The malicious and misleading advertisements of today
Debate Rounds (3)
Here are the points on which I rely -
1-Cost of advertisement affects the cost of product. It will become burden to costumer.
2-The promoters only emphasise on the merits.
3-Advertisers present the product as a favourite of the celebrities. This has great influence on young minds.
4-People are preferring ready made food than fruits and vegetables through advertising. These new habits are adversely impacting their health.
5-Some pesticides, though in very small quantities were found in common cold drinks. But advertisers are not revealing this fact.
6-All cosmetic products are advertised in the name of fruit extracts, the chemical contents are neither displayed nor printed on the product cover.
7-Teenagers are attracted by cigarette, alcohol and diet pills advertisements, and their health is adversely effecting by these habits.
8-Consumers tend to be manipulated by an advertisement's promise that the product will do something special for them, which upsets their budget.
9-An advertisement for an expensive good is likely to create an ill-feeling in the mind of a poor teenager who cannot afford it. Such feelings often lead to hatred and anti-social activities.
I would remind the opponent that he should post his argument and then in the final round we will put up ways and conclusions on this topic
I believe that Advertisements should not mislead in any way by inaccuracy, ambiguity, exaggeration, omission or otherwise. More specifically, advertisements should not:
1-Misrepresent any matter likely to influence consumers" attitude to any product, advertiser, or promoter;
2-Misrepresent any information to mislead consumers into believing any matter that is not true, such as the source of the product, quality of the product, obligation (or non-obligation) in using a trial product, and others;
3-Mislead consumers about the price of goods or services;
4-Underestimate the actual total price to be paid;
5-Mislead consumers to overestimate the value or mislead consumers regarding the conditions on the terms of payment such as hire purchase, leasing, installment sales and credit sales; or
6-Mislead consumers regarding the terms or guarantee, delivery, exchange, return, repair and maintenance; and mislead consumers regarding the extent of benefits for charitable causes.
If a presentation (such as a speech, documentary and newsreel) is substantially an advertisement, it should be clearly stated as an advertisement.
1-Advertisements should not misuse research results or quotations from technical and scientific publications.
2-Statistics should not be so presented so as to imply a greater validity that they really have.
3-Scientific terms should not be misused; scientific jargon and irrelevancies should not be used to make claims appear to have any scientific basis which they do not possess.
I would like to emphasize the important status of advertising in our society. Advertising helps us to orient among the wide range of products. On the other hand they use unethical practices, such as telemarketing companies who call random people and try to sell their products by using any methods. Nowadays people have to be extremely prudent when they sign anything and read everything carefully. Advertisement is everywhere.
1.There is a reason why advertisement is so common these days. The reason is that advertisement plays a vital role in general commerce. Though we may not think about it so much, ads are just as important for the consumer as it is for the supplier. For starters ads prove that a certain company or business is interested in pleasing the customer. Advertisements are also a good source of information for a potential buyer who may not know much about the company or the products it offers. It also let's people know about a resource or service they might eventually need. Ads also inform the customer about any new improvements to a product. I also believe that advertisement is the greatest tool and source of of expression a company can posses. Through advertisement a manufacturer can directly provide a customer with useful information eliminating the need for a middle man and allowing the customer to decide for themselves on what they want.
2.Advertisement has also been a huge part of our country's tradition and culture. Advertisement as a whole has opened many people's minds to new world views.We must also understand that ads only promote sales and business which is an essential part of any free trade government. Many public notices are used for moral and patriotic purposes as well.
Needless to say our system of publicity and advertisement help benefit our economy in every way possible.In a capitalist system of government the economy lives off private and individual trade and advertisement promotes this. Advertisement is also a factor that is vital in the growth of any business big or small, if America's businesses grow so will it's finances. Also in this difficult recession one of the most important factors of recovery is employment, so think about it this way:
* Advertisement and Publicity= Prosperous Businesses= Increase in Job Openings= Financial Recovery*
