Hillary Would Ban TV Ads Aimed At Pre-Schoolers.

Campaigning in New York Tuesday, senatorial candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton urged that television stations stop airing advertising directed at preschoolers.

As reported by the New York Daily News, she also proposed that New York elementary schools be made "ad-free zones." In an interview with the Daily News, David Miller, head of the Toy Manufacturers of America said that he regarded the proposed ban on such advertising as a "Big Brother situation."
