Filed under by Amanda Toering — 03/23/2005 @ 9:17 am

Regardless of what certain activist groups would have you believe, Americans DO NOT support a ban on television content that some groups might find icky.

The poll numbers, like all poll numbers, can be spun. But look at the stats.

Q: Should the government ban the following type of program content, or not?

Cursing and sexual language
Yes: 41%
No: 56%

Explicit sexual content, such as nudity
Yes: 41%
No: 56%

Violence
Yes: 36%
No: 62%

Gay lifestyles and homosexuality
Yes: 35%
No: 62%

Drug and alcohol abuse
Yes: 33%
No: 62%

Plastic surgery for entertainment purposes
Yes: 21%
No: 72%

So-called “reality television”
Yes: 18%
No: 78%

  1. I don’t want anyone telling me what I can or can’t watch. If I am offended, I change channels!

  2. I thought this country was founded on democracy? Andd we had individual freedom? Are people becoming so apathetic that they rely on the government into controling their lives and babysitting their children? Then it’s time for change. A revolution? Time to rid our government of politicians and lobbyists. Time for them to get real jobs with real purpose.

    Telling me what I can see, what I can do, and what I can say is a violation of the constitution this country was founded on. When did people forget that? Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness?, yes, but at what cost? Freedom and individual choice can be in danger soon.
