Broadcasters to seek help on violence bill

December 14, 1990|By Knight-Ridder News Service

WASHINGTON -- Now that President Bush has signed a bill encouraging TV broadcasters to talk over ways to curb the impact of TV violence on children, the industry has decided to meet with its lawyers.

"The consensus is that the lawyers need to fully analyze the legal parameters of the law and decide how to proceed," said Lynn McReynolds, spokesman for the National Association of Broadcasters.

The TV Violence Bill was passed with much fanfare in Congress this fall and signed into law by Bush last week. The bill allows officials from network, cable and production companies to sidestep anti-trust regulations and hold voluntary meetings to develop guidelines on TV violence.
