The Parents Television Council in the News

The PTC's reach keeps growing and our impact keeps getting stronger. PTC spokespersons are frequent guests on talk radio and television, and print journalists are picking up PTC material. Below is a partial listing of some of the numerous print, radio, and TV outlets that have interviewed our spokespersons, published our research, or highlighted the impact of the PTC. These media appearances are worth millions of dollars to the PTC in "earned media," which means that every dollar you donate to the PTC gets that much extra mileage. We're reaching millions of potential supporters with the message that we are here to help families take back the airwaves and stop Hollywood's corrupting influence.

"Almost single-handedly, the PTC has become a national clearing house for, and arbiter of, decency..."

Time Magazine, 4/28/05

"The PTC is arguably the most powerful single force in broadcasting today. With 20 full-time staff employees manning offices in Los Angeles and Virginia, the PTC does what the FCC does not it monitors all network programming. When its reviewers find something they believe objectionable, the PTC mobilizes its mailing list to use form letters to complain to the FCC." Austin Chronicle 2/18/05

"The PTC was a major force in the public outcry over Janet Jackson's breast-baring Super Bowl half-time performance last year. By the organization's estimate, one-fourth of the 530,828 complaints that poured in came from council members or those informed of the performance by the group's e-mail alert." Houston Chronicle 1/1/05

"The Parents Television Council is the big 800-pound gorilla in the room," says David Carlin, an attorney at Reed Smith, who specializes in indecency cases. Financial Times, 6/14/05

"The Parents Television Council is changing business as usual from Hollywood to Madison Avenue." Daily Times-Call, 1/3/05
