Durbin Calls on Kids' Programs to Pick Better Ads


SpongeBob SquarePants could still eat all the Krabby Patties he wants… but U.S. Senator Dick Durbin says the commercial breaks in the popular cartoon series should not be trying to sell fast food to kids.

 

Durbin and several other Democratic senators are asking the Nickelodeon networks to stop accepting advertising in kids’ shows for “unhealthy products” like fast food or sugary snacks or soft drinks.

 

One study says as much as two-thirds of the advertising on Nickelodeon kids’ shows are for such products.
