nited
States Surgeon General Jesse
January
17th
stated
that
a panel
of 12
behaviorialscientists have
"detected
a
link"
between
TV violence
and
behavior.Surgeon General Steinfield said his panel
found
"fairlysubstantial experimental evidence" shows a
"short
-runcausation
of
agression
among some
children by viewingviolence
on
the
screen.These
children," he
added,
"are
those
who
are already
"predisposed"
toward
"agressivebehav'or;!-'-due
to"heredity,
parental environment
andother
factors. "
The
study,
called
the
Scientific Advisory
Committeeon
Television
and
Social Behavior, was
started
two
yearsago
and
made no
actual recom'mendations,
though
it
stated some
interesting things
about
TV
violence:
Thatviolence on
TV
does
not
allow peopleto"let
off
steam."That a show called"Doomsday Flight,
"
scripted byNight Gallery's producer,
Rod
Serling,about airplanebombings,triggered
off
five airline "bomb threats" within24 hours.
And
that girls
are
more violent than boys.
The
study
deliberately avoided
commenting
on
newsshows, which
report
of
riots, bombings, murders,
and
war,
"for
First
Amendment
reasons" involving Freedom
of
Speech
and
Press.
THE
MONSTER TIMES feels called
upon
to
ask a fewquestions
of
the
Surgeon General
andanyone who
takes
him seriously:First,
what
does this ominous
report
really say? Doesit imply
that the
Federal Communications Commissionwill
soon
take
action
to
reduce
"violence"
on TV?
Will
Nixon's Surgeon General Steinfield
and
the
FCC
apply
pressure
to
supress
or
censor
someof
these shows?
And
whatabout
these
"findings,"
anyway?
Rewritten
byour
Monster TImes copywriters,
they
say (using all
the
government
study's
facts
and
news releases):
"Surgeon
General Jesse
L.
Steinfield said
today
that
he
THINKS
there's
a link between violence
on
TV,
and
violence in real life, although
the
real-life people
who
areviolent may be so, because
oftheir
environment,
or
(because
of
heredity),
they
were
"born violent"
in
the
first place;
andmaybe
TV
didn't
make
them
violent
at
all.
The
Surgeon General
of
the
United States also revealed
that
as
many
as five cranks can
make
bomb
threats
to
airlines
on
the
same day
that
plays
about
airplane
bomb
threats
are
shown.
He
thinks
that
TV violence
doesn't
let
people
"let offsteam,"
and
that
girls seem more violent
than
boys.
To
top
it
all
off,
the
Surgeon General said
he
didn't
dare
say
anything
about
violence in real life causingviolence, as with news programs, for
that
would interferewith Freedom
of
Speech
and Press-a
right guaranteed in
the
First
Amendment,
but
which seems a right
denied
producers
of
television fiction shows."There
you
have
it-in
164
words,
rather than
the 275
pages which
thecommittee's
report
took
.
Monster fans beware!
Our
President's Surgeon General
doesn't
like
monsters,
it
seems
to
us. Are we
soon
to
seelittle signs flashed
on our
TV
screens:
'WARNING!
Watching
This Monster Movie May Make You
VIOLENT!"?
Instead
of
just
violently
