Four communications experts released the second annual report of the Televison Violence Study sponsored by the National Cable Television Association. They stressed that television programs rarely show the consequences of violence and often glorify the initiator of violence. They also criticized the new television ratings system, although the study was concluded before the system went into effect. The study was based on 2700 hours of programming on 23 channels from October 1995 to June 1996 and excluded sports, religious, game show and infomercial programming. Following their prepared remarks, the panelists took questions from the press. close
