Tell United: No Media Violence on Overhead Screens

A family encountered a common problem recently on a United Airlines flight from Denver to Baltimore—they felt the in-flight movie playing on overhead screens was inappropriate for their young children. United was showing Alex Cross, rated PG-13 for “violence including disturbing images, sexual content, language, drug references, and nudity.” The film features “a homicide detective (who) is pushed to the brink of his moral and physical limits as he tangles with a ferociously skilled serial killer who specializes in torture and pain.”[1]

Tell the MPAA: Stop the Marketing of Violence to Young Children

The tragic shootings in Newtown have shined a spotlight on video game violence, but violent media is marketed to children long before they encounter Call of Duty. Since 2008, thousands of parents and the staff of the Federal Trade Commission have joined CCFC in calling for the Motion Picture Association of America to stop companies from marketing violent PG-13 movies to preschoolers. To date the MPAA has refused to act.
