James: Look at that! It’s commercial after commercial. It’s terrible how advertisers are going after kids.
Vicky: They’re just doing their job, marketing to a lucrative demographic.
James: But just look at what our kids are bombarded with: toy commercials and junk food ads!
Vicky: Children’s television is no different from any other type of programming. Commercials are a fact of life.
James: But don’t you think it’s wrong to manipulate young viewers with these commercials? Aren’t they more susceptible to false advertising?
Vicky: Shh! That’s our company’s product commercial. It really gets your attention, doesn’t it?
James: Yeah, it’s grand, just grand.
