Media activists are asking when does advertising become too much? A recorded conversation between Amy and Larry Adelman discuss the role of advertising in our society as well as possible action that can taken to reduce advertising or create an advertising tax to fund art and education programs in public schools. Larry Adelman was a director of the counter-cleo awards ceremony to bring attention to how much advertising people are exposed to on a regular basis. Amy was later joined by Mecane Temba, the co-director of the praxis project based in Oakland California, a media and policy center, and Shelly Pasnik, the director of children’s policy at the center for media education based in Washington DC. They discuss problems with inappropriate advertising campaigns and tactics that often go unnoticed.
