A ten-minute video presentation created by UCLA was shown. It consisted of clips of television shows from the past few decades illustrating both positive and negative views of family relationships. Then President Clinton and the vice president discussed media programming with communications experts, religious leaders, and representatives of several medical fields and law enforcement. The participants expressed concern about the violence and sexual content of movies, television and popular music, and suggested ways of improving this without losing commercial sponsorship. The president has proposed an amendment to the Telecommunications Bill requiring that all televisions be manufactured with a “v-chip” which would enable parents to block channels or programs they do not want their children to watch. close
