Random Topics - ACT (Action for Children's Television)

Action for Children's Television (ACT), founded by Peggy Charren in Newton, Massachusetts in 1968, was an organization that sought to heavily regulate commercials aimed towards children. In 1970, they petitioned the FCC to ban all advertisements from children's programming, but now instead seek a more limited prohoibition. ACT's efforts culminated in the passage of the Children's Television Act of 1990, which required that every full-service television station in the U.S. show at least three hours of "educational and information" programs every week. In 1992, Charren disbanded ACT, feeling that the organization completed its goals.

3 THanks god their leader peggy Charren died (all due respect to the family). I'm only glad folks like Fox's former actress and Republican anchor Stacey Dash hasn't sided with ACT, far as I know. -- Submitted By: (PokeyJHorse) on February 26, 2015, 10:19 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
4 These buffoons caused the FCC to ban many of my favorite cartoons in the early 1970s. Only recently have I been able to see them again, thanks to a little something called a DVD. -- Submitted By: (Regulus) on June 18, 2013, 7:38 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Thanks to these people, shows were forced to become educational. Can't kids enjoy anything anymore without moral busybodies like these interfering? -- Submitted By: (Robert) on February 5, 2010, 8:30 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
