check american government

posted by .

although a democracy is based on freedom of expression, most people recognize the need to allow the government to exercise control over such things as false and misleading advertisements of illegal products, Is the banning of cigarette advertising on television consistent with these necessities?is this right if not coorect,Yes it does.

Freedom of speech does not mean that the government can not regulate that speech to a certain degree. The government has a duty to protect the ppl. That is where the cigarette commercial regulation comes into play... not because of adults btw, but because children watch television.

You seem the same thing with certain types of television (adult material) not being allowed during 'prime-time' hours.
