Lack Of Kids’ Shows Violates Law, Watchdogs Say

Watchdog groups have petitioned the Federal Communications Commission not to renew the licenses of two Washington, D.C., television stations. “The groups argue that the two stations have not complied with the FCC’s 1996 guidelines regarding the Children’s Television Act, which require stations to air at least three hours of educational programming for children per week. The act has never before been cited in a petition to revoke a license.”
