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.
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.
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.
You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

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."
