The World: Chicago - Bud.tv comes under attack from attorneys general

Anheuser-Busch, the US brewing giant, has come under fire from some of the US's top law officers, who claim that Bud.tv, its new online TV network, is too easily accessed by young people below the legal drinking age.

Anheuser-Busch said it had gone to massive lengths to discourage any under-age youngsters from watching.
