Baby Einstein and President Bush

For all you parents of infants and toddlers out there, public radio’s Marketplace aired a commentary on Friday by Susan Linn of the Media Center at Judge Baker Children’s Center negatively comparing the marketing of Baby Einstein to the Bush administration’s case for war in Iraq.  "Baby Einstein has a lot in common with the Bush administration. Both
specialize in brilliantly crafted, hugely successful, false and
deceptive marketing. Both exploit fear as a tool for marketing. Both
rely on building a passive and accepting media audience."  Read more, or listen, over at the Marketplace website.
