Brent Bozell, president of the Parents Television Council™, will step down as president effective January 1, 2007. Tim Winter, who now serves as the executive director of the PTC™, will assume the presidency. Mr. Bozell, the organization’s founder, will continue to serve on the Board of Directors and as an active advisor to the organization. The PTC was organized in 1995. During the 11 years of its existence, the group has worked to restore a sense of decency to the entertainment community — a national issue. The PTC has built the largest research operation in history. Few people dispute that Hollywood is polluting the culture. Somebody has to lead the fight, and because few politicians do little more than “talk” about the problem, it’s critically important that groups such as PTC stay involved and have the support of the American people.
The PTC works on behalf of parents, families, and other citizens who are concerned about harmful and offensive entertainment content and its effect on children. Broadcasters must be held accountable for what they air over the public’s airwaves. Advertisers must be forced to take responsibility for the programs they sponsor. And we will continue to fight for the right of families to choose and pay for only the cable networks they want coming into their homes, which is also very important. The PTC serves a critical role in this fight for “decency” and will continue to work to protect our nation’s children. I hope churches at the local level will get involved. I have often wondered why more churches didn’t consider the problem important enough to get involved, given that children are the targets of the smut peddlers.
