From the Guardian: media reaction to an independent report regarding sex-infused images of minors on tv and in ads. The Bailey Review, named for its chair, Reg Bailey, Chief Executive of the Mothers' Union, runs the gamut and includes such recommendations as "Ensuring that magazines and newspapers with sexualised images on their covers are not in easy sight of children," "Reducing the amount of on-street advertising containing sexualised imagery in locations where children are likely to see it," "Ensuring the content of pre-watershed television programming better meets parents’ expectations," "Introducing Age Rating for Music Videos," and "Making it easier for parents to block adult and age-restricted material from the internet." The media seems to be "confident" it can respond to these concerns. More here, here, here, and here.
