I've listened to Pandora since 2018, I don't mind most Ads, but lately, there have been a number of Political Ads.
Political Ads are polarizing, and I especially dislike political attack Ads.
How can I filter them from the App (I use an iPhone), or other device? I don't see the ability to say "don't show me this again".
Just heard some pro-Trump propaganda on your station and i turned it off. I see that some listeners feel the same way about anti-Trump ads. Your path is clear. Stop airing political advertisements! People tune in to escape all that.
I was hoping this anti Trump ad would eventually stop. It is a blatant lie that is strung together with sound bites. People keep telling me to go to Spotify but I just like the simplicity of Pandora. A second anti Trump ad recently started today by the same company with the same blatant lies. I've been a Pandora user for 11 years and now it's come to an end. Maybe you can salvage other users and screen the political ads a little. I would feel the same way if it was blatant lies about Biden also.
If these attack Trump ads aren't hateful I would be afraid to hear what your "content team" actually think are hateful. I don't like ads but I will put up with them but I will not put up with one-sided politics. There are other music sources to go to that don't push a political agenda. Either pull the Anti Trump ads or run some anti Biden ads.
I totally agree I was set to upgrade purchase a Pandora subscription until I heard these ads lieing giving an opinion not the truth an opinion about President Trump. Now I believe I will deactivate and leave Pandora. I don't like their decision to allow this type of deception to be a part of Pandora, they should be ashamed and they should go bankrupt. I'm outta her bye
I have not been able to figure out how to adjust my ad preferences to not get all the political ads. I think it really **ahem** that you are pushing so many anti-Trump and democratic ads. I have yet to hear any ads praising Trump. I understand the need to make money with ads, which I don't have a problem with, just give me ads with no political motives or agenda. I enjoy Pandora and like the platform, but if this cannot be resolved I am going to switch to Spotify and delete my Pandora account.
Clearly either Pandora is owned by leftist liberals or you're getting a ton of money to run these liberal propaganda ads. If your messages weren't an endorsement they wouldn't all be from the left. We get it, you didn't get who you wanted so now it's a big cry fest. Typical liberal!
I'm having the exact same issue, but from the other side. Almost every single ad is a trump ad. **ahem**ty to hear when I'm trying to relax and listen to music.
I only have the budget to subscribe to one music streaming service. I'll be going with Spotify for one specific reason - they committed to not running any political advertising. Cancel your political ads. All of them. I don't give a single**ahem**if it's for one side or the other. I know your standard talking-point is to indicate "licensing music is very expensive...blah, blah, blah...and that's why we're shoving these ads up your **ahem**...blah, blah, blah..."
I don't care. The music streaming service that denies access to the purveyors of divisiveness will get my money. No one - and I mean absolutely no one - wants to hear that **ahem**. Let me know when the bean counters at corporate get their collective heads out of their asses and recognize they're going to lose more revenue from subscriptions than they'll gain from advertisers.

Yes! It's suck blatant propaganda & I haven't heard one ad smearing Biden and I NEVER heard an ad like these play against Obama. Heaven forbid. Your organization is shamelessly promoting leftist propaganda, you say it's targeted through research gained by advertisers through my browser history? Well they're obviously not paying attention because I am NOT a member of the Libtard Army...Pandora is in bed with Google & George Soros....sheep!!!!
