TV violence ban urged at terrorism round table

Participants in "Russia's Terrorism-Free Future" round table held in Moscow Monday urged unanimously "a violence scenes ban on TV". The round table brought together representatives of the State Duma and Moscow City Duma, the FSB special police, the Interior Ministry, the Emergency Situations Ministry, and government security agencies and bodies. The speakers at the round table pointed out that "evil and negativism are pouring continually" from TV screens, while the television itself "litters our children's brains." The specialists say the young people effectively get no positive information and "imbued with negativism, hit the streets." If terrorism is to be opposed, "it is necessary not only to keep teenagers away from the cruel world of streets, drugs, and other iniquity," but also to crack down on "the rampant scenes of violence on [TV] screens," the participants concluded.
