Cartoon Network Prez Out After Aqua Teens Hit Boston

Looks like Turner found at least one - and there may be more - to sacrifice after the Aqua Teen ads in Boston prompted a security freakout. The President of the Cartoon Network is out.

'I feel compelled to step down, effectively immediately, in recognition of the gravity of the situation that occurred under my watch,' Jim Samples said in an e-mail to Cartoon Network employees, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported."

Smart money says more fallout will follow. It's a shame, people, since it was Boston and Boston alone who got wigged out by the ads.

    Noble act of sacrifice....
    Has there been any official word from the other cities concerning their response? Surely a "strange box" was reported/called in more than once.

  2. I bet their stock is is all a game

  3. Cinemonkey - not one city has reported any problems whatsoever. Only Boston did the freak.
