Want to know how to be informative and entertaining at the same time? Look no further than Gruen, last night tackling campaigns against domestic violence with an intelligent, sometimes powerful, segment about the attitudes of teens and children. Despite moving advertisements, there was not always agreement on their effectiveness, yet applause from the audience for more work to be done within the community. You can’t manufacture this stuff, Gruen is pitch perfect.
