I think networks should rate their shows or movies they show according to the rules already established. R means swear words, nudity, violence, PG-13 means whatever that means, etc, etc.

    Personally, I think the free market should decide that. If there's enough of an uproar over a content, then that show won't get enough listeners to get enough sponsors to post advertisements to pay for their show.

    I also think it would be a good idea if terrestrial radio programs had a rating system like we have for tv shows, movies, and video games. A little self-regulation will help out a long way.

    If there was uproar over violence in films then all movies would be edited to exclude graphic content. That would make us like Saudi Arabia.

    I think that the "uproar" is caused by a few who are really loud. That is all. The majority of the people do not care and they would watch anything as long as they remember what is on at what time.

    I agree in full, but also had to read up in this exact matter when I was in the broadcasting curriculum. The arguments were very solid for the censure power versus the non-censure arguments at that time.

    With the structured timing schedules now and competition I think a good debate should be renewed to allow more content options in programming and especially considering the mandatory ratings system.....applying that to radio is absolutely a great idea as well.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Indeed. I refuse to watch movies on TV for that very reason. The editing of them annoys the **** out of me.

    This really is a simple problem to deal with. If you don't want your kids to watch TV that has bad language or violence in it than don't let them watch shows that are rated for that kind of content. I really don't see how this is a problem. My kid watches what we tell him he can watch. This is the same as trying to ban McDonald's from advertising to kids because it makes them to fat. If you don't want your kids eating there than guess what don't take your kid there. If parents in this country would actually try and be parents than this country would have a much brighter future. But in today's culture who wants to take responsibility for anything any more. Blame someone else. The new American way
    President Franklin Roosevelt eulogized a fallen American Soldier by saying, “He stands in the unbroken line of patriots who have dared to die [that] freedom might live, and grow, and increase its blessings. Freedom lives, and through it he lives--in a way that humbles the undertakings of most men."

    Parenting? I do not understand this concept. Explain!
