Parents Television Council
This is apropos of my previous post
on Chairman Powell and the FCC, albeit a few days late.
gets the details about the Parents Television Council, "an Alexandria-based junior league Ministry for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice." What's particularly interesting about this group, is that they're responsible for "99.9 percent of indecency complaints to the FCC through October". That's pretty substantial, although given the Council's purpose, it doesn't surprise me. Wonkette also aptly captures the meaning of the above:
Yes, democracy: Where a small group of religious fundamentalists aggressively patrols all forms of mass culture and tells the rest of us what we can watch.
