Television Watch

Television Watch: the site for people who think that the public should decide what we can and cannot watch on TV, not the government. It’s a group advocating less government intervention in programming, and fewer fines that make producers afraid to try new things. TV is one case where the market has already provided a solution: there are ratings on shows, and there is a V-chip that can block shows where the rating is too high. That’s all we need. We don’t need the FCC, and the religious groups that it answers to, poking into our living room.

The site has a petition you can sign, but I’m not sure what good that will do. There needs to be an Activism section, like form letters you can fax to Congress. Maybe the site is still too new.
