Anyone else tired of the MSNBC Kids Commercial

Where little Timmy asks something like 'can you explain what's happening in Ukraine?

Well Timmy, here's the explanation. A really bad evil man named Vladimir Putin has control over the russian military and decided to have them kill all the peaceful Ukrainians for no good reason. OK?

How ridiculous.

a website that tracks what, what's his name, tells impressionable kids. Nope,

I don't think we need commercial news to provide a "kids" interpretation of reality. Parent's responsibility. Obvious there will be a lot of stupid interpretations of reality that will be passed on. That's where society culls the anti-socialists.

3. The stupidity behind it is they are trying to make it a viable topic of discussion

which it isn't. It's an evil unprovoked attack. That's all there is to it.

2. I assume some group bought ad time on MSNBC. There's one that features abused dogs...

…. And another that features elephants hunted for their ivory. Then there’s 1-800-KARS4KIDS.

If the remote control is anywhere near me, I mute them all pretty fast. Good luck doing the same.

They interviewed the kids who were the actors about "how the annoying jingle changed their lives".

I never saw this extended version. It’s definitely catchy. And it is for a great cause. These kids are the future.

It’s just an awful, horrible repetitive jingle. And it’s been running…for years and years.

it's obnoxious along with being sketchy as to where and how much money actually goes to what's advertised.

5. Commercials? What commercials?

Oh, that's right. When you watch regular TV you get them.

Why I love not having a TV. It's not that I don't watch my share of television, it's just that I do it online and almost never see commercials. Lucky me.

It would be nice if they had more commercial supporter/ advertisers so that there is more variety of commercials.
