Hollings urges a TV 'safe harbor'

Published on .

Sen. Fritz Hollings (D., S.C.) accused broadcasters of not doing enough in their program content ratings system to protect children from violent programming. He proposed legislation requiring the FCC to establish "safe harbor" programming hours for any network that didn't offer a ratings system specifically for violent programming. The legislation is similar to that Sen. Hollings, the ranking Democratic member of the Senate Commerce Committee, introduced last year.
