Former FCC Commissioner (and Benton Foundation President) Gloria Tristani and Rene Balcer, the executive producer of "Law & Order" and co-creator of "Law & Order: Criminal Intent," debate whether the government should regulate violence on TV. Tristani says most Americans agree that we need to take steps to protect children from excessive violence on television -- and that there is a role for government. Balcer thinks the government should make sure parents have the tools and information necessary to regulate what their kids watch on TV.
