PTC In the News

The PTC's reach keeps growing and our impact keeps getting stronger. PTC spokespersons are frequent guests on talk radio and television, and print journalists are picking up PTC material. Below is a partial listing of some of the numerous print, radio, and TV outlets that have interviewed our spokespersons, published our research, or highlighted the impact of the PTC. These media appearances are worth millions of dollars to the PTC in "earned media," which means that every dollar you donate to the PTC gets that much extra mileage. We're reaching millions of potential supporters with the message that we are here to help families take back the airwaves and stop Hollywood's corrupting influence
