Uh, Hotline?

They write:

BTW: Webb served in the administration for several years; the ad here refers to his job as Navy Secretary.

Uh, no, what the ad is trying to do is mislead people into thinking Webb only served in the Reagan administration for 10 months when actually did so for several years. The voiceover says "Twenty years ago, fiction writer James Webb served in the Reagan Administration. After 10 months, he quit." But the visual says "20 years ago, James Webb served as Navy Secretary."
