Spielberg Blasts 'Irresponsible' Tv Industry

STEVEN SPIELBERG has blasted today's television industry for exposing children to gruesome shows. The SAVING PRIVATE RYAN director spoke out at the International Emmy's directors meeting in New York on Monday (20NOV06), warning producers to act more responsibly. He singled out graphic trailers which showed "blood and people being dissected" such as for forensic drama CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION. Spielberg said, "I'm a parent who is very concerned. "Today we need to be as responsible as we can possibly be, not just thinking of our own children but our friends' and neighbours' children. "We certainly need to be responsible and careful about what we put into that box, because what comes out the other end truly has changed the world and will continue to change the world, for better or worse."
