Concurring Statement In Re: Children's Television Report.
Hooks, Benjamin L.
Federal Register, v39 n215 November 6, 1974 (Part II)
Three Federal Communications Commissioners (FCC) filed supplementary statements to the FCC Children's Television Report, elaborating on their individual views. Commissioner Benjamin L. Hooks concurred in the proposed limit on commercial minutes in children's programs, but suggested a lower figure. He also suggested that commercials be "clustered" at the beginning and end of programs. Commissioner Washburn suggested that stricter policies of program and commercial separation be adopted for preschool viewers and also suggested that the FCC should have examined more closely the content of violence and brutality in programing. Commissioner Glen O. Washburn endorsed the Report but warned that the Commission should not go further in restricting broadcasting or advertising. (SK)
