PTC at it again!
By Andrew Wallenstein

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Conservative watchdog group Parents Television Council blasted MTV as "smut peddlers" Tuesday, accusing the music cable network of targeting young viewers with oversexed programming. There's no question that TV influences the attitudes and perceptions of young viewers, and MTV is deliberately marketing its raunch to millions of innocent children," PTC president L. Brent Bozell said.

I'm calling the FCC to issue a complaint against PTC, and I urge all C&L readers to do the same. Here's the info for the FCC . Then I pulled a James Dobson and did a little digging into their website: "We are a nonpartisan organization..."

That's all you need to read. They lie about what they are. Everyone knows where Bozell stands. It's time we do to them what they do to the FCC. Anyone who files a suit against Buffy the Vampire Slayer and The Simpsons is disturbed in my book.
