Your post was clearly off topic. That makes it spam.

So if there was a ratings system, no doubt the Superbowl would be rated as
a
mature subject since it does involve violence. And the ads support

alcohol
consumption. Are these things ok to watch with your kids? People seem

hung
up on a breast, but not on the other seedy aspects of the telecast.


Well, actually, I have complained for years about the Disney channel, with
the exact same reasons. Not really alcohol, but teen-band, sex-appeal
singers, and thoughtless rubbish. MTV is killing our teens, and Disney is
killing our children.

HOWEVER, it is up to the parents to allow, or prevent thier children from
viewing these different things. A complex ratings system (even including
ads) will help parents block certain levels/ratings that they know their
kids should not see.

Take a look at the Superbowl inncident, that I am sure everyone is

aware
of.
I, for one, did not want to see that. But, there is a possibility

that
some
people did. The only thing that needs to be regulated are the
ratings/content notification systems. If people can know ahead of

time
what
type of content will be on a radio/television show, then they can make

a
desision on whether or not to watch.

Americans are free to listen to/view what they choose (within certain
limitations, i.e. child porn, etc.) and it is not up to the F.C.C. to
regulate what goes out over the airwaves. However, I do believe that

the
FCC could do some good, by creating a ratings system that works.

Nobody
wants to be suprised.

-Steve Michaelson


The fact that the airwaves belong to the people doesn't exclude the
possibility that the majority of people want some regulation.
A rating system doesn't solve all problems. Children just don't have
the ability to choose what is good for them and what might be bad.
Those who think that good parenting can overcome this and that
children can be supervised constantly, can't be parents.
Suppose the superbowl incident was was scheduled to happen. Suppose
there was a rating system to reflect that. Personally, I want to be
able to sit down with my kids and watch the superbowl.

I don't want
to skip the game because it has a rating that worries me. I don't
even want to be put in a position where I have to turn off the half
time show because of content.

Steve ... feeling very prudish today, I guess.
