful, illegal, false, misleading, fraudulent, inaccurate or unfair." The political ads that are allowed on this site are false, misleading, inaccurate. So until you remove such ads, I have no intention of ever paying for your content.
Unfortunately people only listen and obey their rules when money is involved.
How exactly do I block political ads - Pandora isn't very smart considering they will lost a third to a half of their audience - we want to hear music and escape the political BS.

I was just considering a paid subscription until I started hearing anti-Trump ads. Support our country and support our leadership that the country chose. Remember that you aren't the only streaming music service, your customers do have a choice. Goodbye
If you truly cared about your customers and not just a check from the advertisers you'd allow us to respond to the ads so you stop making us listen to ads that will never sway us. What good does it do an advertiser to pay for me to hear an ad that will never entice me to buy what they're selling?
Do you really think the same old ads over and over are going to chance my opinion? At the very least I should be able to give them the thumbs down. You're wasting your advertiser's money playing ads that I won't listen to and those ads certainly won't change my opinion. That kind of data is more valuable to advertisers that number of times their annoying ads get played.
It is too bad because I love your service but I'm sick of these ads.
I will be signing out until after the Elections or later. You people here at Pandora
insult our intelligence and civil Liberty. I have had enough, and can do without your
musicical service. Wake UP!! This is nothing more than "Brain Washing"".

I agree with this completely, Same here I listen to Pandora every day but if they keep up with the adds against Trump I will switch to Spotify or something else too.
Political ads wrenchingly disrupt the neutral safe haven and pleasure of listening to music. I hope the Pandora marketing team takes a serious look at this and appropriately takes action to eliminate political ads. They have no place here whether you support or not support any particular agenda.
I’ve been using pandora for years and the advertising was fine providing local info. However, I do not appreciate the 2020 political advertisement which is false, and deliberately created to divide the nation. Covid 19 is being used as political propaganda and it’s distasteful and disgusting. How about this, no political advertising anywhere, anymore!
