We are facing a morals crisis in this country that should have the attention of all American citizens. The filth that we see and hear on television screens on a nightly basis is totally unacceptable. Morality and common decency have been put on the shelf. The Parents Television Council urged both major political parties to focus on entertainment issues of concern to parents at their conventions.
This organization has been fighting to clean up television broadcasting and needs help. PTC President Tim Winter had this to say before the party nominating conventions took place:
Being that millions of parents are deeply concerned at the messages being directed towards their children on television, we expect that both parties will establish clear positions on issues of broadcast decency and consumer cable choice. Our 1.3 million members, who hold a variety of political positions, can all agree that there needs to be some level of responsibility in the entertainment industry to help ensure that our children are not constantly assaulted by sex, violence and profanity on television and in other media.
Each political party should make cleaning up the television broadcasting to which children in the U.S. are being exposed a top priority. This is so badly needed that it would appear the leaders of the two major political parties getting directly involved would be a given. In my opinion, they should be concerned for the safety and welfare of our young people. But we will have to wait and see what happens during the campaign since the issue was largely ignored at both conventions. The closest thing said by the nominees on the issue was when Senator Obama said parents should turn off their television sets. As I recall, Senator McCain had nothing to say on this issue.
This is one issue that most all Americans would agree needs to be addressed and dealt with if it were put to a vote of the people. Currently, there are no real restrictions on what can be shown and said on broadcast, cable, and satellite programming. If you believe that we must clean up our television broadcasting, contact the leaders of both political parties in your state and ask for their help.
