David 01 Feb 2007 from broadcasting and cable Turner Behind Mystery Packages That Sparked Terrorism Scare By John Eggerton Turner said Wednesday it was behind mysterious packages that caused a terrorism scare in Boston. CNN reported a statement from co-owned Turner taking responsibility and saying it was part of a marketing campaign for its Adult Swim cartoon block. Turner in its statement said: "The packages in question are magnetic lights that pose no danger. They are part of an outdoor marketing campaign in 10 cities in support of Adult Swims animated television show Aqua Teen Hunger Force. They have been in place for two to three weeks in Boston, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, Seattle, Portland, Austin, San Francisco, and Philadelphia. Parent company Turner Broadcasting is in contact with local and federal law enforcement on the exact locations of the billboards. We regret that they were mistakenly thought to pose any danger.Calling it an active investigation, Edward Davis, Boston Police Commissioner, would only say there were no indications it was a terrorist act." Reporting on suspicious packages found around Boston on Wednesday, CNN said that they appeared to be a hoax, and one anchor even speculated it might even be a "publicity stunt for a cartoon show." CNN's speculation came after the network reported that one of the packages contained a black board with pegs and a cartoon character that resembled one of the Mooninite Marauder characters from the Aqua Teen Hunger Force cartoon show. Initial reports had been that it resembled Nickelodeon's SpongeBob Squarepants. Prank or not, it was being taken very seriously by police and Homeland Security. "Two to five years for each infraction," said the mayor of Boston. "We're not playing around." CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer led the 5 p.m. news cycle by calling it a "promotion gone wrong" and a "massive, massive, misunderstanding." It was not clear whether CNN had already established on-air that Cartoon is co-owned with CNN. CNN and Cartoon spokespeople had not returned calls at press time..
