Shocking tactics used for children marketing

7 posts in this topic

"Marketing to children has turned into a science in its own right. For example, the film reveals how "the nag factor" has been studied to the point that marketers can be advised on "what kind of tantrums work better."

That is so messed up! >:(

Thanks for this, it's a good article.

​Whoa, good find!

I never liked Sesame Street even as a kid.

Remember this?

Sex abuse lawsuits against 'Elmo' voice actor dismissed

Three lawsuits alleging sex abuse by Kevin Clash, the puppeteer who gave Sesame Street's Elmo his voice, were dismissed by a judge who ruled the accusers waited too long to sue.

Clash, who was suspended and later resigned from his Sesame Street after the first allegations surfaced in November, "can go about the business of reclaiming his personal life and his professional standing," his lawyer told CNN Monday.

The lawyer who filed the lawsuits vowed to "appeal the decision and continue the fight to be a voice for victims."
