Rockefeller’s bill, S. 134, the Violent Content Research Act of 2013, calls for the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to work with the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) in examining whether the glorification of violence in popular media contributes to overly belligerent or violent behavior among children and young people.: : The bill is being cosponsored by a number of Republican Senators, including Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK), Mike: Johanns: (R-NE), and Dean Heller (R-NV), as well as Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT).

“I know firsthand from our viewers that families are very concerned about the increasing amount of violent programming on television and are looking for alternative sources of family friendly programming,” INSP Chairman and CEO: David Cerullo: wrote to Rockefeller, who chairs the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation. “I commend you for insisting that potential links between violent video content and violent behavior should be studied by experts in the field.”

“INSP,”: David Cerullo: told Rockefeller, “was founded on the premise that families are hungry for wholesome television options that would not subject their children to violent or inappropriate content.: : Recent Nielsen surveys demonstrate that INSP, which features family friendly programs, is among the fastest-growing networks in the country in terms of viewership and loyalty.”

Rockefeller’s bill will be the subject of Senate Commerce Committee hearings this spring.
