FCC Mulling More Control For Electronic Media

October 30th, 2009 10:03 admin

A recent Notice of Inquiry from the FCC is looking for opinions on how the “evolving electronic media landscape” affects kids, and whether the FCC itself should have more regulatory control over such media. The full NOI (PDF) is available online. “FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski included a statement with the NOI in which he noted that ‘twenty years ago, parents worried about one or two TV sets in the house,’ while today, media choices are far more widespread for children, including videogames, which ‘have become a prevalent entertainment source in millions of homes and a daily reality for millions of kids.’”
