- A Practical Approach To Television Violence - 1,290 words
A Practical Approach To Television Violence As difficult as this issue is, I believe it can be addressed. My report shows that some progress has already begun in several areas. Attention needs to be focused on how and why some programming has begun to move in the right direction and why the rest has not. What this issue needs, more than anything else, is cool heads on all sides of the problem: the network executives, the creative community, the government, researchers and advocacy groups. All sides need to worry less about how each development affects only them and instead look at the needs of everyone.(U.C.L.A. 5) In the broadcast world, the four television networks, ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC, ...

- Att Longdistance Monopooy - 1,063 words
At&T Long-Distance Monopooy AT&T Long-distance Monopoly Is a monopoly a good thing? From the standpoint of economists, monopolies are anything but good.

- Censorship - 884 words
Censorship CENSORSHIP Censorship and the ideology supporting it reiterates concepts from ancient times. In early Greek civilization, Socrates was accused of worshipping strange gods and corrupting the minds of the youth.

Ancient Roman society endorsed that only members of the Senate, or persons of vast authority, enjoyed the privilege of free speech.

- V Chip Act - 1,181 words
V Chip Act In the process of unbridling the burdened telecommunications industry, Congress somehow forgot itself and managed to regulate a new blossoming business. This industry was one that was a true and unadulterated free market. It is the Internet. This market place, which resides everywhere yet nowhere in a place called cyberspace, deals in one thing: information. Each day millions of people trade uncountable letters, memos, posts on newsgroups, photographs and innumerable conventional and unconventional information. This is done at the rate of millions of gigabytes each hour. Nevertheless, tucked away under Title V of the otherwise agreeable telecommunications deregulatory law, is a me ...

This quote comes from the mouth of an eight year old girl after watching the evening news on television.
