In the morning session of a day-long forum, representatives from a variety of interests including the cable industry, broadcasters, government agencies, television ratings services, and special interest groups talked about decency in the media and entertainment industries at an event organized as an open forum and organized by the Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee. Participants focused on regulation of content in various forms of media broadcasts, the use of ratings systems and voluntary guidelines for decency, the role of the Federal Communication Commission, and free speech issues.

Some participants specifically addressed guidelines and enforcement of the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) rating system for video games, time delays used by television networks to screen live airings, and the application of more universal guidelines for all forms of media. close
