More Mass Transit Advertising Hooey

| 1 Comment

Following up on my earlier post about BART's dry advertising policy, the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (they put the "Mass" in "Mass Transit") has decided to prohibit ads for violent video games. The decision followed demands from the Campaign for a Commercial Free Childhood.

The article also has a nice child in the chimney quote: "Linn added that the decision 'sends a strong message to the videogame industry that public property cannot be used to promote violence to children.'"

you know, if kids can't learn about violent videogames on the street, they're just going to learn it in the home. isn't it better that they get real information from unbiased sources like bus ads?
