Press Release

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
November 16, 2011


 

Statement from Tim Winter, President, Parents Television Council:

On the 1,471,912 pending indecency complaints before the Federal Communications Commission  


“The volume of unresolved indecency complaints before the FCC is staggering. In fact, outside of broadcast indecency complaints, there are virtually no other pending complaints at the Commission. Regardless of the fact that there are court challenges to narrow aspects of the decency law, the FCC is not handcuffed and should move ahead with responding to the nearly 1.5 million Americans who have asked the agency to do its job. Adverse court rulings on other issues have not deterred the FCC to the point of a standstill and broadcast decency enforcement should not be the exception.”

The Parents Television Council™ (www.parentstv.org®) is a non-partisan education organization advocating responsible entertainment. It was founded in 1995 to ensure that children are not constantly assaulted by sex, violence and profanity on television and in other media. This national grassroots organization has more than 1.3 million members across the United States, and works with television producers, broadcasters, networks and sponsors in an effort to stem the flow of harmful and negative messages targeted to children. The PTC also works with elected and appointed government officials to enforce broadcast decency standards. Most importantly, the PTC produces critical research and publications documenting the dramatic increase in sex, violence and profanity in entertainment. This information is provided free of charge so parents can make informed viewing choices for their own families.
