Thanks for political free ads until this week.  Never heard them prior.  I'm gone.

Re: Advertisement

Here’s one to report...

  1. What was the ad for? Defund the Police.
  2. How are you accessing Pandora? Mobile phone and PC computer. 
  3. Was it a visual ad, an audio ad, or a video ad with audio? Audio only. 
  4. Which of your station(s) did you hear/see it on? Thunderstorm and Lightning, Thunder and Rain
  5. What time of day did this advertisement play? About 2am. 
  6. What was wrong about the nature of the ad? First of all, it began with “Thank you for calling the police department. Due to defunding, we cannot help you at this time. To report a RAPE, please press 1...You’re current wait time is 5 days.”
    Not only is this as extremely misleading and politically biased, but it can also be triggering for survivors of sexual assault. It’s downright fear-mongering.

    I cannot believe Pandora would allow this garbage to air to begin with. On top of this, you provide no easy way to report said ads. And you claim your ads have been “vetted” by your team. Were you sleeping when you greenlighted this one?
    It’s shameful.

political ad needs to be removed

This service must remove Trump's ad insinuating that if you are raped the police will not come to help you.  this is absolutely horrifically vile, if this service runs ads like this where children can hear I will not use this service any longer

I am not sure what is up with the sudden, constant political ads, but it has completely turned me off of using the Pandora app for my music. It's ridiculous and absolutely ruins any kind of feeling the music is supposed to give you.

Political Advertising

Pandora, as I'm sure you are aware, we are INUNDATED with political advertising everywhere we go. News media, blanket/spam emails, robocalls, videos from all sources, social media sites, etc., etc., etc.
I can't speak for others, but one reason I come here is to listen to music with the limited advertising (can't afford the upgrade at this time). Please, remove political advertising from your site and keep your site a place where I and others can find respite from such garbage.

Negative Trump Ads are so false

The factual inaccuracy of the political ads on Pandora is unbelievable.  A preschoolers would not believe what they are saying.  Please remove from Pandora.

I totally agree. I'm thinking of leaving Pandora in the dust for that alone.

@smffly @lexigeek I'm happy to look into this for you, but I'll need a bit more information first. Could you tell me a little more?

Please include as much of the below information as possible:

  1. What was the ad for? Do you remember the brand, product, event or website name?
  2. Do you remember anything specific that was mentioned?
  3. How are you accessing Pandora? Are you on a computer, phone, tablet or in-home device (TV, Xbox, Blu-ray player, etc.)?
  4. Was it a visual ad, an audio ad, or a video ad with audio?
  5. Which of your station(s) did you hear/see it on?
  6. What time of day did this advertisement play?


If you're able to get a screenshot of what's happening, please send that along as well.

Once I have more information about the ad, I can pass it along to our advertising team.

We really appreciate your help with this!

Doesnt matter what ad.. Take all political ads and shove it. We come here for the great music service and the ability to tailor our own music stations not to be bombarded with more bs that we hear on regular radio. Please stay neutral and keep to the music..not politics. Thanks.
