    Default Demisie la Cartoon Network

    Directorul postului de televiziune Cartoon Network, Jim Samples, si-a dat demisia vineri, in urma unei campanii publicitare a postului care a declansat, pe 31 ianuarie, o alerta terorista de proportii in centrul orasului Boston, relateaza Mediafax.
    Campania consta intr-o serie de dispozitive electronice luminoase reprezentand personaje din desene animate, care au fost amplasate in Boston, trezind suspiciuni ca ar fi vorba despre bombe.
    Campania a dus, de altfel, la alertarea serviciilor de securitate, blocarea mai multor cai rutiere si suspendarea traficului feroviar."Ca director general al Cartoon Network, ma simt obligat sa ma retrag imediat, ca semn ca imi dau seama de gravitatea situatiei ce a aparut sub supravegherea mea", a spus Jim Samples intr-un comunicat.

    Cartoon Network has agreed to pay $2 million in compensation to Boston area authorities mobilized over the scare, and two employees of a marketing firm hired by the Cartoon Network were charged with disorderly conduct.

    The Cartoon Network is part of Turner Broadcasting System Inc, a unit of Time Warner Inc.
