Entertainment in America has grown increasingly tolerant to liberal values, oversexualization of everything, more violence is portrayed, and swearing can be constant. There is not much wholesome entertainment suitable for children these days. Whether it is music, television, video games, movies, internet, or any other medium, kids are going to see a lot of smut.

Take for example Pawn Stars.Even Conservapedia approves of it because it provides free market transactions without government interference. Perhaps, but it contains rather salty language for what is supposed to be a family program on an educational network.
