Overview

Deciding What We Watch: Taste, Decency and Media Ethics in the U. K. and the U. S. A. by Colin Don Shaw, Colin Shaw

This book considers the different constraints (in the law, cultural customs, and self-regulation) affecting broadcasters on both sides of the Atlantic and the means by which they have responded to them. The book describes, with examples, the operations of compliance regulations and standard controls. It also explores the moral basis and history of such regulation as it has until now been applied to major issues of taste and decency.
