Durbin, Other Senators Criticize Nickelodeon Advertising

SpongeBob SquarePants would need to find some new advertisers… if U.S. Senator Dick Durbin has his way. 


Durbin and several other Democratic senators are calling on the Nickelodeon cable networks to stop accepting advertising for “unhealthy” products aimed at children.  A study finds that more than two-thirds of the ads on Nickelodeon channels were for fast food, sugary cereals or other sweet snacks.


Durbin says Disney is now refusing such ads for all of its media platforms… including TV and the Internet… and says Nick should follow suit.
