    There have been misleading and even false ads run for years. Many of the weight loss remedy ads are in this category. What happens is, complaints are filed, the case is reviewed, and a order is issued to stop the ads. However that process takes months and by that time the ads are over anyway, and they have moved on to some other misleading ad. Unless there are serious monetary losses, or especially if personal injury losses are caused by false ads, little ever happens. If there are definable damages a court case may be follow.

    Anyone who believes advertising is 100% true is in a dreamworld of their own. :D

    BTW, we have Charter Cable here and they have only 3 networks in HD ( we have five OTA) and 8 other HD channels. Charter has always been 5 years behind D* here. Charter has VOD here, but none of it is in HD. They don't even have a HD DVR box the last time I checked.

    And everyone can sue DirecTV for anything (As they have done over the past year). So people can sue DirecTV for their advertising, but it is a waste of time when DirecTV does the same?

    The Comcast commercial that airs on the Chicago locals annoys me.

    "Why get a dish in the City of Wind" - so misleading.

    Which part.... the fact that "Windy City" has nothing to do with the weather...

    Or that weather isn't that bad around here, that there isn't that many issues?

    I lose my comcast internet more then I lose my SAT-TV.
