ON THE EDGE: RLG Reporter’s griping brings down loud commercials

By Phil Riske, managing editor (who sometimes writes with his tongue in his cheek)tony-siragusa

Ever since the Federal Communications Commission announced its new rules on decibel limits for television commercials, this column has loudly complained none of the TV channels was adhering to the rules. For a couple years since the rules went into effect, ads continued to blast viewers off their sofas.

Finally, the commission, once it learned of the political power that belongs to Rose Law Group Reporter’s Gripe of the Week, put the hammer down on TV stations, which now seem to be abiding by the noise regulations.

(Chest beating)

Now, we’re on to another battle—banning offensive health care and medical ads, especially at mealtime.

Commercials that deal with the following should be prohibited:

Any kind of itching, scaling or ugly blemishes

Any kind of underarm problems

Any kind of bloating or gas

Any ads with people holding hands as they sit in separate bathtubs

Anything to do with earwax

Anything to do with stuff between the toes

Anything to do with unwanted hair

Anything to do with wanted hair

Anything to do with uric acid or bile

Any medicine that can cause nightmares, suicidal thoughts or death

Anything to do with a leak

Anything to do with potty training
