Parents Television Council
Parents Television Council, also known as PTC, is the most influential consumer advocate that fights against corrupt Big Media. Their website states "Clean Up TV Now, Because our children are watching, Protecting children against sex, violence and profanity in entertainment."
PTC has developed the "Family Guide to Prime Time Television". Stated on their website "..Working to Help You and Your Family Make Better Viewing Decisions." It is a day to day guide that is colored by red for adult only, yellow for adult-oriented themes and green safe for the whole family. The PTC has over 95,000 hours of media logged into their custom-designed Entertainment Tracking System (ETS).
From 1995 to 2007, Brent Bozell was the president of the PTC. Bozell branched off the PTC from the Media Research Center after he felt that decency on prime-time TV was decreasing. Tim Winter, a former television network executive who is a registered Democrat, succeeded Bozell in January 2007.
According to its website, the PTC's primary mission is to "promote and restore responsibility and decency to the entertainment industry in answer to America's demand for positive, family-oriented television programming".
