Channel One News has dished out a lot of violence to middle school kids.

Publicity still from the Channel One News-advertised movie Chronicle (2012).


Channel One News has a long, disgusting history of advertising movies and TV shows with violent content. And using violent images to even sell products like Mountain Dew and Mug Root Beer. Here is just a sampling of their recklessness.

During the holidays it is a good time for all of us to count our blessings. One blessing that many parents and educators are thankful for is the ever mounting number of schools that are continuing to turn off Channel One News.  Teens and preteens – and certainly elementary school children – don’t need  what Channel One and their new partner Promethean are selling.

Children need less violence in their world. They need zero Channel One.

Take a look at the two horror movies, filled with violence, Channel One and Promethean advertised to kids just this fall.
