Recent Censorship within the News
Canadian broadcast standards council has banned money for nothing by Dire
Straits.
Criticism: A homosexual slur is taken out of context.
Complaint-driven
This is an industry self-regulator (independent): not publicly accountable.
Mass media institutions try to self-censor; rather than getting the governments
to do it.
This is because, if the governments censor they will be more stringent.
The CBSC (Canadian broadcast standards council) will only start regulating
censorship if the
public complains.
ASSIGNMENT ONE
One source should be in agreement with the Bill, and one should be opposed to it.
The bill claims that any content which does not incorporate or violates
Canadian values;
will be rejected.
It is administrative processes at which it see is Canadian values are
incorporated or
not. If it is incorporated, then basically they will get a tax credit.
Who gets to decide what Canadian values need to be visible? Based
on what
criteria?
Read the article, and find two more sources which would contain information
about those
who support and oppose the article. Find out the arguments on both sides, and
illustrate
what these people are trying to claim. You are then suppose to agree with ONE
of the sides.
The sources do not have to be academic
PRESENT BOTH SIDES, THEN PICK ONE; AND EXPLAIN WHY YOUR
AGREED VIEW IS BETTER
THEN THE OTHER ARGUMENT.
FORMS OF CENSORSHIP WITHIN PAPERCOULD BE INCIDENTAL OR
SYSTEMIC

AGENTS OF CENSORSHIP (CONTINUED FROM LAST LECTURE).
1. Specialized government institutions (censorship boards)
2. Other governmental agencies (post office, customs, school board).
3. Cf. Reichman: Teachers guided by professional standards are engaged in
selection, not
censorship.
4. Non-governmental organisations (publicly accountable)
Canadian board caste council.
Women movements, racial movement organizations are all non-
governmental
censor organizations.
There are many organizations which act as moral entrepreneurs in order to
have
their views incorporated within censoring certain content.
5. Production Code: and the rating system of the motion picture producers
association.
A list of rules which were distributed to PRODUCERS which illustrated
what an
a producer must not incorporate within their movies.
Example: Crime, suggested pornography was a part of these rules
Within the 1959, the foreigners were making much more money because
they did
not have the production code enacted. Therefore the Americans got rid of
the
production code and used a Rating system (which lead to a increase
in profit, and
only restricted certain ages, as opposed to a wide population).
Wal-Mart and PMRC (Parents, music, resource, council): Are the largest
retailers of music
and within the U.S.
The mail goal of PMRS was to protect children from deviant content.
Because the government will not use PMRS criteria for censorship;
because it would
violate the first amendment. The PMRS decided to go to non-
governmental agencies
like Wal-mart; suggesting not to carry must of inappropriate content.
