WASHINGTON - In deciding who is responsible for protecting America's children from inappropriate media, speakers at a Washington conference agreed Wednesday that is does indeed take at least a village to raise a child.
The conference, organized by the New America Foundation, a Washington think tank, addressed the problem of potentially negative media influence on America's increasingly tech-savvy youth.
"If we don't try to get ahead of this, the consequences are hard to predict," Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y., said of a rapidly expanding access to media.
