From the opening statement of John McCain: "The purpose of this hearing is to further consider the Federal Trade Commission report on marketing violent entertainment to children. This hearing is a functional extension of the one held 2 weeks ago. I want to thank the representatives of the motion picture industry for their attendance here. […] As noted, the appearance of the motion picture studio executives is somewhat overdue, and I am sure everyone is anxious to hear their testimony and then move to questions. As such, we will suspend opening statements by Members of the Committee and move straight to the witnesses, and this will ensure we will have adequate time to get through the substance of this hearing…."

Hollings, Kay Bailey Hutchison, John F. Kerry, John McCain, Rob Friedman, Jim Gianopulos, Mel Harris, Alan Horn, Robert Iger, Chris McGurk, Walter Parkes, Stacy Snider, Jack Valenti, Donald E.
