Senators introduce bill requiring violence labels

Published on .

U.S. Sens. John McCain (R., Ariz.) and Joe Lieberman (D., Conn.) last week said they will introduce legislation requiring TV networks, movie makers, videogame makers and music companies to implement a common ratings system for violence in their products. Ad groups questioned the constitutionality of the measure, to be introduced this week, calling it "compelled speech."
