TONY SCHWARTZ, DEAD AT 84; DEVELOPED POWERFUL POLITICAL AD AGAINST GOLDWATER

Known as "The Daisy Ad," it was the most controversial political ad in the history of televised, presidential politics. The ad aired one time and had to be pulled. But its effects lingered (MSM replayed the ad on nightly newscasts) and LBJ won the White House going away in the 1964 elections. Tony Schwartz obit. (I bet this movie ending had everything to do with the making of this ad)
