U.S. Congress and Television (986 words)
Television, having arrived as a mass medium by then, was allowed in 1948 to cover hearings of the Senate Armed Services Committee.
Senate television proponents nonetheless prevailed, and a Senate Rules Committee recommendation to allow testing of a Senate chamber television system was approved by a vote of 67-to-21 on 27 February 1986.
Such rules generally require that television coverage be prohibited at the request of a committee witness; that television cameras, lights and microphones be unobtrusive; that television personnel conduct themselves in an orderly fashion inside the hearing room; and that no commercial sponsorship of committee hearings be allowed.

The age of eight is critical in the relationship between television violence and the development of aggression, because of the cognitive and emotional developments that occur at this age.
One explanation may be that television provides children with rather narrow and stereotypical characters, so that they have relatively little opportunity to express their increased sophistication if they choose television characters as heroes.(36) In one study, children who chose family members or other real people as their heroes did show a more sophisticated understanding.
