Nader group slams ad agencies

Published on .

Ralph Nader's Commercial Alert consumer group, in a bid to suggest advertisers have gone too far in commercialism, is writing 10 top ad agencies, asking if there's any place at all they would consider off limits for ads. In letters to the agencies, the group's director, Gary Ruskin, suggests that Americans "feel assaulted" by ads. "Advertisers are engaged in a relentless battle to claim every waking moment," the letter says. It also asks whether churches, the U.S. flag, schools, hospitals, body parts, national monuments, religious ceremonies or outer space should be off limits as ad venues.
