PTC Tim Winter on “Sesame Street” Pulling Katy Perry from the Show:

Press Release
September 23, 2010

Statement by Parents Television Council President Tim Winter on “Sesame Street” Pulling Katy Perry from the Show:

The PTC applauds our friends at Sesame Workshop for choosing not to air the Elmo video with Katy Perry. While there is no doubt that Ms. Perry is an extremely popular performer today, the reality is that millions of families place their unbridled trust in “Sesame Street” as a source of age-appropriate entertainment for their children and grandchildren. Any amount of sexualized content – even in a small degree – is concerning for a television program targeting preschool-aged children. For those who desire such content, let them look elsewhere.

We are grateful to Sesame Workshop for their prudent action in this matter; and more importantly, we are grateful for their decades of service to children and families across the world.

To speak with a representative from the Parents Television Council, please contact Megan Franko at (703) 859-5054 or Liz Krieger at (703) 683-5004 ext. 120.

The Parents Television Council™ (www.parentstv.org®) is a non-partisan education organization advocating responsible entertainment. It was founded in 1995 to ensure that children are not constantly assaulted by sex, violence and profanity on television and in other media. This national grassroots organization has more than 1.3 million members across the United States, and works with television producers, broadcasters, networks and sponsors in an effort to stem the flow of harmful and negative messages targeted to children. The PTC also works with elected and appointed government officials to enforce broadcast decency standards. Most importantly, the PTC produces critical research and publications documenting the dramatic increase in sex, violence and profanity in entertainment. This information is provided free of charge so parents can make informed viewing choices for their own families.
Boren's Laws of the Bureaucracy: 1. When in doubt, mumble. 2. When in trouble, delegate. 3. When in charge, ponder.
