Brazilian legs appeal to b’casters

Campaign asks for 'moralizing' efforts

RIO DE JANEIRO — The Brazilian House of Representatives’ human rights committee is lobbying broadcasters to improve the quality of programming.

Organizers say the campaign is a response to shows with violent and sexual content, particularly those airing before 8 p.m.

Programming classification system will also be streamlined. Currently, it sets age limits for each show and times when broadcasters are not allowed to air programs considered inappropriate for certain ages.

However, analysts maintain broadcasters will not take kindly to “moralizing” efforts.

The networks are against stricter restrictions based on the 1888 Constitution that abolished some kinds of censorship in Brazil.
