PTC Applauds FCC Nominees’ Support for Broadcast Decency Law During Confirmation Hearings

 

LOS ANGELES (June 16, 2009) – The Parents Television Council™ applauded the FCC nominees Julius Genachowski, nominated for chairman, and Robert McDowell, nominated for a second term to the FCC, for their statements affirming the broadcast decency law during their confirmation hearings before the U.S. Senate today.

 

“We applaud the public comments from both nominees about the importance of broadcast decency.  Parents and families across the country should be grateful to hear that Mr. Genachowski and Mr. McDowell understand and agree that the FCC must enforce the broadcast decency law.  We urge the Senate to swiftly vote on the confirmation of these nominees so that their actions can quickly follow their words,” said PTC President Tim Winter.

 

To speak with a representative from the Parents Television Council, please contact Kelly Oliver (ext. 140) or Megan Franko (ext. 148) at (703) 683-5004.
