just say no to pharmaceutical ads

In the couple of hours after coming home from work and eating, I like to flip back and forth between MSNBC (my primary interest focused on the Rachel Maddow show) and Fox News (to get a dose of the other side – although I don’t last too long over there) and I feel that I am bombarded with pharmaceutical ads, mostly to cure erectile dysfunction, but constantly trumpeting awful and horrible side effects. The ads have me convinced that even if I had erectile dysfunction I would under no circumstances use any of those horrible drugs. Do those ads actually work? Given that they play night after night, year after year, they must.
Get off my TV, I yell, before I switch the channel, hoping the get a break on the other one.
Then I saw this blog post here by The Honking Goose, telling me to just say no.
