FTC politics

Is the FTC making a political statement by trying to regulate the internet and hold internet advertisers to a different standard than broadcast television and cable providers.

We must apply equal protection under the law, it is after all the law or is that just an in-convenient truth that no one wants to talk about it appears that this administration has no real understanding of how our legal system works because they apparently have to be constantly reminded in court.

We have seen states rights challenged, and defeated.

They tried it in Arizona, they failed.

They are trying it in Wisconsin, and they will fail…

It is time to stop this unfair use of government to attempt to control every aspect of the lives of all Americans.

If you apply one set of rules to the internet and a separate, set of rules for broadcast television then you create unequal application of the law, which means that eventually you will end up in court attempting to argue, against the constitution.

Is this an attempt to institute the fairness doctrine all over again?

It failed back when they tried it in the past.

It has failed on every occasion, yet, they still try to push it out of the way, yet failure is the only future for this type of ignorance.

Make a statement about why using the FTC to engage in politics is wrong and it is not constitutional.

Tell the FTC to stay out of politics and focus on doing its job which is something that anyone can see is allegedly not happening.

FTC in the wrong?

Is the FTC biting off more than it can chew in trying to regulate the internet,

Broadcast, TV, Cable TV, Subscriber lines, Radio, what will be next, free speech?

will you one day wake up to find that you can no longer express an opinion?

When good men do not stand up to the oppressive idea of ignorant fools how will we ever be free?

The same consumer protection laws that apply to commercial activities in other media apply online. The FTC Acts prohibition on unfair or deceptive acts or practices encompasses Internet advertising, marketing and sales. In addition, many Commission rules and guides are not limited to any particular medium used to disseminate claims or advertising, and therefore, apply to online activi- ties.

Is the above statement accurate?

Seriously is the above statement really accurate, do the same consumer protection laws equally apply to commercial activities in other media online.

The day that broadcast commercials apply the same disclosure statements, that the FTC proposes for internet advertisements will be the day that they have got it right…

The problem is that there are two sets of rules, one for broadcast television commercials and a second one that they allegedly wish to oppress the internet with.

Will this end up being a method to create the “fairness doctrine for the internet”

Do yourself a favor, read and comment on the disclosure proposals for online advertising.

will we find the truth or will we end up loosing our freedom to speak out loud.

from dot com disclosures.

Disclosures that are required to prevent an ad from being misleading

The problem here is this, until the same protection is applied to broadcast television then this is not constitutional.

So, when will be see equal protection for broadcast Television?

To make a disclosure clear and conspicuous, advertisers should:

  • Place disclosures near, and when possible, on the same screen as the trigger-ing claim.
  • Use text or visual cues to encourage consumers to scroll down a Web page when it is necessary to view a disclosure.

When using hyperlinks to lead to disclosures,

?    make the link obvious;

?    label the hyperlink appropriately to convey the importance, nature and
relevance of the information it leads to;

?    use hyperlink styles consistently so that consumers know when a link is
available;

The Media’s Obsession for drama

Is the Media becoming an obsessed and allegedly sick member of your family?

In many ways, the idea that the media is becoming a dysfunctional mirror reality may be more true than you might want to believe.

You watch the constant bombardment of Television commercials on Cable, Satellite, and Broadcast Television stations with themes ranging from drug use to prolific risky behaviors presented as a drama. It boggles the imagination that such social upheavals could become a part of what Americans consume daily as part of their intellectual diet.

If the media were a human with human thoughts they would be Psychotic and in need of serious professional treatment.

Considering this previous statement, what does that say for the public who consume such garbage served up by the media.

Is the media programming our children and young adults to become mass murderers?

When you look at the statement above, most of us would recoil in revulsion, however, for the most part, many of the programs we see on Television are in fact allegedly contributing to the recent problems we have seen with violence and not just gun related violence.

Did you know that allegedly, violence, with just about anything close at hand from rocks to sticks, has allegedly increased over the past year?

Could it be true?

Could the media be contributing to the problems we face as a society?

The answer is allegedly YES…

In many ways, programs that feature, Criminals that engage in kidnapping, Abuse, Rape and a dizzying array of criminal activities, including serial killing and mass murder, just to name a few, these are shows that are on your TV every single day, watched by millions and millions of people.

Is it any wonder, that people are going insane watching this kind of garbage on TV?

Remember the old saying you are what you eat, what if you are also what you watch?

Scary right, well for many people that are borderline on the edge of that fine line between being mentally ill and taking a horrible path that could lead to disaster.

We see it in the news every day, yet, for the most part, it is not presented in a manner that adults should be consuming content, it is presented in a manner that is allegedly manic and depressive, allegedly one might even say that the tone of the production is one of participation, now that folks is sick and disturbing.

So what ever you do, when you watch TV, be careful of what is playing out right in front of you, it could be creating the next, mass murderer and you might be allowing it to come right into your home.
