Summary

When judiciously interpreted, the findings of the Report to the Surgeon General on Television and Social Behavior cannot support any conclusion other than that televised violence is a cause of aggressiveness in children and young people. Given this interpretation, policy guidance research into the effects of television on society should include validation studies; field studies and panel surveys; and high priority issues such as social and psychological processes which influence how televised violence affects aggressiveness, mitigating condition, prosocial effects of televised violence, and prosocial influences of television. Policy studies should include production -- the social and economic mechanisms for freeing production from competition that makes violence so attractive; programming--the social and economic dynamics for reducing the utility of violence as a means of gaining audiences attractive to advertisers; and consumer action--social mechanisms by which various concerned public groups can learn what they should do, and broadcasters can become more conscious of public needs and dissatisfactions.
