SHOULD ADS BE BANNED FROM TV PROGRAMS?

Dear Editor,
I am writing to complain about ads on TV. There are so many ads, especially
during my favorite programs. I think they should be stopped for a number of
reasons.
First, ads are a nuisance. They go on for a long time and there are so many.
Sometime duration for ads is even longer than the program itself.
Second, ads give a bad influence on people. They try to encourage people to
buy unhealthy food like beers, soft drinks, candies, and chips. In other words, they
make people want things they do not really need and cannot afford.
Finally, ads play role in what programs people watch. That is because there
are lots of ads in popular programs that a lot of people watch. Some programs
which are not so popular get stopped because they not attract enough ads, even
though those programs may be someones favorite.
For those reasons, I think TV stations should stop showing ads. They interrupt
programs. They are a bad influence on people ant they sometimes put a stop to
peoples favorite shows. I am sick of ads and
now I mostly watch movie in cinema.
Sincerely yours,
Masarani S.W.
