FCC considers violence ratings

Published on .

The Federal Communications Commission is asking if limits on the number of ads in kids shows should also apply to program announcements and whether ads should be rated for sex and violence to prevent inappropriate messages from being aired during kids shows. The issues were raised in a ''notice of proposed rulemaking'' Oct. 5. The FCC also questioned whether broadcasters should be barred from linking on-screen icons to Web sites during kids shows, and whether requirements to devote three hours to kids shows should apply to all media streams.
