The parernts' television council. The nanniest of the nanny groups. Trying hard to make it pablum for all of us.


It's not about censoring what *you* see, it's about truth in labeling for people in their own homes.

@Hutterite: No, those who think the PTC is trying to censor or limit free speech are grossly mistaken. The PTC is pushing for responsible, legal, appropriate television and advertising. By all means, you are welcome to go subscribe to whatever you want, to buy whatever shows you want. But I should not have to subsidize filth so that you or others can watch it. Further, most people still do not get that the broadcast companies are using PUBLIC airwaves. Perhaps it's hard to understand because television signals are not visible, but communication bands are managed by the government for the people. Companies do not have a right to use them. It's a privilege given for responsible use. The broadcast networks' behavior is akin to companies using main street to parade their filth, blocking traffic, disregarding laws and decency-- and raking in the money while they do. It's not legal, it's not appropriate, it's just not right.
