Considering Policies to Protect Children from TV Violence.
Potter, W. James; Warren, Ron
Journal of Communication, v46 n4 p116-38 Aut 1996
Argues that the thinking behind three legislative proposals intended to protect children from the harmful effects of TV violence is fundamentally flawed. Analyzes a composite week of television programming. Finds that many children watch television after 9 P.M., and the lowest percentages of punishment for aggressive acts and major consequences to victims occurred during the highest viewership times for children.
