Researchers briefed reporters on the latest study of television violence funded by the National Cable Television Association. The study concludes that the proportion of shows with violent scenes in prime-time hours continues to rise. It also states that many positive characters initiate violence, while the negative consequences of violence are rarely shown. The study was based on about 10,000 hours of programming from 23 channels, broadcast and basic and premium cable, over the period from October 1994 to July 1997. close
