Re: Illegal advertising to children in the room

How can they enforce it when children under 12 can pretty much watch any channel, which means practically any channel (which pretty much MUST carry advertisements due to the need to keep carrying fees down or cablecos will balk) can't carry ads at all (to say nothing of major broadcasters, who basically have nothing BUT ad revenues), meaning the entire television model breaks down?

And then about about radio, newspapers, and magazines, all of which can be seen by children under 12 AND are all plastered with ads?
