Do Kids Need Government Censors?
Rabkin, Rhoda
Policy Review, n111 p27-42 Feb-Mar 2002
Fashioning public policies restricting children's access to entertainment glamorizing violence, sex, drugs, and vulgarity is a complex task. The recently introduced Media Marketing Accountability Act would empower the federal government to regulate advertising of entertainment products to youth. Suggests that this power is undesirable compared to traditional industry self-censorship. Examines age-based ratings and the music, tobacco, and film industries. (SM)
