"The Movie Mom" 

 

On the Release of

Wolves in Sheep's Clothing: A content Analysis of Children's Television 

 

It was 45 years ago this May that my dad, Newton Minow, the Kennedy Administration Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, told the National Association of Broadcasters that television was a "vast wasteland."  Today, he says it is more like a toxic waste dump.  This report documents the crude, vulgar, disrespectful, and violent behavior children are bombarded with when they turn on the television.  I hope it will help families make more careful choices."

 

 

Nell Minow reviews movies each week as "the Movie Mom" for Yahoo! and 20 radio stations across the US and Canada.  She writes the "Media Mom" column for the Chicago Tribune.  Her articles have appeared in USA Today, Family Fun, Daughters, Parents, and three editions of The Practical Guide to Practically Everything.  The second edition of her books, The Movie Mom's Guide to Family Movies, was published in 2004.  She has been profiled in the New York Times, the Economist, Forbes, the Chicago Tribune, Working Woman, CFO Magazine, the Ladies Home Journal, Washingtonian Magazine, and the Chicago Sun Times, and has appeared as The Movie Mom on CBS This Morning, Fox Morning News, NPR, CNN, and dozens of radio programs.
