Description

Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton on Wednesday sharply criticized the sex and violence in video games and other entertainment directed at children, calling the prevalence of such images an epidemic. Mrs. Clinton, a Democrat from New York, also called on industry leaders to create a uniform ratings system that would warn parents about sex and violence in video games, television and other forms of entertainment that children might be exposed to. By contrast, parents now look to a patchwork of ratings systems that differ from one sector of the industry to another. Later in the day, Mrs. Clinton joined a bipartisan group of senators - Joseph I. Lieberman, Democrat of Connecticut; Sam Brownback, Republican of Kansas; and Rick Santorum, Republican of Pennsylvania - on Capitol Hill to introduce legislation requiring the government to study the impact of media on the development of young children.
