There are many types of indecent things in our world today. Most of these indecencies lie within the media. Whether it be pornography on the internet, or an inappropriate sitcom on the television. To correct this problem, the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) have limited these talk shows and video programming to later hours in the day when they can not be viewed by younger kids. However, this does not stop these kids from seeing programs like this. It then ends up being the parents complaining about things like this and making a big uproar about having indecent things on television.
What parents need to understand is that there are many alternatives to maintain what there kids watch other than complaining. Today's technology has enabled us to use such things as channel blockers so kids are unable to access specific channels that might contain racy material. They also have a lot of alternative programming on televisions that are directed towards kids. Shows such as Sesame Street and Nick Jr. These programs are made for kids.
Again, I think it is ridiculous for people to want to ban all indecency from the media. Take the American Decency Association for instance. There is goal is to eradicate the showing of nudity and sex on television, sexually suggested magazine articles, the teaching of sex education in schools, and policies that promote homosexuality. From this I determined that if we want to get rid of inappropriate programs on television, then we must do so with all other sources. Seeing how we can not possibly do that, it seems foolish to try and stop the media from doing it.
In conclusion, I feel that trying to monitor what we see on television is a waste of time. If it is really important to a parent then they can use the parental control system that comes with their television. It just seems pointless to fight for something that we will not be able to change.
- Your point is ... ?
I can't find any reference to this being an official name whatsoever - searching produces only one attempt at a joke (It's called "WC-TV" because their output is a load of shit.), so I'm taking this out. 126.96.36.199 06:59, 4 May 2006 (UTC)
"ITC" disambiguation/Ofcom header notices
I do not believe that the header about the transfer of powers to Ofcom is really necessary. The first sentence is written in the past tense - it describes the ITC as history, and the Ofcom information is clearly stated later in the article.
The note about ITC Entertainment seems pointless - ITC does not redirect to this page and there is a disambiguation page for this and many other uses of the term "ITC" also. Both headers also look out of place.
For these reasons I have removed both notices and the horizontal bar which accompanied them, and have also moved the logo image to a more standard position on the right of the screen.
AFAIK BSC was founded in 1996 by Broadcasting Act 1996. So why does the infographic show it since 1990?
