Seems like Jefferson brought a knife to a gun fight.

I'd have preferred seeing the actual ads rather than have them reformatted and butchered into a modern format, which makes the whole argument lose credibility.
Anaxagoras
The actual ads would have just been words on a piece of paper, which would appear quaint & not terribly insulting to modern eyes. This reformat does an excellent job of giving the attack ads the immediacy and bite that contemporaries of the ads would have felt.

They included the original sources in the video description.

Plus the actual ads would have lots of the Long and Short S and would get frustrating to read.

Heh heh, politicians are historically illiterate, thanks Internet!

Reason.Tv, that's a red flag.

This is a really lame argument. "Sure it's bad, but it's not as bad as it used to be, so it's okay!"
KillerGazebo
I think the argument is more "It's as bad as it's been since 1800, so we shouldn't treat negative political ads as historically unprecedented signs of our country's impending demise."

Anaxagoras
I got the same message, KillerGazebo. And I think it's a useful one to keep in mind.
