What a joke! Once again gambling giants and TV executives are trying to tell the public that they will police content on commercial TV.
I believe that it was in the ‘60s Commercial TV was regulated and allowed limited advertising in breaks in programmes. Then they claimed that they would “self regulate” and what do we have? So much advertising that many of us prefer to stop watching; record so that we can cut out advertising; read; go away for our “tea break”; watch non-commercial channels – anything to get away from up to nine commercials in the body of a show. Maybe that’s why book sales have not plummeted.
”Self regulate”! What a joke! Surely the joke of the century. And self regulation in gambling, greyhound racing, TV – reasonable advertising, are all part of that JOKE.
