V-chip resurfaces in TV violence bill

Sen. Kent Conrad (D-N.D.) and Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.) have offered anti-TV violence legislation that would set up a Federal Communications Commission advisory committee of industry execs and public interest advocates to rate TV programs for violence content.

Passage of the bill is considered highly unlikely.

Under the legislation, introduced on June 7, TV set manufacturers would be required to insert “V-chip” technology that would allow parents to block out programming that’s rated excessively violent. The bill also would bar programs rated “inappropriate for children” between 6 a.m. and 9 p.m.
