In the name of double standards

Yeah yeah, I know it's not the same. But isn't it ironic when (Norwegian) TV3 sends their UNICEF-commercial about poor Ariane from "Africa" who is undernourished and who will be all fine again for just a few Norwegian kroner (6 kroner = 1 USD). But what is the real reason she is undernourished? Is it that she hasn't got a UNICEF sponsor in Norway yet? Or is it bigger problems like poverty, war, corrupt leaders, unevenly distributed resources etc.?

Not that that was the point. The point is that right after we have stared into the starving eyes of a baby in Africa, a commercial for GO 1-2-3 follows, a diet cure where you lose weight by cutting out 1 or more meals a day, and instead just drinking a diet mixture.
